Sometimes I cannot help but revisit past product reviews as they are worth sharing all over again. This past Fall, we got a comprehensive look into the CS-411 underbust corset from Orchard Corset. A wonderful style for those with a shorter torso like myself and suitable for average torso lengths as well. The exciting part with these staple styles, Orchard Corset occasionally surprises us with fabulous limited edition prints and colours. The key is, snap them up quickly as once they are gone…they won’t be coming back!
Since I have already written a complete review of the CS-411 recently, make sure to check it out here before reading on –>http://pinuppersuasion.com/2014/11/12/a-hint-of-lavender/.
This past Christmas, Orchard Corset released the CS-411 in a very limited edition Cherry print and I simply had to have it! Normally I shy away from ornate prints like these as my corsets tend to be either black or neutral shades for more wardrobe versatility. But in this case, I found the cherry print to actually be an accent piece that was well suited to be worn over your clothes as a lovely compliment to any ensemble.
The darling cherries are embroidered on a black sateen fabric and have a subtle pop of contrast that doesn’t scream too loudly to deter from the classic appeal. Red and green being two of my favorite colours to wear, it was quite easy to pair it with various items in my wardrobe. Less is more; using solids to showcase the delicious fruitiness is the way to go! With an obsession for vintage cherry style necklaces, I had more than a few to choose from to complete the outfit wonderfully.
Corsets have become mainstream in recent years and the selection among quality brands like Orchard Corset is flourishing. Whether you are a serious waist trainer or occasional corset wearer…there are a multitude of fabric, colours and prints to suit everyone’s taste. I am over the moon excited that the team over at OC heard the cries of us short torso customers and has recently released the CS-426 short! Stay tuned for a review in the near future…I shall be getting one of them very soon :)
