After completing a six year apprenticeship with the large corset manufacturers Totterdell & Son in Portsmouth, England at the end of the 19th Century, Harry Voller founded his own company "Vollers - The Corset Company".
In business since 1899, this family run company is one of the oldest established corset makers in the world. They continue to produce traditionally made, steel boned corsets, renowned for their high quality and authenticity. Each corset is individually Hand
Crafted from start to finish by an experienced corsetiere in their own factory still located in Portsmouth, England, using the finest materials and fabrics available.
Ian Voller is the fourth generation of the Voller family to own the business, having taken over the company together with his wife Corina from his uncle in 1991.
Ian oversees the day to day running and direction of the business which he has seen steadily grow, and now employs over 30 at his Portsmouth based factory.
At one time the corset industry employed around 9,000 people in Portsmouth alone and Vollers is now the only remaining factory in the area. Other companies have tried to copy their unique style but have been unsuccessful.
Corina heads up the design team within the business and travels extensively throughout the world to source an interesting and diverse range of fabrics and materials, to constantly update the range of corsets on offer.
Much has changed since Harry Voller founded his company but one thing has remained constant throughout the years - the famous Vollers quality and attention to detail are as important today as they have always been.
Over 50 overbust and underbust corset styles are available, in fabrics including satin, silk, PVC, denim, glitter, velvet and brocade. Many designs are based on 19th century patterns that date to the founding of the company.
