The most usual and well-known use of corsets is to slim down the body and make it conform to a fashionable silhouette. For women, this most frequently emphasizes a curvy figure by reducing the waist and thereby exaggerating the bust and hips. However, in some periods, corsets have been worn to achieve a tubular straight-up-and-down shape, which entailed diminishing the bust and hips. A corset is a garment worn to grip and train the chest into a desired shape, traditionally a smaller waist or larger bottom, for decorative or health care purposes (either for the duration of wearing it or using a more lasting impact). Both men and women are known to wear corsets, though this product was for many years an essential part of women's wardrobes.
As well as our massive selection of corsets, you may find skirts, dresses and dresses to produce your own special style in addition to accessories created to decorate your outfit. You may also like to try our lineup of shapewear such as our Immediate Shape range, which allow you to shed a dress and boost your natural curves. Corsets are generally constructed of a flexible material (like cloth, particularly coutilleather or leather) stiffened with boning (also known as ribs or remains) inserted into stations in the cloth or leather. From the 18th and early 19th century, thin strips of baleen, also called whalebone, were favoured for its boning. Plastic is currently the most commonly used material for lightweight, faux corsets along with the vast majority of poor-quality corsets. Spring and/or coil steel is preferred to get stronger and generally superior quality corsets. Other substances used for boning have included ivory, wood, and cane.
