Why wear corsets? Before we give you the reason, let us bore you with the brief history of corsets. A story of Catherine de Medici wife to King Henry II has been the most popular origin of corsets even though women in Crete have been wearing it years earlier. The story is that, Catherine banned people with “thick” in simplier term “fat” waist in court attendance during the 1550s. Thus people found solace in corsets. For nearly 350 years, women’s primary support was the corset with laces and stays made of whalebone or metal.

Reasons Why Wear Corsets

1. Costumes.

Corsets make great costumes. It has made regular appearances in Holloweens and Cosplay events. Have you ever attended ComiCon? More than 50% of the female Cosplayers are wearing one.

Corsets have also been the signature costume of Madonna. One of her iconic pieces is the cone corset. It was recently put on display in the French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier’s exhibit. The cone corset was worn by Madonna during her Ambition Tour.

2. Sexy.

There are different styles of corset but we could all agree that any style or cut, the sexiness that it exudes is a definite reason why wear corsets. It defines your bust, shapes your waistline and accentuates your hips, everything a woman needs in an outfit.

3. Posture.

The way the corsets are built can provide good support for your body especially around the lumbar area. This is the area where stress and weight are centered. Women with bigger bust are highly advised to regularly wear corsets.

4. Diet.

Why wear corsets? Well, did you know that there’s a diet named the Corset Diet? Basically, the dieters only have to wear corsets. The tight and hugging feeling of the corset would leave the dieter the impression that she is full and the stomach consequently reduces in size as the corset
is tight enough to squeeze the stomach. In effect, the dieter would lose weight. You will have to reasearch more about this if you want to go through this diet.

4 Tips for Your Maternity Clothes

    1. Jogging Pants. “But I’m not going to go jogging”, you say? True enough but you can still wear your gym clothes. The stretchable fabric of your jogging pants could accommodate your growing baby bump, maybe even up to the 2nd or earlier parts of the third trimester. Plus it will totally accentuate your other humps aka your butt. We don’t know about you, but there are a lot of women who will be proud to show their humps, front and back.
    2. Maxi Dress. Find a maxi dress as maternity clothes. It should have a good cut and patterns accentuating your curves in all the right areas. Get yourself a maxi dress with the empire cut and a V-neckline. The empire cut, would flatten the bulge a little bit while the V-neckline would show off your mama bust. Plus side is that dresses are totally hassle-free to wear.
    3. Little Black Dress. It’s every women’s must have even as maternity clothes. May it be daytime wear or evening wear, a little black dress is every woman’s fashion haven.
    4. Flat shoes or those with maximum of two-inches of heels. These are not maternity clothes but what outfit is complete without shoes? Huh? Go for ankle-cut instead of knee-high boots and you could also use some loafers. In short, hide your sky-high heels. The stress on the soles and the balls of your feet won’t do you any good. You can find the right flat shoes and could still look sharp and chic.

Just like in the movie “What to Expect When You’re Expecting”, pregnancy has a lot of ups and downs. But now that you are equipped with these fashion knowledge about maternity clothes, you can just expect a more fashionable and comfortable pregnancy.
