As stated in the video, all of our corsets are individually wrapped and prepared, fully-laced, before we ship to our valuable customers. However, you may want to change the location of the loop or accent your corset with one of our super strong paracord laces or high strength satin ribbon laces.

    I’ve been corset training for just over a year. I’ve bought countless corsets from you guys. My question is why does the size of the laces vary? Sometimes their super long, which I have no problem with, but more recently the laces were barely enough for me and I’m not a big person. I suggested that the only way to fix that would be to relace the corset. Which alot of new corseteers may not be confident enough with doing.

    1. Hi Shanell! Well, we have several manufacturers that create our corsets and they all seem to have their own ideas about how long corset laces should be…that’s why you will see the different lace lengths. However, if you receive a corset with laces that are much too short, please don’t hesitate to contact our Customer Service department at info@orchardcorset.com so we can take care of it for you!

      the mini wasp only has 12 steel bones. I was under the impression that a proper one for waist training should at least have 20??

      1. That is certainly not true. As long as the corset has the strength to cinch and reduce your waist. More boning will generally result in a more rigid corset which can have a more dramatic affect on your posture.

We love to hear from you!
