Site Upgrade

Posted By on October 23, 2010

Just a quick note to apologise for the “quirks” with the site at the moment, particularly with the shop. We are in the process of upgrading the shop to make our products easier to find and to make the whole shopping experience better. The shop is working and you can buy products, they’re just on different pages than what you’re used to if you’re a regular customer – sorry!

At the moment, you can find the product categories at our Products Page, rather than a drop down menu, and you will notice that we have split products like “The Tudors” jewelry into the type of jewelry and which queen they are related to. Some pages may look a little “weird” while the work is going on but I can assure you that the shop is still functioning and we are taking orders.

Thank you so much for your patience and for all your support with The Anne Boleyn Files. The site is growing every day and it’s all down to you and the support you’ve given it – thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’ll leave you with one of my favourite “The Tudors” YouTube videos:-

    I was on yesterday and was wondering what was up — was trying to find the thread under Anne Boleyn dresses where I was asking about corset buying. Thanks for letting us know Claire…and for the link to HistoryGirl’s video! I just friended her on YouTube the other day!

      Sorry about that, unfortunately the new upgraded shop does not allow comments on product pages which is a bit of a pain but we had to upgrade. What was your comment, TinaII2None, and I can email you an answer xx

    Hey Claire — just now seeing your message. I threw out a question to any of you that have bought corsets before. I ran across this page on how to choose a corset tofit http://www.absolutecorsets.com/customer-services/sizing.htm especially with me being plus-size. I was particularly curious about where it says you should order SIX INCHES less than your natural waistline. So before I get ready to order one, I just need to know if that’s right — so figured I’d ask any of you that have more experience in this. Thanks! Tina

      Hi TinaII2None,
      I think that a corset like that would be more suitable for people who want to do waist-training and actually wear their corset full time rather than someone who simply wants a corset to give them a good shape under a Tudor dress. I bought mine from a company in the UK and they said to order one 2 inches smaller than my natural waist and I have found that it is really comfortable to wear under my Pembroke Dress. I think the best thing to do would be to contact the corset company and explain what you want the corset for and see what they say. You don’t want to be fainting or feeling uncomfortable x

    Are you wanting bug feedback here, since we might notice something not mentioned? Or would you prefer an e-mail to you? Because the ‘count’ on responses to articles is completely off (as in says ‘no responses’ when there are).

    1. Claire says:

      Yes, bug feedback would be good. The “no comments” issue is being worked on as we write this, it was something I spotted as soon as we upgraded and it panicked me because I thought all the comments had been wiped! We will get to the bottom of it.
