What is the difference between a Bustier and Corset ? The difference is subtle and if you don’t know what your looking for you may miss it.
The bustier and the corset share similar characteristics. They are closely fitted to the body and are usually boned. Both corsets and bustiers usually fasten at the front with hooks and eyes or a busk, and they lace up the back. However, the real difference between a bustier and a corset lies in the intent of the garment. Corsets, which were worn in Victorian times, were usually intended to give a smooth line from the cinched-in waist to the bust. There was usually no accommodation for the bust, and the garment was all one piece from bottom to top.
Bustiers, on the other hand, are intended to emphasize a lady’s curves, and tend to push the breasts up and together to create cleavage. Often the bustier has cup-shapes built in to the top part of the garment to facilitate definition of the bust, and the curved lines were more desirable than the smooth lines of a corset. The cups resembled the modern day bra, which also is meant to “boost” cleavage.
Keeping this in mind, when you buy a corset or bustier, it depends which part of the body your trying to accentuate. No matter which part of your body your trying to accent the choice really comes down to personal preference.
