Corsets have been the preferred choice of clothing since the 1500s. Catherine de’ Medici, the wife of King Henry II of France was a key figure in popularizing corsets during the 1550s. They are shaped in a way that compliments the natural curves of the body while providing a slimmer and aesthetically-pleasing body shape. They have also been known to reduce the overall waist size of the wearer permanently, which makes it a great option for women looking to get in shape.
The end of the 20th century has seen a rise in the desirability of corsets. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Naomi Campbell, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski and Kendall Jenner have been seen sporting corsets on multiple occasions. One of the most iconic singers and songwriter of 2000s, Amy Lee has defined her own fashion statement with corsets.
You don’t have to break the bank to create your own style when it comes to corsets. There are plenty of cheap corsets available in the market that give you the freedom to express your style quotient. The original design of corsets was made based on one’s individual body shape, nowadays, you can easily get a cheap corset over-the-shelf that is Ready-to-Wear (RTW). Corsets give the wearer a way to express their sensuality.
