Celebrities love corsets
Nowadays it’s hard to find a lingerie collection without a couple of corsets or corset and panty sets. Corsets do look sexy.
Corsets were invented in France in the 16th century and were originally quilted waistcoats, worn by French women as an alternative to stiff corsets or stays.
They were only quilted linen, laced in the front, and un-boned. This garment was worn on informal occasions, while stays were worn for court dress. By the end of the century stays fell out of fashion and were fully replaced by corsets.
Later corsets became hugely popular with men but they claimed they weren’t wearing them for aesthetic purposes but rather to soothe back pain.
Even now, corsets can be worn by both men and women for fashion and medical purposes.
As some sources claim, in recent years the term “corset” has also been borrowed by the fashion industry to refer to tops which mimic the look of traditional corsets without actually slimming or shaping the body.
