Do you remember Audrey Hepburn and her iconic 18 inch waistline? Most women with a waist of about a mile would die for such a waistline. How did women manage to get such envious little waists in “these” days? It was the corset, an undergarment that covered the area from the chest to the hips and shook the waist to the desired extent. This gave the body flattering curves.
How it started
It started with Queen Victoria who popularized the corset. Known for having a discerning eye for fashion, she took off her extravagant and balloon clothes and started the low-key look. During her time, dresses with dropped shoulders and tight waists became angry and continued to be popular until recently. This style is still the preferred one for wedding dresses.
A slim and elegant waist measured by a hand buckle is the most desirable curve as it is associated with a “sexy” figure. Women do a lot to get such a waistline. One such “length” is the corset worn under the dress. It compresses the waist to make it look narrower. The end result is fantastic. It’s an undergarment when accompanied by a good supportive push-up bra that adds that coveted “oomph” factor. Needless to say, it has become a misery for all of you.
It is used in various clothes – especially in the wedding dress. It is usually part of a shoulder-length or strapless wedding dress or gown. It is used not only in formal wear, but also in elegant casual wear, especially picnic dresses with floral prints and pastel colors. These dresses usually look cute and sexy at the same time.
