A form-flattering favorite
For many women, when we think of a corset or a corset bra, we picture a sexy and sultry lingerie get-up, matching panty, garter belt and thigh high stockings included – and not so much the clothes we wear over them. But in reality, this is only one of the many ways a corset bra can be worn. Among the many uses of this popular lingerie staple are versatility, shaping and support – just to name a few.
A corset bra can be worn all day and under a variety of different outfits and styles. Some corset bras have straps or have removable straps that can also be converted to crisscross back, halter and over the shoulder styles. Unlike a bra with straps that drag down the shoulders and the upper back, the straps on corset bras are usually much more comfortable and are made to support and make you feel secure, not to cause discomfort. Corset bras give you the midsection control and slim middle of a corset or shapewear and the support and lift of a bra with underwires and cups.
The design of the corset bra makes it not only great for bedroom lingerie styles, but also for wearing under form-fitting dresses and tops, low-cut looks, and low-back outfits. And because the corset bra is a combination of a figure-flattering hourglass shaper and a bust-lifting and supportive bra, you get the best of both worlds in one undergarment. We don’t see the corset bra going away anytime soon. This is for two particular reasons: they give you the flawless feminine figure you want, and they’re highly versatile.
The history of the corset bra
The origin of the corset goes back decades. Originally created to shape and train the midsection into the traditional hourglass shape, corsets were worn for both short-term and long-term effects. They were also instrumental in supporting good posture and lifting the breasts.
Now, corset bras are much more modern. They aren’t all created to restrict and slim the figure – they’re also made to fit comfortably and help make trickier outfits, such as strapless and see-through tops and dresses, look great.
So, add a sexy edge to your lingerie wardrobe and get a feminine, attractive shape under everything you wear. Shop HerRoom and choose from a variety of corset bras you’ll love!
