Jane gave me really personalized attention when I came in to be measured for my first real corset. Real corsets aren't sold by Victoria's Secret or Frederick's of Hollywood or even, I learned, Oh Baby! The real, boned, hook-eye in the front, posture improving, made to measure, slimming, made in Scotland deal is only available in Portland from Jane's Vanity. She helped me try on sample sizes. I gave up modesty as she worried over corseting and cleavage and slimming and going up a size and down a size. I left with an order placed for a beautiful corset and, as a person who struggles with slouching and poor posture, being infaatuated with the idea of corsets. While waiting for it to be made, I've managed to buy two more (much simpler ones, but still)! Jane was absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable about both the aesthetic and physical benefits of corset wearing, even though I really cared more about the latter.
Pros: Corsets, hard to find items, great service
Cons: Expensive, out of the way, small for its stock
