The history of the women’s corset

This item of women’s wardrobe has a long history. In general, the first corsets were wide belts, which were worn on the island of Crete in ancient times by both women and men. During Gothic times, complex metal and wooden structures appeared, which were sewn into the dress, fastened with bolts and brought certain torment to their owners. In the fifteenth century, at the insistence of the Catholic Church, women had to literally flatten their breasts so as not to fog men’s minds. In the 17th century, the Great French Revolution literally “banned” corsets, declaring them aristocratic relics. However, this did not last long, and by the beginning of the eighteenth century corsets returned in a new form. A modern underwear corset has it waist tightening function and serves more as an ‘objet d’art’.
