Industry Insider: Corsets

If your first pick in the lingerie wardrobe is a corset, you’re definitely the bombshell who lights up the room with your originality. The corset is special because it is one of the earliest styles of lingerie ever developed! The earliest image of a possible corset was made in 2000 BC, but was worn as outerwear rather than under the clothing. How much extra support you will get from a corset depends on how structured the body section of the corset is and also in the bust area – this can be manipulated when you adjust the corset ties, or in some cases, busks (hooks) in the back. Since it cinches your shape so dramatically, and covers more than the average bra and panty sets, the corset leaves more to the imagination while emphasising your beautiful shape.
