Nowadays the corset is one of fashion trends. More then 5 years a lot of designers, for example Dolce&Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier, include this subject of clothes in their collections.
Why the corseted female figure is so fascinating for men? Because using a corset can be reached the ratio between waist and hip 7:10 – the most sexually attractive type of figure.
REAL WAIST TRAINER OR IMITATION?
First of all we would like to draw your attention to the difference between a corset and a bodice, because these names are often used interchangeably. Very often in the shops, especially in the lingerie ones, you can find the wrong names – anything remotely like a corset is called a corset.
The bodice is an imitation of the corset, it plays a purely decorative role. Bodices are often used for wedding, evening and prom dresses. Instead of lacing they often have a zipper; also hooks, snaps, buttons, etc. can be used. Lacing can too, it gives very little cinching effect (just a couple of cm) and acts more as a decorative element. The bodice can not provide the necessary support for the bosom or shrink your stomach; it has no such effect as the corset. The bodice’s bones are usually plastic, they are easy to bend, and can even break.
The corset (even with little cinching effect) serve one primary function: to give the body a “fashionable” shape.
The corset raises the breasts upwards and makes your stomach perfectly flat. The corset emphasizes the natural curves and hides figure flaws. The corset is perfect for waist training and is capable of incredible things. Wearing the corset you can create a graceful hipline, visually enhance your breasts, correct your posture and even stoop. Of course, we mean minor problems, as in case of serious postural problems you should consult doctors; for such cases there are orthopedic corsets.
TIGHTENING THE CORSET
In order to make a corset a special metal corsetry fittings are required, as well as materials intended exclusively for sewing the corset. In each corset in most cases there are several layers of fabrics and adhesive materials (except single-layer corsets), and metal bones with extra-strength and resistance to deformation. Due to this nuances, it is a tight construction capable to help to shrink the waist up to 10-20 cm. The corset surely has a lacing, it can be back- and front-lacing – due to the lacing the waist can be tightened.
INTERESTING FACT: the majority of men believe that the most attractive are the corsets with back-lacing.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CORSET?
Different corsets are designed to suit different body shapes, depending on the purposes the owner is focused on. Do you want the corset for daily wear and do you think that a stomach is your weak spot? Then the ideal solution for you will be an underbust corset of neutral colors, combined with the main items of your clothes. Do you want to increase or to emphasize the bosom? You should choose a long corset with whole or cut-off cups. Do you want to hide the lines that appear on the body sides and back? Choose a corset with high back. Do you want no one to know the secret of your slimness? A linen corset worn under clothing will be the perfect solution.
Many people ask how to wear a corset in everyday life?
Modern corsets can look great with a variety of clothing. They add nicety and aristocraticness to the look. The corset looks especially good worn in combination with a blouse and trendy long skirt. High corsets with cups or straps can be supplemented with wrap or bolero. Also, you should pay particular attention to the fact that a short corset worn over a dress looks great. This choice can emphasize the waistline favourably. A corset in combination with pants suit is an appropriate choice for office employees. The only deviation is that the corset in such a case must be strict, that is, there should be no decorative details. And a light version of the corset in combination with tight jeans will be good for young girls as casual wear.
