Perfect First-Time Corset: Single Steel Boned Underbust

Sexy and Comfortable

Single Steel-Boned Underbust Corsets

Looking to try corseting for the first time? Not sure if waist-training, or even tight-lacing is your thing? Maybe you are looking for all-day back support to wear either over or under your clothing. Corsets are very “in fashion” right now, so perhaps you are looking for an eye-popping accessory to wow your friends.  Check out these amazing-and very comfortable-corsets from Orchard Corset – perfect for the novice corset wearer, but exceptional enough for the seasoned pro!

Danielle in our CS-305 Black Leather Underbust Corset

First up is our CS-305 Underbust Corset. This corset is available in both leather and satin. The leather is 100% premium lambskin and is available in 4 colors (black, brown, red and white). The satin is our high shine, high strength satin in your choice of jet black or burgundy. The CS-305 has a Silhouette Level 1 curve and contains 12 spiral and flat steel bones. It’s is a standard length, measuring 10″ at front busk, 10.5″ at the back laces and 9.5″ down the side. This corset weighs in at about 1.7 pounds (lighter than our double-steel boned corsets), but offers incredible support and shaping, with more comfort and freedom than the “stiffer” CS-411 or CS-426 models.

Madeleine in our CS-305 Red Leather

Although this corset is only a Silhouette Level 1, it does not diminish the curves you have. The single boning is more pliable than double-boned corsets and molds nicely to your shape. I am quite curvy and have no problem wearing this corset and still have my curves! It does not dramatically amplify your curves, but reinforces the curves you have. It is extremely comfortable and provides great support for your back and tummy. The leather corsets are really soft and supple and have that yummy leather smell!

Here is one of MANY awesome reviews from our customers:

Can’t Go Wrong!

“I’ve tried a number of lingerie/corset sites, and so far Orchard Corset is the only place where I can trust that whatever I order will be high quality. This corset is easy to wear, produces a FANTASTIC shape and is the best I’ve ordered yet! I bought it to replace a pathetic “corset” that came with a Halloween costume I bought at another store, but the hourglass silhouette it creates is so stunning I’m planning a few daywear outfits so I can show it off the other 364 days of the year!”

CS-331 Denim Corset w/ Front Buckles

The same is true of our super fun CS-331 Denim Blue Underbust Corset with Front Buckles. This corset is nearly identical to the 305, except it is denim and does not have a split front busk (which makes this corset a bit trickier to get on, as you have to pull it over your head or hips). On the plus side, if you are inexperienced you don’t have to worry about fastening those pesky pins and loops!
The 331 measure 9.5 inches at the front, 9 inches on the side and 10.5 inches at the back. This corset is 100% cotton and great for summertime or with a pair of jeans. The 331also has a Level 1 silhouette, but with just a bit more hip flare than the 305 and is pliable enough to fit and flatter your curves. A sizing tip for both the CS-331 and CS-305, if you are a naturally curvy lady you might need to order one size up. I wear a 22 in the CS-426 and CS-411, but need a 24 in both of these Level 1 corsets.

Don’t believe? Well here is what a fan in Montana had to say:

“This is probably my favorite corset simply because it is so wearable and it dresses up and down. So many possibilities and the quality can’t be beat!”

I have been with Orchard Corset since June of 2012 and what a journey it has been! I've gone from complete newbie to Marketing Director to Chief Operations Officer and I've learned more about corsets, corseting, shapewear, social media and myself than I would have ever thought possible. I have really enjoyed the journey and we at Orchard Corset are dedicated to providing a wealth of information for new and seasoned corseters alike.
