Corset Q & A Episode 33: Why Doesn’t The Sizing On The Vedette Shapewear Package Match My Order?

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.

Why Doesn’t The Sizing On The Vedette Shapewear Package Match My Order?

Ugh, did you watch the video?! I totally forgot that morning I was going to be in the video! Why didn’t Cheri remind me to sit up straight?!?

With the name of Orchard Corset, customers are often surprised that we carry shapewear in addition to corsets! Customers that order our Vedette shapewear are sometimes confused when they receive their shapewear package and the size is different than their waist measurement used for the corset sizing. However, this is totally normal for the sizing for all our shapewear (the most popular being Vedette). The sizing you see on the package is based on European sizing and has no relationship to the size of your natural waist. If you view any shapewear item on our website (here’s a link to the very popular Vedette 348 waist cincher so you can see what I’m talking about, the sizing info chart is just below where you would choose your size) we provide a sizing chart for each shapewear product. And for Vedette there is a range of natural waist sizes for each vedette size. Additionally, you should not “size down” in shapewear like you would in a corset. And if you still need any other guidance or you’re unsure about the sizing you are welcomed to contact our sizing specialists anytime at

Hopefully that clears up any concerns you might have about the shapewear sizing! Please let us know in the comments if there are any questions that you’d like to see answered in our Corset Q & A series!
