1700's stays with shoulder straps

These 18th century style stays are half boned with synthetic whalebone and moderately firm. They have a removable wooden busk at the front. With the wooden busk inserted they are very straight and firm at the front, without you will get a more curved profile at the front and more movability. Trimmed by hand. Type of trimmings/lacing and colours are free of choice. Made to measure.

Help out finding new retailers! Or become one?

In a perfect world, Ergi by Piratessan would have a retailer in every city in every country. However... we're not really there yet.

Would you like to sell some Ergi items? Do you know a shop near you where our items would fit in well? Click here to make an inquiry.

Right now, when making a retailer purchase of SEK3000 or more excluding shipping you will get a free Bunny Hood as a bonus! The offer applies as long as the Bunny Hoods lasts, or until November 31st 2011.

If you tell us about a retailer, leading to a SEK3000 or more purchase, you will receive a free pair of socks, in the colour of your choice. (Plus of course eternal gratitude and glory.) (And no, you can't let us know about your own company to receive both Bunny Hood and socks, sorry.)

All new retailers will be individually presented on our blog, Facebook and in this newsletter for maximum publicity. :)

Drawing Contest!

The last Ergi contest, back in 2009, resulted in quite a bunch of amazing designs, and This dress as the winning design. This is what you need to do (and know) to win this time:

To enter, you will need to send us an artwork meeting these requirements:

  • There must be two people in the picture, a guy to the left and a girl to the right.

  • They should be standing straight, fairly front facing, full figure.

  • We will use your artwork for reference on where to take measurements, so it should be suitable to put lines across to show where to measure.

  • Both the guy and the girl needs to wear some kind of underwear or tight fitting clothes (tights or the like). They should not be naked! :)

  • Shoes or no shoes is up to you.

  • You can draw in any style you like.

  • We prefer a transparent background or a pattern/interior instead of white.

  • File format: JPG or PNG, minimum 500 px width in good quality.

Send your picture to us by June 30th 2011! E-mail it to: info (at) ergi (dot) se and write "Drawing Contest" in the subject line. Include your name and country in the e-mail. By sending your picture to us you agree to us using it on our website for information purposes. (Only the winning image will be used, however)

What you can win:
The winner wins a SEK 500 gift voucher to spend in our webshop!

How the winner is chosen:
Piratessan will choose five finalists among the entries. They will then be announced here on the website, Facebook, Twitter and LiveJournal. A vote will be held on the web for one week, where anyone can vote for their favourite.
