Bustier Corset

Apr 3, 2008
A corset bustier, alternately bustiere, is an article of clothing for women, which is form-fitting and is traditionally worn as lingerie. Its primary purpose is to push up the bust by tightening against the upper midriff and forcing the breasts to move up, while gently shaping the waist. This piece of lingerie reaches down only to the ribs or the waist and has a different function. It looks somewhat like a Basque, but a bustier is shorter and extends from the breasts to the hips, though modern bustiers usually only reach until the lower midriff.

Boning is the key in discerning a corset bustier from an ordinary corset; very light boning, to be exact. Its boning is not as stiff and hard as a regular corset, so there's less discomfort and lighter support to the body while retaining the shape improvement that a regular corset gives.Yet another divergence is that the corset bustier is manufactured with lighter fabrics; the back is elastic and often made of stretchable synthetic textile like spandex or lycra. Hook and eye closures usually act as the bustier's support, but others sport lace-up backs.

Another difference is that a corset bustier is made of lighter fabrics than a regular corset. The back is stretchable and often made of elastic synthetic fabrics such as lycra or spandex. They usually have rows of hook and eye closures at the back but some corset bustiers have lace-up backs. A corset bustier is worn under blouses or tops, such as under formal office clothes, bridal wear or evening gowns.This lingerie must not be machine washed and should washed with cold water. Hot water will wear out the elastic and is dangerous for the boning.

The lace-fabric, garter-strapped corset bustier doubles up as a push-up underwire bra for inner wear and as a camisole for outer wear, with panties usually included. Depending on your preference, you can wear it with or without straps or stockings. The epitome of sexy fashion apparel, the corset bustier is a multi-purpose garment that makes a woman's figure curvier, sexier, alluring and desirable by emphasizing all the positives while hiding the negatives.
