Victorian Style Corsets

Victorian style corsets are some of the most well-known features of the Victorian times.

Victorian times were definitely a time of high fashion!

In the search for high femininity women got into corseting. Everything in Victorian times was exaggerated. So the corset was perfect.

We know of corsets from the 1500’s – but the fashion came to a height in the Victorian times. The Victorian would narrow the waist. But it would also raise the bust,  tighten the torso, and supporting posture.

Some corsets were worn outside the clothing and some inside. Most corsets are worn by women – but some by men as well.
