What is the best corset for you?
The corset that fits you best!
Hello OC Blog Readers! With so many new styles joining the corset line up at Orchard Corset, I thought the time was right to do a quick run down of the overall shape of each style and the body types that will work with them. Let’s take them one-by-one (and I will add new styles to the blog as we get them). We have individual blogs on most of these for a more in-depth review of each style.
CS-201 Wasp Corset: This is a ridiculously comfortable corset with 16 flat and spiral steel bones that will work for most every shape because it is short enough that for most people it won’t matter if you have large or small hips or underbust measurement compared to your waist. Now if you have a very short torso (under 8″), then you might find you need some natural curve. This corset hugs the body very well and is available in cotton, satin and single layer mesh.
CS-305 Standard Corset: This corset is designed for an average torso length and someone with less natural curve, especially at the hip. The 305 is about ten inches long with a moderate curve. and 14 spiral and flat steel bones. If you have little to no hip to waist ratio-this is the best corset for you (until you train your waist down and move into a curvier style)
CS-345 Hybrid Corset: This corset offers some great versatility. It rides higher in the back to help avoid back bulge, but not as long in the front to allow for standard torso lengths. The 345 boasts 16 flat and spiral bones spread throughout the corset for real comfort. It offers the same curve at the waist as the 411 or the 426 (and the contoured bustline of the 426), but almost any body type can wear-from a slim athletic build to the super curvy. If you have a torso length of 10″ (as tested by the 426 video method) you can wear this corset.
CS-411 Steel Boned Standard Corset: One of the all-time favorites here at Orchard Corset. This corset has 18 flat and spiral steel bones (most are in doubles) and will fit many shapes. It has the same curve at the waist as the 426, but is a couple of inches shorter and does not require an ample hip spring. It is similar in length to the 305, but has a greater curve from the waist to the hip.
CS-426 Longline Steel Boned Corset: This has traditionally been our best-selling corset (of course that was before the addition of all of our new fabulous styles!). The 426 has 24 spiral and flat steel bones (most in doubles). It offers a extremely contoured underbust and extends down over the hips for most. You need to have a longer torso to make this corset work as well as ample curve at both ends or this corset will not fit you well.
CS-511 Longline Overbust Steel Boned Corset: This piece of gorgeous is the overbust twin of the 426, also boasting 24 spiral and flat steel bones. You will need to meet all the requirements of the 426 to wear the 511 and have the appropriate range of cup sizes (which depends on the corset size) to don this stunning corset.
CS-530 Overbust Steel Boned Corset: Finally! An overbust corset that fits most body types! The 530 has 24 flat and spiral steel bones running through the body of corset (most in pairs or double-boned). This corset offers a similar cut to our CS-345 in that is cuts up high over the hip. It offers fuller coverage over the breast than our 511 and sits high in the back. We have a more in-depth video blog that really showcases this versatile and stunning overbust corset.
