Victorian Corset

Victorian Corset and Corsetry

Although the corset was in fashion for some years, it is now looked upon by the majority of women as a needless overindulgence. Throughout the 19th century, the corset carefully restricted and re-shaped the figure by tight seams, fabric, bone, metal and laces. According to period, the closing of the corset was made at the front or back and the length was short or elongated above the hips. Such various features changed as the style of women’s garments were reinvented according to the fashion of the day.
