A corset is a garment to hold and shape
the torso into a desired shape for fashion or medical reasons. The corset's shape has changed over the years fashion
silhouettes changed. During various times in history, corsets have been worn by both men and women as well as children (to
provide proper posture!) Traditionally, corsets were worn as undergarments - only recently has the corset started being
worn as an outerwear bodice.
