There are a lot of misconceptions about corsetry, especially modern design, for being archaic, restrictive, and fetishistic. It’s safe to say that corsets are no longer what they used to be, and are actually designed with more comfort. What a corset can do to a woman’s shape is so much fun to play with, and it can be safe when not tied severely tight. Corsets are even being worn as outerwear now in a classy way, with added garments to cover up skin and let the beautiful patterns and designs of corsetry shine through. On Now That’s Lingerie, we want to change your mind on what a corset is now by looking a little bit into the past and showcasing some gorgeous #ShopNTL styles.
We can see even from looking at old images of corsets that the shape created by them was a much more defined one than the modern corset. Waists were cinched into almost impossible dimensions, creating a barely there waistline with a very enhanced curves. Corsets were standard for women back then, and so women were forced to go everyday in constricting wear that was difficult to breathe and move in. Luckily, things have changed and corsetry is a choice, whether to enhance a woman’s curves, to wear as clothing, or for the bedroom to spice things up. See for yourself with some of our inventory!
