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. The CS-479 is designed for established waist trainers and has extreme curves. We recommend ordering 6-9 inches below your natural waist measurements to allow for cinching. So if you have a 31 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 16 inches larger than the waist, and the underbust is about 9 inches larger when laced shut.
