However, before we get into the benefits of wearing a corset and view some sexy corset styles that are best suited for your particular figure, one cannot venture into corsetry without at least knowing some of it's naughty little history. So grab yourself a delicious glass of your favorite vintage and join me now for a brief exploration into the sinful past of the corset.

Fashions in Corsets and Lingerie 1900-1950

Brief History of the Corset

While early civilizations such as Crete, Egypt and Assyria often illustrated corseted women in their carvings and pottery, the Romans used tight lacing of the corset as a means of dominance over slaves. demonstrating their low class status and subjugation. Early Christians took tight lacing a step further as they bound their waists as a form of penance for their sins. They often accomplished this with rope so tightly wrapped, that it cut into their flesh.

As of the 15th century, corsets were worn tightly laced to portray the hourglass figure. Surprisingly, this was done by both men and women alike. The bodices of the corsets were strengthened with whalebone, wood and in some cases, wrought iron. The tight lacing trend continued into the 18th century thereby causing both women and men to sacrifice comfort for fashion.

During the Victorian Age, a woman's desire was to be married before the age of 21 years and have a waist size smaller than her age. Corsets were laced so tightly that women would suffer numbness in the lower part of their bodies and legs and frequently have fainting spells. It was considered a disgrace to show discomfort when wearing a corset in public and even more distasteful in the presence of the maid who usually laced the woman into the corset. Even during sleep, Victorian woman slept in a night-time version of the corset to maintain their desired waist reduction that was achieved during the day.

Corsets were also an acceptable method of torture. Unfortunate young girls were often figure trained by being hung onto overhead bars while maid and mother pulled in the laces. Extra long corsets were a favorite method of discipline for rebellious young ladies. At times metal screws were used to tighten the laces and a stocking needle would be placed into the busk to help improve posture. Any time the young girl would begin to droop her head, she would get a sharp prick to the chin.

After the First World War, the fixation for tiny waists gradually departed, and a more natural figure with less restrictive undergarments was restored. This was in direct correlation with the growing emancipation of women in society during that time.

Benefits of Wearing a Corset

A corset that is well-designed and fits properly can instantly transform a woman's figure. It will give her a smaller waist and provide her with a provocative, out-swelling of the hips. It gently pushes up the breasts making them magically appear firmer and fuller! It gives one an intense feeling of sexuality and sensuality as it is worn, promoting a woman's ultra-feminine nature, while accenting her best feminine curves!

Lacing into a corset can be an exquisitely sensual experience. It almost gives one the sensation of being tightly embraced by another! Corsets give every woman a natural hour glass figure while creating a marvelously erect posture.

If worn as outerwear, curious onlookers will be intrigued when a woman enters a room wearing a corset. She appears confident, assertive and delightfully seductive. Every eye will be gloriously upon her as she moves about the room, captivating those who observe her!

If worn in the bedroom, a corset can provide an extra boost for an otherwise fading love-life! It can be playfully used in the act of role-play or as a prelude to lovemaking as he participates in either lacing the woman into the corset or out of it, whatever suits his fancy!

For those of us with less-than-perfect figures, being in the buff in front of a lover may be a point of concern. In this type of situation, a corset would be a perfect alibi, so to speak, as it does not necessarily have to be removed during the act of making love. This will allow a woman to continuously look and feel sexy. She may even allow you to keep the lights on, fellas, as she knows she looks divine!

The Best in Custom Corsets

When choosing a corset that best suits your figure, I find that custom corsets designed especially for the individual wearer are best. I have viewed many beautiful corset designs in my search for the best corsets on the Internet and I have found that none are more unique and exceptionally well-made than those created by corsetier Alexis Black, of Electra Designs.

Alexis creates custom designed corsets that range in price starting with the Econo Waist Cincher from $95 ($110 for plus size) to totally customized full corsets as high as $660+. As you can see from the pictures of her designs, her work is unparalleled.

Alexis attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, however she is primarily self taught (entirely self taught regarding corsetry). She artfully began making corsets at age 16 as a hobby. She has been successfully creating and selling corsets since the early 90's and began selling online in 1998. Alexis was the first person to sell custom corsets on Ebay.

All Electra Design corsets are made to order, by Alexis herself. She takes great pride in her work and designs each corset with care and great attention to detail. She makes no two corsets alike! Her client base is generally from corsetry communities on Live Journal, most of whom live in European countries. Alexis works out of her home in Southern California.

Electra Designs specializes in remote fittings through photos and the Internet. Alexis drafts all of her own patterns from scratch. She is skilled in plus sizes and with tight lacing. She makes any style of corset and uses a wide variety of materials (excluding animal products because she is vegan). She works with each client to create a completely unique design and will also use client supplied design and materials. Alexis makes high quality corsets in three levels of customization designed to suit any budget. Her focus: comfort, health and a smooth silhouette. She works exclusively through Internet sales and is often booked weeks in advance. You can contact her at alexis(at)electradesigns(dot)net.

Choosing the Right Corset

For petite and average size figures, any style of corset will fit appropriately and look sensational! For those of us with above average curves, although any Electra Design corset can be made plus size, some styles are more suitable for the full figure. Alexis recommends the long line under-bust for plus sizes because a woman can wear her well-fitted bra and have natural cleavage, and the corset will smooth over all those lumps and bumps that may otherwise appear unsightly. This style also extends down to the top of the lap while seated, an extra "plus" for us full size gals!

A high back is also recommended to help contain some of the spill over between the bra and the top edge of the corset. Short styles can be made as plus sizes, but there can be lumps of skin that may come over the edge of the corset, which may not look very attractive.

Alexis encourages plus sizes to opt for double boning or 1/2" boning (vs 1/4). While her standard materials are quite strong and provide adequate support, additional boning will give larger sizes an even greater amount of support, structure and a sexier, smoother silhouette. There is also the option of a heavy duty busk for added abdominal support.

Last but not least, Alexis can make corsets in any style, including male corsets and corsets for trannies.

Favorite Corset Styles from Electra Designs

With so many beautiful styles to choose from, it was extremely difficult to decide which Electra Design corsets to include in this article. Therefore, I have concentrated on some of my favorites that have caught my attention and hopefully, will catch yours, as well.

Model Shein Lee's Heron Corset

This corset was custom made by Alexis for the beautiful Shien Lee. It is made of a cotton upholstery fabric with asymmetrical print that required careful pattern matching. It has a layer of cotton rip stop and a layer of strong, brushed cotton twill. It is made with a twill waist tape, a combination of flat and spiral steel boning, and steel lacing bones with two piece brass eyelets. The binding is cross iridescent silk in antique gold and black. The colors combined create an antique sage that complements the print. The corset is laced with strong antique gold poly satin ribbon. Alexis included black ribbon as well so that Shein could interchange the laces if so desired.

This style has a diagonal empire seam in the front, just under the bust. Because the pattern is asymmetrical, the placement of the seam lines and incorporate the empire seam had to be changed. In this way Alexis was able to show more of the bird and it's surroundings without chopping up the design too much. She used over 2 yards of 54" wide fabric to get the pieces needed to create a balanced design.

There is a built in front modesty panel under the busk, and a separate back lacing protector (Alexis's own design) in back. This lacing protector design is unique and special in that it is suspended perfectly between the back edges by the ribbon laces. When you lace up, it falls right into place. It does not gather up and there is no need to struggle to smooth it out. Shien can easily, and confidently lace up without assistance. I believe the waist is 21" including a 2" gap in back.

This is an absolutely beautiful corset and one of my favorites made by Electra Designs. Click HERE to see more pictures of Shein Lee!

Fragonard Long Line Plus Size Underbust Corset with Ruffles

This delightful corset is a semi-custom plus size long line under-bust corset with a high back. It was made for a client who provided the fragonard toile fabric. It is trimmed in pinkish-coral iridescent dupioni silk (binding and full, hand made ruffles) and has 9 yards of matching satin ribbon laces.

The front panel is fully boned with flat steels, and it has a boning upgrade for extra support and structure. Instead of 1/4" spiral steels, 1/2" spirals were used. There is a front busk, lacing bones with two piece nickel plated brass eyelets and waist tape reinforcement. It also has a loose lining and detachable, adjustable silk straps. This corset features Alexis's patent pending suspended back modesty panel. This particular corset has a 5" waist reduction and closes at 26". It is meant to be worn with a 2" gap for a 28" desired waist.

Baroque Peacock Corset and Bra

This corset and bra were designed to be worn with a Baroque inspired peacock burlesque ensemble worn by Kitten von Mew (see below). She wore it for a charity event in which she portrayed Marie Antoinette.

The corset and bra are made of four layers of fabric consisting of teal silk, cotton drill, cotton canvas, and cotton print for the lining. Both pieces have a front busk closure and are fully boned with a combination of spiral and flat steels. The corset has a waist tape, front and back modesty panels, and two piece nickel plated eyelets. The bra is made identical to the corset. It has the same structure and strength, and is designed to press the bust flat and upward for maximum cleavage. Note the gorgeous color of the ribbon, which is a deep, royal purple.

This is a stunning piece, just absolutely fabulous!

Black Satin Long Line Underbust Corset

This is a gorgeous long line black satin under-bust corset. It has all the basic goodies, plus a loose lining and garter loops for 3 pairs of garters. It also comes with a back modesty panel.

The loose lining is a soft layer between the corset and the wearer's skin. It's great for anyone who doesn't wear a corset liner or something under their corset because without it, you have exposed waist tape and canvas fabric, which may not be comfortable for long term wear or people with sensitive skin (unless they were something under the corset). It also looks pretty.

Silk Taffeta Custom Printed Corset

 

Alexis actually took one of her favorite artists paintings (can you guess who?)and printed it out on silk taffeta to create the beautiful under-bust corset pictured here. In this picture, the corset is not yet complete but when it was, it was laced with antique white ribbon....absolutely stunning and so creative! This was her first attempt at custom printing and it turned out absolutely fabulous!

Alexis can take virtually any piece of uncopyrighted artwork and turn it into a sensational corset similar to this one! Just amazing!

White and Black Polka Dot Econo Waist Cincher

This is a white cotton with black polka dots economy waist cincher. It has an added black satin ruffle, vertical ribbon stitched along seam lines, and a front busk with front modesty panel. It is trimmed with black satin binding and ribbon laces.

This is my favorite waist cincher, absolutely adorable!

Crimson Iridescent Taffeta Econo Waist Cincher

Crimson Iridescent Taffeta Economy Waist Cincher

This gorgeous little jewel is made of crimson iridescent taffeta (red/black) with black stripes. It is a pointed version, which is made a bit longer at the bottom of the center front to accommodate the added busk closure. This corset features a 2" wide black dupioni silk ruffle and large bow, a bit of black satin ribbon stitched vertically along the princess seams, and laces up with black satin ribbon.

Alexis used a new technique for reinforcing the taffeta, that resulted in a beautiful, strong and flexible, bubble-free surface. This procedure takes more time and patience, but she feels it's worth it for the smooth finish.

Steam Punk Pocket Watch Econo Waist Cincher

Steam Punk Pocket Watch Econo Waist Cincher

This econo waist cincher is so unique, it just had to be included! It is a cotton print, pointed economy cincher. The fabric was provided by Alexis's client and it is adorned with black satin binding and old gold satin laces. Alexis thinks this darling cincher would look great with an off white cotton oxford shirt, old fashioned suspenders, and black trousers with wide legs and cuffs!

What is so awesome about these economy waist cinchers is you can afford to purchase more than one without sacrificing quality. They start at just $95 ($110 for plus sizes). Details can be found by clicking HERE.

Please email Alexis at alexis(at)electradesigns(dot)net if you wish to order an economy cincher, or to be added to her standard, semi-custom or fully custom wait list. (She asked that her email address appear in the format above to reduce spam)!

Fuschia Chinese Satin Underbust Corset & Bra Set; Plus Size

This heavy duty plus sized underbust and ruffle bra set is made of fuschia chinese satin fabric. They are interlined with strong cotton duck canvas, and lined with soft, durable, brushed cotton twill. Alexis used 5/16" spiral steel bones in place of 1/4" bones for extra support. This is a heavy duty corset and bra.

Features:

  • heavy duty busk
  • added 3/8" flat steel bones
  • built in waist tape for reinforcement
  • eyelets are placed closer at the waist for additional waist control
  • two piece, heavy duty nickel plated brass eyelets with washer
  • trimmed with hand dyed venice lace
  • black bridal satin was used for the binding
  • corset has front modesty panel
  • corset features my unique back modesty panel design
  • modesty panel is suspended by the laces so it lies flat and positions itself when the corset is laced
  • corset can easily be cinched on without assistance
  • modesty panel is boned and bound, and is made of three layers of fabric
  • corset has built in loops for two pairs of removable garters (not shown)
  • includes 11 yards of double faced, strong polyester ribbon laces
  • matching ruffle bra is made out of the same materials as the corset
  • heavy duty with boning for added structure and support
  • 3/4" wide adjustable straps
  • laces up the back with two piece nickel plated brass eyelets
  • trimmed with hand dyed black venice lace
  • bound with black bridal satin
  • upper cups are covered with dense black satin ruffles
  • underwire push-up cups with removable padding on both the upper and lower cups; (the reason for the additional removable padding is because the client has hormonal fluctuations which cause her breasts to change sizes. this way she can add or remove padding to make the bra fit when her body changes)
  • bra laces up like a corset

This is one of my favorite styles, and I just adore the colors!

A Word About Self Lacing

So, you've read this hub and you are now truly convinced that a corset is for you! You purchase your favorite piece, get it home, take it out of it's beautiful packaging and then what? How in the blessed do you lace it up all by yourself?

For your convenience, I have included the below video to demonstrate a simple technique that you can use to self-lace your corset. All you need are two hands, two eyes (or maybe one will do) and a mirror! Once you practice this method, it should become second nature to you in no time!

Corsets are very fashionable, both in and out of the bedroom! Wearing one will afford any woman a heightened sensuality that cannot compare with any other experience. Empowering, seductive and fantastic looking on, you cannot go wrong with whatever style you choose to compliment your femininity!

I would like to thank Alexis Black for allowing me to use her pictures for this article!

Really enjoyed this hub, though I do feel obligated to bring up that the corset has not always been (and is now only arguably) empowering. The tradition of restricting women's bodies--which have historically been seen as unruly, needing containment, even dangerous--is one we must be conscious of, if and when we choose to wear the byproducts of that tradition.

That is in no way to say I didn't love your hub (or that women shouldn't wear corsets--only that we should do so with awareness). Just my feminist conscience pricking me.


djtphn1 profile image

djtphn1 8 years ago from Riverside County, California Author

You are so right. I did bring up some of those kind of issues in the history, but that would have been a good angle to bring up as well.....I tried to focus little on history, as i did not think people really would be interested in it.....but maybe they would have and maybe I should add to it....what do you think? Would that be appropriate?

I like the hub for what it is. If you wanted to do history, I'd do a new one, and link to it at the bottom. I think you're right that they might draw different audiences in initially, but once they're hooked, I'd bet you'd see some cross-traffic too!

I used to sell corsets, and I have to agree with Maddie, some people still think of them as archaic devices used to control women, or the most uncomfortable garment ever invented.

I love corsets and really don't get into all that, just their unique beauty and how they shape my body. I don't feel like anyone is trying to control me, that is for sure, when I wear one, however, everyone is different, I suppose, and I always respect others opinions.....my purpose for this hub was not to invoke negative thoughts or emotions, but to inspire beauty and that is why I presented these particular corsets and pictures...as I think they are beautiful......but thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read it.

I got here by accident...I swear! Seriously, a great hub: informative, well-written, and enjoyable to read. Nice work.

P.S. Could you turn those upside down pics the other way round? I almost dropped my computer!

Great article... have to agree on the Electras being dicinely made

I was lucky enough to get a custom queen of hearts corset off ebay in about 2000/01 from Alexis. It is still my favourite item of clothing ever.. many a cheaper corset has fallen apart since. (perhaps partially because i cherish it so much) its stood the test of time magnificently.

Amazing level of informative content.

You really do need a friend to help put on most corsets though! :)

Fantastic content!

Great information on the history of corsets and definition. Thanks

Just FYI, a lot of the info. on Victorian corsets is false, especially the part about having a waist smaller than your age. Maybe some of that would appear in extreme cases, but not every Victorian lady would tight-lace.

Yeah good hub, I'm certainly not against the subject but some of those ladies/girls unfortunately look way too thin... Were corsets not originally used to try put some shape into larger ladies from the 17/18 centuries?

Марк сидел перед ней на полке повыше его прикол был у нее во рту и она держалась руками за его задницу, Денис стоял рядом и тихонько подрачивал, дожидаясь своей очереди, Дашины хохотунчики болтались из стороны в сторону, Саня который веселил ее сзади держался за ее смешилку, длилось это пару минут потом он застонал и резкими мощными толчками вкачал в нее порцию варенья, аккуратно достал из порядком раздолбанного хохотища свой прикол и не глядя мне в глаза вышел из парной, сразу к ней пристроился Денис и продолжил долбить умору моей жены, прикол марка все время находился у Даши во рту, он только стонал и мял ее за хохотунчики, еще несколько минут я смотрел как ее смешиет Денис, потом и он заржал, и вынув прикол тоже вышел из парилки!

Вы знаете, я не случайно завел разговор о славе, взяв как метафору паровоз. Механику инерции и славы хорошо понимали деловые партнеры “Kiss” – менеджеры и директора пластиночной фирмы “Casablanca”. В это время начинается период переукомплектации и перепаковки уже известного, написанного группой “Kiss”. Выходит альбом “Alive II”, то есть “Концертный 2? или, как говорят в отечестве “Зальный 2?, записанный на выступлениях. А вслед за ним в 1978 альбом под названием “Double Platinum” (“Двойной платиновый”) – сборник их предыдущих хитов. Широкой публике всякие подробности были может и невдомек. Но вот в “Армии “Kiss”", которая тогда насчитывала тогда более 100.000 человек, внимательно следили за малейшими перемещениями четырех ее фельдмаршалов. В “Армии” началось легкое брожение. Задавались вопросом “что, мол, в пластинке нового? И зачем вообще ее выпускали?”. Причины на это видно были. В киссовском рок-н-ролльном паровозе наступила взаимная усталость металла. Все четверо участников: Джин, Пол, Эйс и Питер объявили о том, что они берут перерыв на год, и что каждый из них займется выпуском сольных проектов.
