Is This Normal? FAQ’s from the Orchard Corset Customer File
Hello OC Blog Readers! We get questions from our customers all the time asking us if this is normal or if that is to be expected. Some concerns are common corset waist training growing pains; while others should be addressed and perhaps a change in corsets or behavior is warranted.

The Perfect Waist “Cincher”
Hello OC Blog Readers! I am thrilled to announce the arrival of a new corset style here at Orchard Corset- CS-301 Wasp Mini Corset. This too cute corset is so comfortable that it can be worn just about anywhere.
This corset is just 8 inches at the front and back and 7 inches down the sides. It has 12 spiral and flat steel bones, metal grommets and waist tape (all the good stuff you expect from Orchard Corset). We currently have available in black satin, from a size 16-46 (that’s right…16!) We are anxiously awaiting samples in cotton, leather and other fabrics and colors-and expect to have this amazing satin print (seen below) on the shelves in the very near future!
I have no problem wearing this corset all day! What I really love about this corset is its versatility-curvy steel-boned waist trainer AND fashion accessory to make any outfit POP! I wore this out last night to a local wine bar and received tons of compliments (and remember, Wenatchee is a small farming community) Long or short, curvy or straight-this corset works for everyone! The CS-301 is the perfect addition to your corset collection…or perhaps the ideal gateway corset :).NEW Corset at OC!

Corsets and Shoes and Garters-OH MY!
The Ultimate Pin Up Experience
Hello Guys and Dolls! I had the most AMAZING experience last weekend and I had absolutely feel compelled to share it with our readers! Orchard Corset and Old School Pin Ups have enjoyed a great relationship with our shared love of corsets and Rago Shapewear, but I had never had the pleasure of meeting Trixie and Lance and seeing the studio until I made the short trek (~2.5 hours) over to Seattle on Saturday.
Trixie and I have chatted much over emails…and I suspected would love her. I had no idea, however, just how fabulous and full of life she is until meeting her in person. My boyfriend, Gary, and I made our way up to the studio located right in the heart of the world-famous Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle on Post Avenue. Lance Wagner, photographer extraordinaire, was there to welcome us with his warm, gentle smile and professional demeanor.
I left Gary to chat with Lance while Trixie escorted me to her wardrobe and make up “boudoir” (OK, so it’s a just a room separated by a velvet curtain-but it was so “boudoirlicious”!). Trixie has such a collection of corsets, bustiers, shoes, bras, panties, dresses and accessories that Victoria’s Secret would be jealous. Believe me when I tell you there is something for everyone and everyBODY! But first…we need hair and makeup.
Trixie is an absolute genius with hot rollers-I had no idea my hair could do that! I really felt like an Old School Hollywood starlet. Add some false lashes, garters and stockings and sensational shoes and I was in a time warp. Trixie doesn’t allow her clients to do what we women do all too often-put ourselves down and pick apart our bodies. She truly believes all women are beautiful, radiant beings-and she will have you believing the truth in that as well.
Now this transformation from modern woman to vintage pin-up takes some time…but you will love every minute of Trixie’s pampering! During this time Lance will is prepping and lighting sets. Did I mention there are many retro “sets” to choose from? Pink Poodle Kitchen, Tiki Room, Bachelor Pad, Round Vegas Bed,Bamboo Lounge, World of Tomorrow and more. (Now might be a good time to mention Old School Pin Ups also does a Retro Photography for couples and families – I can see next year’s family Christmas card-as the Cleavers. But I digress.) Lance is a master with camera and lighting. I almost enjoyed watching him work his magic as I did watching Trixie work hers on me.
Now ladies, if you are concerned that will be embarrassed or too shy to parade around in garters and ruffle panties-don’t be! Trixie is your own personal cheerleader, and Lance has such a calm, quiet professionalism about him that puts you at ease immediately. He has a long resume and the quality of his photography is unparalleled. Almost before you are redressed in your modern attire, Lance will have selected a bevy of beautiful photographs for your approval. The whole experience was so much more than I could ever have imagined or hoped it would be.
If you live anywhere near Seattle-GO! And if you don’t, well it has much to offer as a vacation destination and Old School Pin Ups is at the top of that list!Find Your Inner Goddess at Old School Pin Ups Corsets and Shoes and Garters-OH MY!
