Basques fit over the torso and bust for a slimming shape; they are characterised by their length, which reaches down to the hips. They often feature structural boning or panels to help create a more rigid shape to flatter the female form. They can be worn with or without straps, and are crafted from beautiful fabrics for a luxurious look. Basques were popular items to wear in the Victorian era. The term in this context refers to a bodice or jacket, which could be worn with a skirt and they could have additional feature such as sleeves. Nowadays we adore the Victorian style look, and love to reminisce with vintage clothing. See gorgeous brand What Katie Did to find vintage style basques in a number of designs.
