It’s Salt Lake Tightlacer’s 20th anniversary!

Famous label, famous maker.

For 20 years in the Salt Lake City area and beyond, McGrews has provided custom corsetry to every sort of community you can possibly imagine (as well as to some you probably can’t imagine).

See our portfolio for more samples:)

Our services are widely known, and clients consider us a destination for the best-fitting custom work with attention to all the details.

A visit in person is required. It’s the best way to achieve perfect fit and function.  We customize a pattern for each client. That person then needs to be available for 1 – 2 fittings.

If you are a discriminating enthusiast, we advise that 1) you accept no substitutes, 2) that you never buy a corset online without the ability to try it on first, and 3) that you quit reading other people’s uninformed, bad websites about corseting.

Our services include:

  • Corsets for tightlacing and waist-training made from two or more coutil layers with internal petersham waistband. Spring steel corset stays or a combo of spring stays and spiral stays, plus steel lacing stays at the center back, through which we actually install grommets for long-term structural integrity and beauty.

  • Corsets as elegant outerwear.

  • Corsets for men and women, all sexes and genders, big and tall, specialty purpose, for all forms and functions (let your imagination roam).

  • Historically accurate corsets to be worn under period costumes for the right silhouettes (you wouldn’t want to go to all the trouble of dressing in historic fashion then just allowing your figure to do anything it wants, right?).

  • Corsets with plenty of details including laser or hand-cut leathers, custom embroidery, buckles, colored busks, hardware and fasteners, etc. Hand-painting, stencil and airbrushing services are also something you might enjoy. Your favorite design, symbol or motif can become a part of your new corset, custom bodice or costume.
