So, are any of you ladies or gentlemen wearing a corset as daily wear?  What challenges do you face and what stories do you have about going out socially with a radically altered siluette?Continue

Well, guess who is going to GeekGirl Con to speak on corsets as daily wear....you are so smart.  yes, i have been asked to sit on a corset panel that will talk about corsets from fetish to daily wear.  I am very excited.

My dear Miss Fish,

So glad you are enjoying your 411.  It does take time to properly season any well made corset.  It usually takes me about a month for something ready made.  When I have them custom made...well no seasoning required...but the cost! Land's sake...I am willing to work a corset for the the difference in proce.

Miss Jubilee, I love the 411. The curve is quite a bit more significant than anything I've worn before and that makes it particularly stunning on. It is also clear I'll have to spend more time seasoning it than what I normally do.

I was careful to read over the return/exchange policy. I'm optimistic that I did get my sizing right based on the Orchard Corset measurement chart. But worst case I think I'll only need to go up or down a single size.

I have been wearing a 411 for about a year now.  i will let you know, mine ran a little large, but since I typically order 4" down from my natural waist size, it works out ok.  I found the mesh corset uncomfortable without a chemise or shirt underneath.  The mesh is just too big and stretches too much to really cinch in.  I do like orchard corset for under bust corsets and I own several.

Miss Jubilee, I love the pic of the Mesh Waspi you posted. It inspired me to check out Orchard Corset and I am now happily awaiting the arrival of a 411 in the black cotton. :)

I have a pattern for this corset...I just have to get up the guts to put the thing together.

Comment by Miss Cherries Jubilee on August 13, 2014 at 9:24pm

It is rather....a wind tunnel type of a thing.  I did get video and i will get pictures next time.

How do you do indoor skydiving? Is the studio bigger on the inside?
