If this is your first Orchard Corset we highly suggest visiting with one of our sizing experts before ordering your corset. See our sizing page for additional information.
Corsets are intended to cinch down several inches. We recommend that you order 5-7 inches below your natural waist measurements to allow for cinching. Plus sizes (waists over 38 inches) should order 7-10 inches below. So if you have a 29 inch waist, we would recommend that you purchase a size 24. A size 24 will have a 24" waist when fully laced shut. The hips will measure about 12 inches larger than the waist, and the underbust is about 6-7 inches larger when laced shut.
