All Authentic Corsets are Fashionable
But What’s a Fashion Corset?
Hello OC Blog Readers! I am back again to answer another FAQ we get here at Orchard Corset. We have many stunning authentic steel boned corsets to choose from-each one a fashion statement over or under your clothes. But make no mistake, these are high quality authentic steel boned corsets-not lingerie. We do, however, offer a selection of fashion corsets-both strapped and strapless-to add shape to your sizzle.
Fashion corsets have been around for a very long time- Frederick’s of Hollywood made quite a name for themselves selling them several years ago. A fashion corset usually has plastic or acrylic boning, and might even have some steel boning at the busk or laces. Generally they are of the overbust variety and make for very sexy lingerie that offers some slimming and shaping. Our fashion corsets (style numbers 709 and 799) have flexible steel boning, a full-length hook and eye closure up the front busk and lace up the back. These sexy and slimming fashion corsets offer a great push-up effect for your bustline and detachable garters to really spice things up! Fashion corsets are not designed for waist training or tight lacing ventures.
Authentic steel boned corsets from Orchard Corset offer a 100% cotton inner layer for added strength and durability often required of authentic corsets, waist tape for cinching reinforcement, modesty panel (lacing guard), beautiful yet durable outer fabric layer and metal grommets. Our steel boned corsets are ideal for waist training, providing support, giving you knock-out curves, costumes and special events-or just to look amazing!
It’s important to note that sizing is VERY different for our fashion and authentic corsets. Fashion corsets are sized based on your bra size, and our steel boned corsets are sized using your natural waist measurement and other considerations. Corsets are very much in fashion right now: overbust, underbust, double-steel boned or fashion. Each corset is perfect for what it does-so know what you are looking for your corset to do and we guarantee you will be thrilled with it at Orchard Corset!
