Have you moved from Enmore Road?
Yes we have! We moved in January 2017 and now run by appointment like an old fashioned Victorian salon at our Secret Lair in Marrickville. So you book a time to visit.
You'll find racks full, a delightful world of victorian gothic, steampunk & corsetry just like our old shop in Enmore.

Am I too old to wear a corset or any of these clothes?
Definitely not! We're not age-ist or size-ist and we are definitely into making people look and feel as great as possible through how they express themselves with their clothing. Our customers range in age from 13 to 75 so no you are not too old!
Are you a steampunk shop?
You can call us a steampunk shop, we're also gothic, alternative street wear, romantic victorian, fetish and club wear.
Do you sell Waist Training & Tight lacing Corsets?
We sell our own branded Gallery Serpentine corsets for tight lacing and waist training. These have proven the test of time and provide excellent waist compression. You can also have these custom made to fit your shape if needed. The wait time on a custom made corset is only 2 weeks! We also sell 2 other quality brands, one Australian, two European, both are suitable for tight lacing.
I hear you have a range of corsets that's popular for dancers, performers & women working corporate desk jobs, is this true?
Yes, we have a range of Gallery Serpentine branded corsets called 'The Dance & Movement corsets'. These are very popular if you want support and shape but need more movement than a tight lacing corset. These are very popular for corporate women due to the support they give when sitting at a desk for long hours and the great shaping they give you when worn under clothing.
Do you sell bridal corsets for under wedding dresses?
Yes we do! We have made a lot of these in beautiful ivory brocade, mainly in our Lola and Waspie styles. The only proviso is that you need to have a fitting to make sure that the back of your wedding gown will cover the top of the corset.
I've always wanted a fairytale wedding and to wear a corset as part of my wedding gown, do you make ivory or white corsets that I can wear as the outside of my gown?
Yes, we have a beautiful over bust style called The Turn of the Century which we can make in an ivory or white brocade or duchess satin for you. This will require a fitting and usually takes us 2 -3 weeks to make for you.
I don't fit the normal size ranges you find in most shops, do you stock plus size clothing?
Yes, we always carry what is considered plus size clothing in our shop, flattering designs across the styles of Victorian, steampunk, corsets, fetish-lingerie and custom make to your size any of the Gallery Serpentine brand products.

I Love Your Styles But I Don't Fit In Standard Size Clothes
That is not a problem for us with most styles that we make, ie. the Gallery Serpentine label. Now that we've moved to a Secret Lair and can spend more time in our design & production room we can custom make for you. The styles that we make are usually based off Victorian silhouettes which tended to be very flattering for most figure types. We are very approachable and genuine with our customers and will advise and suggest what styles we think you will suit. You can book with us here: Custom fitting at the Secret Lair if you can visit us in Sydney.
If not then we can consult over Skype or Skype video with you.
