Get Waisted was established in 2003 to provide a bespoke and ‘Made to Measure’ fashion design and tailoring service. 

Our inspiration as a dress designer was, and is, taken from the style and quality that was typically present in the 1940’s and 1950’s – but given a modern twist. We continue to take great satisfaction in meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations – and in doing so at surprisingly affordable prices.

As we grew and became a success Get Waisted was able to establish a boutique in Steyning, West Sussex as well as continuing to serve our clients in Brighton. The boutique has grown and now has a small workshop where Toni can work on her collections as well as fulfilling client bespoke items and requests to restyle their favourite items for today.
