Underbust corsets fit underneath the bust and add tightness to the torso area. They offer a slimming effect with the aid of structural boning and often also feature corset style lacing to give a more custom, adjustable fit. Typically they feature metal fastenings at the front which secure the corset in place with ease. As underbust corsets specifically fit under the breasts they do not have cups, nor do they cover the bust in any way, therefore you may wish to wear a coordinating bra with the garment. Corsets are especially associated with the Victorian era, as women would wear them to make their waists very tiny, which was a high fashion statement at the time. However, nowadays we understand the risks of pulling the waist so tightly and take precautions as to how tight the corset should be. Today, they are still seen as a high fashion garment, and are adored by women for their shaping and elegant look.
