Things You Should Know About Corsets

fashion of 20th Century - woman in evening corset in 30th years

The first modern brassiere to receive a patent was the one invented in 1913 by a New York socialite named Mary Phelps Jacob.  At that time, the only acceptable undergarment for supporting the bust was a corset stiffened with whaleback bones.

After disappearing from prominent fashion circles for a brief period after the advent of the brassiere, designers and the fashion conscience  have revived the trend of wearing a corset in recent years. Although most modern day designers are still inspired by the historical design, they are more attuned to meet the tailored demands of the new generation women.

Under bust  or over bust corset

Corsets are worn to accentuate the curves of the body. A corset can help restore pride in your physical appearance by correcting the imperfections in your bust and hip areas.  An over bust corset, that covers the body from the underarms up to the hips, is as fashionable as an under bust corset that sheaths the torso from below the breast down to the hips. When you stand in front of the mirror dressed in an under bust or over bust corset you will be in total awe of your sexy makeover.
