Corsets are a popular staple of many different fashion and costuming eras. First originating in Italy and eventually being introduced into European royalty courts in the 1500s by Catherine de Medici, corsets quickly took hold as a tight and elongated bodice that allowed you to shape or control your own figure as much as you liked. Seen as indispensable parts of the fashion world, corsets seized the fashion world and fast became a popular and relevant part of fashion design for the next three hundred years.
Corsets quickly became known as both underwear and outerwear. The boned designs were an easy way to shape your figure, whether the style was to restrain your bodice or shape and accentuate it. Corsets reached the height of their popularity in Victorian England, where every woman had a corset and was encouraged to wear them as often as possible, even while pregnant in some cases, in order to accentuate their ideal figure and design. Today, the Victorian corset remains popular and is the traditional version of corsets as we understand them, a tightly bound corset highlighting the hourglass figure of many women that pushed the chest upward and cinched the weight as tightly as possible.
Corsets are used today in both intimate and costume settings. They can be found in steampunk, pirate, cyberpunk, burlesque, and Victorian cosplays, and make up a reliable portion of costume and Halloween costume designs every year. However you choose to wear your corset, you’ll likely want a wide variety of colors available to help fill out your costume choices. Brown corsets are a popular neutral staple that can be worn for many different costumes or looks and still accessorize and highlight all the best parts of your look. We’ve put together a list of our favorite brown corsets here!
