Featured Article: Corset

Latex Corset from Fantastic Rubber
A corset is a garment worn to mould the torso into a desired shape. Both men and women are known to wear corsets, though women are more common wearers.

The most common and well-known use of corsets is to slim the body and make it conform to a fashionable silhouette. For women this most frequently emphasizes a curvy figure, by reducing the waist, and thereby exaggerating the bust and hips. However, in some periods, corsets have been worn to achieve a tubular straight-up-and-down shape, which involves minimizing the bust and hips.

Construction

An overbust corset encloses the torso, extending from just under the arms to the hips. An underbust corset begins just under the breasts and extends down to the hips. Some corsets extend over the hips and, in very rare instances, reach the knees. A shorter kind of corset, which covers the waist area (from low on the ribs to just above the hips), is called a waist cincher. A corset may also have attached suspenders to hold up stockings (alternatively a separate suspender belt may be worn for that).

Corsets are typically constructed of a flexible material (like latex, PVC, leather or cloth, particularly coutil) stiffened with boning (also called ribs or stays) inserted into channels in the cloth or leather.
