Experience a Revelation at our 20th Anniversary Party!


This May marked our 20th year in our beautiful Hayes Valley boutique, and we'd like you to come celebrate with us! For our platinum anniversary, we are thrilled to launch an exciting new collaboration: Revelation in Fit will be bringing expert bra fitting for every size to 321 Linden St.


20th Anniversary & Revelation in Fit Launch Party
Saturday, July 8th, 4pm to 7pm
with all day trunk show
Dark Garden & Revelation in Fit
321 Linden St., San Francisco

Dark Garden and Revelation in Fit are teaming up to bring you the best in luxury corsetry and fine lingerie. We believe that the perfect fit is found where beauty and comfort converge, no matter your size. The Dark Garden legacy includes the only standard fit corset line designed from decades of experience in bespoke corsetry, a tradition we continue to this day. Revelation in Fit is a full service bra boutique, carrying sizes 28-46 A-KK from such favored brands as Marlies Dekkers, Scantilly by Curvy Kate, Montelle, and Panache.


If you've been by the boutique of late, you may have already noticed we've been experiencing a transformative period. Last September we upgraded our floor to a lustrous hardwood, and we have moved our Couture consultations, creation, and fittings upstairs to our new penthouse suite. The latter served to make way for Revelation in Fit to take up residence in our existing mezzanine, giving it a fresh look and more fitting rooms. The front of our shop also got a little facelift – a gorgeous glossy black exterior, and our beautiful new logo emblazoned in gold!


Please come celebrate with us on July 8th. During the day, Revelation in Fit will host a trunk show with featured vendor Panache. Take a sneak peek at Panache's fall offerings at this pre-order party, then stay for the Anniversary / Launch Party from 4 to 7pm. We'll have libations and live entertainment, including models showing off our stunning wares. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram for more details!
