Why Women Love Corsets

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 171

"Diamonds are a woman's best friend but corsets keep a woman's shape" goes an old French proverb. Ever since the earliest times, high class women of society have been known to wear corsets beneath their dresses. They are underwear worn over the midsection and designed to make the waist thin and shape the torso, thereby enhancing the femininity of the woman. For more than 350 years, corsets have been worn in all styles and designs, by women ranging from royalty right down the ordinary folk.

Corsets have also been worn for a variety of reasons. Though most women wear them to tuck in their torso, corsets have been developed into a fashion statement by a few celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and pop Icon Madonna. Consequently, this trend is catching on with the youth. Thus, it is not uncommon to come across young ladies in the clubs or even on the side-walk in corsets and jeans strolling along casually.

There are different types of corsets. There are Victorian, leather, tight, bondage, full bodice, three piece corset with garters, plus sized, and most importantly, bridal corsets. Women love them because it holds everything together and makes them look slim, pretty and shapely on their most important days. Simply put, a corset on a woman makes her feel her very best.

Bridal corsets have also become very popular since every woman wants to look her very best on her wedding day. Thus, there is now a huge demand of white corsets. However, not surprisingly, a lot of curvy and plus sized women are getting frustrated in this department since it is almost impossible to find a good variety of plus sized lingerie in large stores like Macy's, let alone find bridal or white corsets.

Fortunately, there are a few niche shops online that deal in white corsets. Some of these shops have a large inventory of plus sized Corsets as well as bridal corsets and other plus sized lingerie like bras and nighties. It is however important that most women know their corset sizes before they place any orders online. This is because a woman's corset size is often one size bigger than her bra size. If you are not sure about your corset size you can always walk into a fitting shop and have your measurements taken. This would greatly aid you in buying your corsets online.

Nowadays, all women of all shapes and sizes can confidently shop for their luscious lingerie, bra and underwear online and be rest assured that their needs including bridal corsets would be catered for.
