Psydde and Amy Delicious founded Delicious Corsets in 1995. Psydde Delicious is a graduate of Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science (now Philadelphia University) where he studied fashion and textile design. Amy, who also attended Philadelphia Textile, has been sewing and designing since birth, or shortly thereafter, in both Philadelphia and San Francisco.
Delicious Corsets began as personal garments for Amy and Psydde. "We wanted something sturdy enough for waist-training and something wearable in both fun and formal situations." As Amy and Psydde continued creating their one of a kind pieces, it became clear that there was a niche for their work -- corsets that were both functional as waist-training tools and unique enough to wear as art.
The current Delicious catalog features styles inspired by authentic corset designs from the past as well as completely new and innovative designs that continue to break new ground. Delicious Corsets offers a selection that can accommodate someone of any gender and body type. Delicious Corsets are made to order, allowing customers the choice of fabric, color, and other options to create a truly one of a kind piece.
Delicious Corsets has evolved significantly since it's start in December 1995. Psydde currently travels the US vending for Delicious Corsets and the Delicious Boutique storefront, which opened in the fall of 2005. Amy still spends much of her time behind various sewing machines. The corsets are still made by hand, with all designing and drafting happening right in the Philadelphia based Delicious workshop. We pride ourselves on our quality and proprietary construction techniques, and strive to keep our customers coming back!
Delicious Corsets has designed and created countless handmade corsets since the first Delicious Corset was created by Amy and Psydde in December of 1995. It's been a long strange trip!
