What is the difference between corset, bustier and bodice styles?

Corset styles are a big trend right now. Since the movie Bridgerton aired on Netflix, the tide of dressing like aristocracy has risen. The movie, it spread all over the fashion catwalks.

What is the difference between corset, bustier and bodice styles?

However, did you know that there are many different styles of corsets? We are used to calling them corsets, but each shape has its own name because it has a specific task in improving the figure. Sometimes you’ll see a corset referred to as a bustier, or a dress with a corset referred to as a bodice. How are they similar and different? Learn about the differences between the most popular corsets* with Harper’s Bazaar.

The corset is a traditional type of lingerie in the West. The main purpose is to tighten the waist to create an hourglass figure. As a result, the classic corset often has a frame – be it wooden, herringbone, ivory, or steel – to define the figure.

There are many different styles of corsets, named for their back length or shape. For example, a long corselette covers the hips, the waspie is a low-breasted shirt style, cincher waist belt … There are high models that cover the chest, and there are low models below the chest. The ancient corset market is extremely diverse and rich.

The shape of the corset also changes from time to time. The Elizabethan corset was rectangular, straight, and bound both at the waist and chest. A 19th-century Victorian corset poses the standard hourglass figure. The early 20th-century Edwardian corset stretched past the hips, pushing the chest and raising the butt. The Edwardian style also has a flat stomach when compared to the curvaceous Victorian style.

Based on the requirements of traditional lingerie, today there are many types of corsets on the market that are promoted to reduce fat and tighten the waist. They still deserve to be called corsets even though they are made of modern materials such as latex and stretch fabric. Besides, the retro market also has many types of corsets that simulate old lingerie, with plastic frames.

While it looks similar to a corset, the bustier has a different purpose. A corset is intended to tighten the waist to slim down, while a bustier is to raise the chest to create a bouncy bust. Therefore, bustiers usually do not have a waist-tightening feature and are also more comfortable to wear.

Today’s fashionable corsets are actually closer to bustier than classic corsets, due to being made of stretchy fabric, often without shaping and lacking the traditional waist-tight feature.

Among the modern bustiers, the basque/guepiere shirt stands out. This design combines a bustier body, a tight corset, and a garter belt. Sir Christian Dior took inspiration from the basque to create a classic silhouette for the Bar Jacket.

Both bustiers and corsets are lingerie, intended to be worn under outer layers. Meanwhile, the bodice shirt is a product to wear on the street. In the past, the bodice was the upper body of a dress and dress set, worn over a puff-sleeve or shirt, knitted when worn. Women in ancient times would wear a bustier or a corset first, and then a covered bodice. Since bodices were originally worn with skirts, this term is also commonly used today when describing dresses with a shaped upper body such as a corset/bustier.

Today, however, fashionable bustiers and corsets are designed to be worn directly as outerwear. Therefore, it is not wrong to call the modern corset a type of bodice.
