What’s a Corset?
Corsetiers make many, widely different kinds of corsets to be worn as lingerie. What most of them have in common is that they cover the torso. They may be design to Anal Vibrators or shape the body in some way – by bringing in the waist, perhaps, or pushing up the bust. While corsets are traditionally a staple of the lady’s lingerie wardrobe, we must say we find them quite attractive and sexy on all types of human bodies: Female, male, non-binary.
Traditionally, corsets were built with stays, rigid supports that helped mold the body into shape. They lace up in the front or the back. You can still find corsets with stays (usually made out of steel today) and many modern corsets are also designed to be aesthetically pleasing without sacrificing the wearer’s comfort or flexibility. Not all corsets need to be laced up, but unlacing a corset can be an enjoyable form of foreplay.
Corsets can be made out of brocade (a thick polyester blend with a raised design), cotton, leather, satin, or other materials. Note that it is possible to wear a corset too tightly, which can cause pain and possible injury. For this reason it’s important to choose a corset that fits well and is appropriate to the body type of the wearer. Corsets come in many flattering shapes.
The two basic types of corsets are over-bust and under-bust. Over-bust corsets cover the breasts, and under-bust corsets are designed to hold up and support the breasts, starting just below the bustline.
What’s a Basque?
A basque resembles a corset but is generally shorter, extending to the waist but not covering the hips. Some basques cover the bust, although not all of them do. They may be similar to bustiers, which lift and emphasize the bust, but basques extend further down toward the hips, similar to the bodice of a dress. Some are designed to be similar to a camisole. Basques may have suspenders for snapping on to stockings or other pieces of lingerie so you can build a look.
Corsets and basques are a staple of fetish wear. Since they were ubiquitous in the 19th century, corsets and basques have an antique feel to them and can be used in historical fantasy role-playing. Whether you wear them under your everyday clothing or in the place of your everyday clothing is up to you.
