My Ode to Corsets and Corsetry
Thank you for your insight on orchard corsets. My friend and I both have larger measurements that make it a bit difficult to find otr corsets and she is looking into the orchard corset cs-411 or a petite josephine by isabella if she decides to muster up that much money. We were debating the quality difference between the two, because she is nearly certain she wants to waist train or wear it daily and wasn't sure about orchard or how it would look on a fuller figure. Your blog definitely helps :)

Well thanks love bug! <3

why do you wear corsets upside down

When have I ever worn my corsets upside down?

Answer… I haven’t.

i hope this isnt rude to ask, but could you tell your hight/weight? im bery overweight (i wear a 26/28 in jeans) and want to waist train and thought i couldnt and im just wondering if youre bigger/smaller/same as me....

I’m not going to give my exact weight… 

But I’m only a few sizes smaller than you. I’m 5’6”.

Waist training does NOT have a weight requirement. If you want to train, go for it. I’m finding that it’s actually a pretty useful diet tool as it suppresses appetite and makes you actually work out (keeping posture and stuff). So… go for it!

So, I got a corset custom made several months ago, and the bones in the back aren't straight when laced and I didn't know there was anything wrong with that until I began reading your blog. I don't know what to do? my hips are just too wide for it.

thecorsetauthority:

If it’s custom that’s impossible unless you didn’t give the right measurements. A custom corset should fit with no problems.

You cannot always blame the customer. I got a custom corset that is no where near the measurements I gave. Sometimes it’s the corset maker. 

Wore my corset to school today as part of my halloween costume. I am Zatanna Zatara! Woot!

My corset came! I have to get a better ribbon cus the one I have is currently too small (6x my ass, ebay -__-)

but yeah. I am kinda nervous about wearing this on Halloween (which is why I got the trench coat)

but it doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would. I kinda LOVE IT.

What do you guys think?

I feel weird, since it’s a skirt. But I’m wearing shorts under so it’s all gewd.

Obviously it’s not done. I need make up so I can so my Sugar Skull make  up but this is the over all outfit.

That is not a corset. And you are having a slight wardrobe malfunction in the tummy there.

oh my god, did you know… hold on wait…

did you know

Fat pEOPLE CAN WEAR CORSETS TOO?1!!?!?!??!?!

OH MY GOD

WHAT A REVALUATION.

#fat shaming

LMFAO

"I am fat and someone disagrees with me. OMG FAT SHAMING."

As a fat girl who wears corsets… who lives and breathes them actually… I’m gonna side with thisisnotacorset. You blew this way out of proportion motherofqueers. She was not hating on you for being fat… she was pointing out that your stomach should not be hanging out of the bottom of a corset. This does not just apply to fat people… this applies to every one who puts a corset on their body. The corset is too short for you (and probably too small… I ordered one of these too and it was super tiny. I’m about the same size as you.) and that is the main reason for the stomach. If I put a short corset on a long torso’d thin girl, she would have the same issue.

Generally, unless you’re comfortable with the muffin or pudge handing out of the bottom or top of the corset, you get one that is longer so that you can ‘suck in’ that fat to hide it. Having your stomach hand out of the bottom sort of defeats the entire purpose of a corset. 

Also, she is right… this is not a corset. It’s a very pretty top, and I’m sure it’s going to be awesome with your costume, but it is not a corset. It is a fashion corset, and even then… still not a good one. I’m sure after shipping and everything, you paid about 40 dollars for it…. for an extra like… 20 bucks, you can order an Orchard Corset CS-526 (i think that’s the overbust) in pretty much any color you can think of. Free 2-day shipping and a company that is going to back their product. 

You are a lovely, lovely human. Just sayin'. (Don't mind me, I am but a novice tight lacer creepin' all over your tumblr. <3)

Creep all you want bby! I love the creeping. 

Thanks for the nice words <3

I remember more pictures of the woman wearing the white one. Who is she? My friend has a pretty small torso, so I wanted to show her someone closer to her size so she can get a better idea of how it will look on her.

Small as in short? Or small as in with? The 511 will fit the same was as the 426, except with the bust coverage. I don’t know who she is particularly… but she posted the pictures on the facebook page. There was only one other, and I remember it being of a different view.

Both. She’s my first mate in my renaissance faire post.

Yeah, I remember seeing her on here. I also remember a woman wearing the blue one, but I can’t find her either.

Yeah, corsets are hard to keep track of. Hm…

I mean… it’s not crazy long… She could probably handle it. Just measure her and check, it should work :)

I measured her waist at 28”, and her hips are 40ish. I didn’t measure her bust, but it’s not too much bigger than her waist. Maybe they’ll put the small busted ones on clearance when they start selling the new ones. She would win on that, since she doesn’t need a particularly large busted corset.

Don’t worry too much about the bust. It’s not much bigger. She should be fine. Just measure her torso length to make sure it’s not too long.

She tried one at the faire. It looked like a pretty average length, and it was fine on her. I think it was the corset story type, which is disappointing because the fitter was awesome. He just looked at her and knew that her waist was 28”. He put her in a 24, and made sure the gap was parallel. He did everything right, except for selling flat steel boned corsets.

I think she would be fine in the 511. She looks great btw. I’m trying to convince my friends to come to a faire with me. Have fun! :)
