Corsets: Not Just For Ren Faire Anymore

Perhaps one of the only universal truths about fashion is that it’s cyclical. Trends that have been out of the spotlight for decades may suddenly re-surface due to a cultural trend, a literary phenomenon, or just because a celebrity likes the style. A good example is the creation of the steampunk genre, which embraces Victorian science fiction. After its popularity it became very common to find brocade vests, top hats, and even monocles for sale in reputable stores that wouldn’t have touched them otherwise. This same trend also contributed to another old fashion coming back in style; corsets.

Corsets are one of the classics when it comes to sexy lingerie. Whether it’s an underbust corset, which offers support but leaves the breasts uncovered, or an overbust corset, which provides support and coverage while also creating a great deal of cleavage, corsets can shape and emphasize you in ways nearly no other undergarmeant can. This has been a truth for well over a century, and modern fashion designers haven’t forgotten it. It’s why corsets are coming back in a big, big way.

When looking for the best fitting corset it’s important to know what you’re looking for. Fashion corsets are comfortable, and while they might have hooks and ties they aren’t typically boned. They’re more like a belly cincher combined with a push-up bra. A genuine corset on the other hand tends to be boned, which means there are vertical slats in it that will brace you, caging your sides and slimming your silhouette. These models tend to be more expensive, and the price will go up depending on if the corset has actual bone in it, or if a less expensive material like steel was used.

Tailor Made Lingerie?

While traditional lingerie stores are good places to start a search for a corset, if you want something that’s a little more heavy duty then it’s important to remember that you get what you pay for. While corsets can be made to fit, it’s often a good idea to get one that’s been sized for you. Handmade corsets are definitely more expensive, but if you want to have something that slims you down that’s still as comfortable as possible then it’s important to get a corset that’s made for you. Especially if said undergarmeant is going to be worn for many years to come.
