How to Style a Corset

How to Style Corsets

With the rise of 19th century-based pop culture such as Bridgerton and Little Women, the corset has officially made it's debut as a top fashion trend. Used even before the Middle Ages, corsets have been utilized as a shapewear solution to thin the waistline for centuries. These garments have a notorious reputation of lacing up a woman and leaving her out of breath. Today, to the relief of all of us girls, they are used as a statement piece in an outfit opposed to a constricting underclothing. Although, they do help give awesome shape to all silhouettes!
