Corsets have been a part of the ladies' fashion trends for centuries. Through time, it changed its shapes and designs. The most popularity this article of clothing received was in the sixteenth century in Europe. Initially, women wore it as an undergarment. In time, it became even more fashionable and appeared above the regular dresses.
The main task of a corset is to make the waist of a woman smaller. The strong contrast between a thin waist and the enhanced buttocks of the 18th century was considered beautiful. Tightlacing was meant to create the desirable hour-glass shape.
In addition, visual tricks were used to highlight the size of a waist. Women used huge petticoats, bustles, and jackets with the artificially inflated shoulder to make their waist seem smaller.
