Corsets have been around forever, their origins reaching back to the 1500s in Europe. They came into existence after the tailoring of dresses made women more body conscious. From then on, corsets have been popularly used to give women an hourglass figure. They have evolved over time and, with modern trends taking over the fashion industry, corsets have also been reworked with modern twists. No longer just support garments, corsets have become more of a fashion statement. From belts to over-the-bust pieces, there are many ways to style this piece how you like it.
Corsets are a great way to emphasise your waist and to give structure to your outfit. A corset can give you a slim look, and can be worn with almost anything you wish to style it with. Be it casuals or formal outfits, the sky’s the limit when it comes to wearing this piece of clothing.
