Against all advice, I went with the CS201 from @orchardcorset
🦇...mostly for the length. I really like short corsets/waspies. 🕷🕸🕷🕸🕷🕸🕷
This corset is definitely more of a modest curve and at modest reduction. Most of the corsets I own are hourglass shaped with very large hip springs so they look pretty extreme, this one looks more natural. I intentionally got a 24" instead of my usual 22-20" so that I can have a bigger corset to lace down comfortably in for longer stretches. Because of its modesty, I can see this corset being easier to stealth. 🦇 .
My usual corsets have a 10-14" hip spring. This one has 8. I'm definitely going to be putting in some hip gores in the future. .
This corset looks so different on different bodies. Some people look really curvy, and others look more tubular. I definitely think I look more tubular, but it's still an all around flattering style. 🥀 .
I've got about 50 hours of wear in this bad boy. I'm curious to see if the hips will flare a bit more with more hours of wear. Either way, orchard corset seems to make a very durable, high-quality corset for a low price, and their customer service is very helpful! 🖤 Especially if you're new to corsets, this is a great off the rack corset brand to start in ✌🏽✨
