Wow, I forgot to photograph my new Orchard Corset 411 until now.
I should preface this by saying I had a 411 two years ago that I accidentally killed by getting it wet and then not drying it properly. I recently replaced it with this one. It’s 18 inches, and I can close it to about 21. I’m still breaking it in. It’s not as dramatic or perfectly fitted as my custom cincher, but I still like it.
Also, Orchard Corset has probably changed the pattern on this a bit. This corset feels much stiffer and sturdier than my old 411, and it has a modestly placket under the front busk. Also, it doesn’t pinch my hips the way my old one did. All in all, a great buy, especially considering that it was off the rack.
