Corset Q & A Series

Corset Q & A Episode 25: Which is better for corset lacing, paracord laces or satin laces?

In our Corset Q & A series we’ll be giving you quick answers to some of the most common questions we get regarding steel boned corsets, waist training and corseting  here at Orchard Corset.

It’s Carolyn’s turn to ask the question this week and she has a common question from our customers:

Which laces are better for corset lacing, paracord or satin?

In addition to the laces that come standard in our corsets, our customers can also opt to add either satin laces or paracord laces in a variety of colors. Both types of laces are strong enough for cinching your corset, so it really comes down to personal preference. If you’re looking to stealth corset, you may want to go with satin, as they are flat and a little easier to hide under your clothes, but when it comes to strength and durability, either one will work!

Hiya! I'm the Marketing Director here at Orchard Corset, which is pretty much the best place ever to work! (like you hadn't already guessed THAT!) I live in beautiful Washington state with a husband a few animals and some kiddos in the mix. I prefer margaritas (on the rocks with salt) but a mojito will do in a pinch!

    I recently got a few of your Paracord replacement laces for my corsets. I was happy to have a rounded cord which wouldn’t constantly twist, but I realized that these are really very thick, my bows constantly get undone no matter how tight I pull, and the bow loops tend to “stick out” from my back, which makes these impossible to stealth. I put the original flat laces back in after 1 day of trying to use these. I hate wasting them though, Any advice on whether they become less stiff with time, or at least get less slippery?

We love to hear from you!
