REVIEW: CS-411 LONGLINE underbust (Orchard Corset) | Lucy’s Corsetry

November 21, 2019


[theme music] Hi everybody. For this week’s review, I’m reviewing the CS411 long corset made by Orchard Corset. So here’s the front side back and other side. Today, I’m wearing a size 22 and when I took it out of box and measured it, it measured true. And so it’s 22 inches in the waist, the ribcage here is 28 inches, So it has a six inch rib spring, and the hip here at the bottom edge measured 32 inches. So it has a 10 inch hip spring. The silhouette is reminiscent of the standard CS411 corset where it has a smooth, sweeping kind of concave silhouette It does bring in my floating ribs a little bit here at the bottom. This corset definitely is longer than their regular CS411 corset. The center front here it measures 12 inches, at the princess seam here in measures 11 inches, and that’s pretty evenly distributed; about 5 and 1/2 up, 5 and 1/2 down. At the side seam here, It’s 10 inches, and in the center back I believe it’s 12 and 1/2 inches. Because my natural rib cage is about 29 inches and my natural high hip is about 33 inches, that allows me to wear the corset with a pretty parallel 1 inch gap in the back. It does come down a little bit below my iliac crest. My iliac crest is right there and this extends about an inch below that. So if you have a long torso, this might fit kind of like a mid-hip corset on you. If you have a shorter torso, definitely check the length to make sure you can sit down because this will fit like a long line on you. So here is the CS411 long line laid flat. And for the materials at least three main layers; the fashion fabric is black cotton twill (you can also get in satin if you want) and the lining is also a black cotton twill, and in between the two I can definitely feel that there is some interlining. Now in the center front there is a very interesting interlining in here that feels very stiff You can actually- you might be able to hear it. [stiff wobbling noise] So that that sounds like it might be some very heavy buckram work or canvas – something heavily starched. Or it might even be like a sheet plastic or something to help make it stiff. This is what the orchard corset label looks like in the back and this also has the fabric content and the cleaning instructions as well as the size. And just like the standard 411 Corset, this also has a four panel pattern: one, two, three, four. And it is constructed using the sandwich method So the fashion fabric and probably be the interlining as well were all assembled together from front to back – same with the lining fabric – and then they were stitched together at the seams wrong sides together. And the bones are sandwiched in between the layers. Now with a cotton finish, because it’s really thick, it is really difficult to detect any waist tape in here. If I had a satin version it might be a little bit better to detect but yeah, it’s really hard to feel one in here. The binding is made from matching bias strips of a black cotton twill that is machine stitched on both outside and inside. You can see on the outside, it is stitched in the ditch, so very tidy. No top stitch here. And on the back, obviously, it has a large top stitch There are no garter taps in this corset The modesty panel in the back of this corset is just under 6 inches wide, so I would say it would cover a gap in the back of the corset that’s about 4 inches wide, maybe 4 and 1/2. and it unstiffened, finished in the same black cotton twill here It’s attached using a row of stitching here in the back. If you don’t like the modesty panel, you can easily remove this with a seam ripper. Now the way that the modesty panel was constructed, they do use like a hemming tape- like a double-sided tape to secure down the modesty panel before they actually stitch it down. If you are going to be removing a modesty panel, as soon as you know that you’re going to be keeping the corset and not returning it, I would recommend removing the modesty panel as soon as possible because the longer you keep that tape on, the more difficult it is going to be for you to try and peel it off. And so if you want like the least amount of residue as possible, then just go ahead and pull off that tape. And this corset also has an unstiffened modesty placket extending out from the knob side of the busk about 1/4 wide and again finished in matching black cotton twill. The busk in this corset is 11 inches long and the nice thing about this is that it fills up the length of the channel quite nicely, so you’re not going to get that weird gaping at the top and bottom, or at least not too bad. So yes, it’s 11 inches long and it has 5 loops and pins, and the last two pins are a little bit closer together The busk is also pretty heavy-duty. It’s almost an inch wide on each side and it’s very stiff. This corset has a total of 16 bones, 8 on each side not including the front busk here. So it’s double boned on the seams here with 1/4 inch wide spirals. You can see that they all attract my magnet here. And in the center back here are 1/4 inch wide flat steel bones and they also attract my magnet here And there’s a total of 24 grommets in the back of this corset Size 00 with a small to medium flange around it and finished in silver and all equidistantly spaced. They are all holding in pretty well. And in the back of the corset, there are washers. All of them seem to be holding in pretty well. A lot of splits in the back of the corset but due to the laces, they do not really catch when I’m lacing up. Now the laces themselves are your standard workhorse: your black 1/4 inch wide flat nylon cord. That is definitely long enough. Again, there’s a little bit of spring but very difficult to snap or break. They glide well through the grommets like I said before. They hold knots and bows securely. The only thing I can say about this corset, and consistently with all other Orchard Corset corsets is that they are laced very high. Now my natural waist is closer to down here, so after this review, I’m probably going to change the laces so that the bunny ears come out at my natural waist so it’s a little bit easier for me to lace up. But for the purpose of this review I wanted to show you how the laces came in the mail so that you don’t have to worry if your laces are a little bit high on your waist as well. The CS411 Longline Corset is available currently in black cotton and black satin for now. They might be expanding that later on. And it’s available in closed waist sizes 18 inches all the way up to 46 inches. For waist sizes 18 up to 32 it is $72 US And broad sizes 34 up to 46, it is just three dollars more at $75 US. And my coupon code for Orchard Corset that has changed. Instead of CORSETLUCY15 it’s now just CORSETLUCY, and it gives you 10% off your entire order. And I do not get any kickback from people using this coupon code. It’s just one that Orchard had given to me to share with my subscribers and my viewers. And this concludes my review of the CS411 Longline Corset made by Orchard Corset. I hope you enjoyed this and you learn something new.

    I love the gentle silhouette, so smooth!

    Lucy, do you recommend the cotton or the satin?

  • Reply Vee October 10, 2017 at 7:02 pm

    This looks way better than their shorter version!

    I don't have one but I did try one on when I visited their warehouse. It's definitely longline on my body but I could still sit comfortably. If you like the regular 411 but get a little bit of muffin top, this will be good for you I think. As long as it's not too long on your body that is. 😊

    I have two Orchard corsets the standard length 411 the long line 426. I found that the 426 has a very flexible pair of stays at the center back which I love ….but my standard 411 has the most rigid stiff and inflexible stays at the center back, I just cannot get them to bend to the contours of my body no matter what I do. Is the back of this corset more rigid or more flexible? I'd love to know bc I have a fairly long torso

    Yes! I have been waiting for this review ever since Orchard Corset released this corset. Thank you so much for the information.

    Thank you so much for your in depth description of the corset and the review. ☺️ Your videos are super helpful.

    Theoretically, how small can a human waist get before a corset gets into critical physical barriers like the spine itself, bowel function and arteries that run up and down the body?

  • Reply BohoRho October 10, 2017 at 9:16 pm

    This one is fave everyday corset for me. I have a somewhat long torso I think.

  • Reply Orchard Corset October 10, 2017 at 9:54 pm

    We have expanded a bit already 🙂 Black brocade and white satin is now available. We are really pleased with this corset so far and plan on expanding it even more. Thanks for a detailed review, as usual!

    Am i the only one to see a sort of a pattern on the front of the corset?

  • Reply BJ. Roberts October 11, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    I've been thinking of getting this one…. thanks for the review… I'm looking forward to getting one

    Hi,

    I watched your video about the top corset, and I was wondering about the size, did you buy a size larger ? I'm an 8 U.K. And hesitating between S or M ? Thanks a lot x

    I am wearing this corset right now! Got it a few months ago. Love this corset. It fits all my curves. No more hip bulge.

    Hi! What is your height, and you ethnicity??

  • Reply Saree B March 22, 2018 at 3:26 am

    I'm curious to know how the long line 411 compares to the 426 standard, as far as how high the back sits. I currently wear a 411 standard and I'm too short for 426 long line. It seems 426 standard and 411 standard are between the others. I'm awaiting the arrival of my 426 standard.

    I saw your other video for how to combat the lower bulge by wearing a longline as I’ve had 2 csections and gravity wasn’t kind. OC recommended the 411 standard or the 345 to help with covering the lower abdomen but I saw your video on the 345 and how it accentuated a lower pooch amd OC mentioned the point could be an issue and that’s exactly what I’m trying to avoid. My torso center sitting length is 12 and my UB to lap length is 10. I’m afraid the 411 standard won’t cover my lower abdomen and the 411 longline will be too long. I’m wondering if OC just isn’t the right fit for me and maybe I should get the TT hourglass? I want to avoid the muffin top and lower pooch

    I got my 411 longline today. The front busk and back are exactly the same length. 12" on both. I was expecting the back to be a little longer than the front.
    It's very nice and comfortable, but not what I expected in the back. I need the length. Otherwise it is great.

  • Reply Anne July 19, 2018 at 9:22 am

    I hate my stupid, short torso -_- these longline corsets are so beautiful and look great on bodies like yours, meanwhile I can barely sit down in my standard length 411 and it digs into my not-even-big thighs when I do.

  • Reply RM Smith July 19, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    How long did it take to season? I am on day 4 and still have a gap at the top. I love the shape of this corset. It is beautiful and the quality is outstanding.
    I did take the modesty panel off the back. It is much easier to lace without it.

  • Reply RM Smith July 26, 2018 at 12:54 pm

    Mine is fully seasoned now and I love it!!! It helps my back and my figure so much that I am getting a white one as well. My favorite corset.

  • Reply hilarys01 February 3, 2019 at 12:11 am

    I’m 5’4 and from bust to lap I’m 11 inches would this be ok or would I need standard?

  • Reply Merliah Summers May 5, 2019 at 12:53 pm

    your test gave me 25 size but this corset has 24 or 26. If i buy the 24 will it be too tight?
