Can anyone tell me about corset-store.com?

I found their website recently and I've been considering buying this corset from them: http://www.corset-story.com/authenti...y-031-azi.html It looks perfect, but I don't know anything about the company. The prices are rather on the lower end; the corset's a black taffeta overbust with steel boning, priced $70 marked down from $99. They claim to have very high quality products, and they do make sure that the "fashion" corsets are distinguished from the "authentic" aka steel-boned waist cincher-types. has anyone on here ever bought from them, and can you tell me about the quality?

I've heard a few things about the UK branch, and they're not positive. The general consensus has been Don't.

You can always try just googling their name and 'reviews', that often works for me.

I've bought from their UK store before, and it's generally been an alright experience. The corsets are good quality, though they do charge quite a bit for shipping and you need to cover the costs yourself if you need to return it for another size, which can end up expensive.

The customer service isn't great, but it's enough.
