New Samples: Are They Keepers?
Hello OC Blog Readers! I thought I would give our readers a little behind-the-scenes look at how we select new corset prints and styles here at Orchard Corset. When we get a sample fabric in a familiar style (like the CS-426’s you will see in this blog), we break it in and try it out for a couple of weeks. Sometimes we ask our Facebook fans what they think, or wear the corset in one of our instructional videos to see what sort of response it gets.
So why not take it one step further and see what our Blog Readers have to say! Here are some potential new prints in the 426 or the 411 (or both). The first up is a this beautiful midnight blue brocade Danielle is wearing:
This next fabric is my personal favorite, a black, dusty blue and gold brocade in the 426. It is made from a heavy polybrocade and looks fabulous with a pair of jeans! Danielle has been breaking this one in for a couple of days now.
We also have this beautiful teal satin with raised satin detailing, giving the corset a two-toned look. Danielle has worn this several times, including its debut in our “How to Lace Yourself” video on our YouTube channel.
Next up is the red with etched floral and leaf print in the CS-426. I laced up in this one for this blog…very beautiful shimmering red-similar to our CS-411 Siren Red, but with a subtle print and black satin trim.
Finally, what many of you have been waiting for-LEATHER! This corset should be available soon, so I thought I would give you a sneak peek. This is the CS-426 in Black Leather. This is same premium lambskin leather found in our CS-305‘s, but in our longline double steel boned CS-426.
We can mix and match styles with fabrics-maybe the midnight & gold brocade in a 411 and the black, blue and gold in the 426, or even an overbust. We are also looking to expand what we offer with respect to Silhouette Levels and bodice lengths of our corsets. We have had several requests to carry a curvier and a less curvy longline underbust. We are in the early stages of developing both a Level 2 and Level 4 (yes…a new Silhouette Level) version of our longline 426. Of course we have many ladies waiting on a fuller busted overbust corset. We have been through several prototypes and still don’t have exactly as we want it-but we are getting very close.
