Did you know corsets were used as a multi-purpose garment? I didn’t know until I started reading about them as I wanted to start wearing them regularly. They can be used as lingerie or can be worn under outfits to give you the curves or help your tummy appear slimmer.
I thought they were uncomfortable, like many people I know associated corsets with being tight and the feeling of being uncomfortable in them. A few of them can be extremely tight and make breathing difficult. You wouldn’t want that in an outfit, right? But it’s not all true like I discovered.
The corset which made a comeback in recent years died a sudden death as it was overdone but it is again making its presence felt as there is a surge in fashion as people have taken to it after the pandemic and the lockdown’s.
It is also due to the fact that it is a versatile piece of clothing. You can wear as a top, pair it with a dress or use it to shape your body. I have curated a list of the best corsets in the UK that range from satin and lace so you pick the one that suits you best.
