The Orchid overbust is a dramatic corset with steel boning, cut to nip in your tiny new waist and emphasize an hourglass shape. This model is made in silk with grosgrain ribbon stripes (boning casings), and a beautiful bow at the front. Who would believe that a corset could change your shape so much and still feel so comfortable?
All of our corsets are made with only steel boning (18 to 30 pieces, depending on size and style.) They're made with an understructure of English coutil and a twill waist tape, guaranteed never to stretch. The nickel (silver) busk closure at the front allows for easy dressing and undressing, and it features an under-busk flap of fabric to protect your skin from pinching. The grommets at the back are triple reinforced and there is a built-in modesty placket under the laces to prevent chafing from the lacing strings. Please note that these come with a nickel (silver) busk closure at the front, and not black as pictured. Garters not included. Dry clean only.
The corset should be up to 4" smaller than your natural waist for beginners or up to 6" smaller for more experienced corset wearers. All corsets should be worn with a small gap at the back.
