What Are the Different Kinds of Corsets?

Posted on

Since the Victorian period, corsets have been a popular fashion choice for women in the UK. Women love wearing corsets because of the unique look and flattering figure they create. Whether your style is more gothic or girly, you'll be sure to find a corset that perfectly suits your style and taste.

Here are some of the different kinds of corsets you can find at our authentic corset store:

1. Waist Training Corsets

Waist training corsets are available in all kinds of styles, from gothic and steampunk to overbust and underbust. A waist training corset is made from steel bones and designed to train your waist. If you wear your waist training corset for 4-6 hours a day for about 6-8 weeks, you will begin to see gradual changes to your waist. Your waist will look slimmer, helping you look and feel your best! For the best results, you should maintain a healthy diet and exercise. Shop our wide selection of waist training corsets here.

2. Steampunk Corsets

Steampunk corsets are rooted in the Steampunk Movement, a 19th Century movement based on science fiction and romance literature that emphasized a post-apocalyptic future where steam power machinery was prominent. The movement spilled over to fashion, and steampunk clothing is essentially the recreation of the clothing you'd find in a steampunk novel. Steampunk corsets feature Victorian-inspired elements with a modern twist and contain details like metallic and brown colors, steel-bonding and leather. View our steampunk corsets here.

3. Gothic Corsets

Gothic corsets combine Victorian, Renaissance and punk style elements to bring you a corset that's mysterious, decadent and refined. In England, the gothic sub-culture originated during the 1980s and remains popular today. Gothic corsets feature dark colors, such as black, dark red and dark purple, as well as lace, fishnets, chains, black velvet, hooks and black leather. See our latest styles of gothic corsets here.

4. Underbust Corsets

Underbust corsets can be gothic, steampunk and/or waist training. While overbust corsets cover your bust area, an underbust corset is shorter and provides coverage from right below your bust to your hips. They are the perfect fashion garment because they can be worn over top of a shirt or an overlay dress to create unique, fashion-forward look. Shop underbust corsets here.

5. Overbust Corsets

Overbust corsets provide wider coverage than underbust corsets. They contain the right combination of spiral and flat steel bones and stretch from right above the bust down to your hips. Overbust corsets can be worn as a cute shirt or paired with another top or dress. Browse our latest styles of overbust corsets here.
