Best Bodices

A bodice is a very special kind of lingerie. Bodices are used as figure-enhancing lingerie and are therefore also considered shapewear. Nowadays there are flowing transitions between a classic underwear and a corsetry. The big difference lies in the degree of fixation. Small fat pads can easily be magically removed with a bodice.

Women’s fashion: Bodices Video Guide

Women who put on a corset are doing their stomach tissues some good. A bodice keeps the belly tight and provides for a better figure. If a bodice is put on under a pair of trousers, then nothing more is to be seen of a small belly. Especially women who have already given birth have the problem that the belly is not tight but tends to bulge slightly. A bodice can help here. When buying a bodice, however, you should always make sure that it has the right fit. It must not squeeze or pinch, but should gently push back the skin. Otherwise the muscles could cramp and it feels like you’re locked up. In earlier centuries bodices or corsets were tightly laced. This created a slender waist. The disadvantage of such a method was that the ladies of the world at that time had hardly any air to breathe. In addition, it can happen that an incorrect posture is adopted when the corset is too tight. Thus one has no use when wearing a bodice, but rather disadvantages. Corsets should therefore always be bought in the right size and ensure a comfortable wearing experience.

A lot of women don’t leave their homes without bodices. But even men who attach great importance to their appearance use a corset to get rid of a few pounds purely optically. Some bodices are even used in erotic fashion. Today, many corsetry fashions can also be found in wedding and traditional costume fashion. These corsages belong to the actual corsetry only in the broadest sense, since they differ somewhat from the originals. Current corsetry as underwear is primarily intended to be invisible. They are worn to bring the body into shape so that outerwear can slip slim and smoothly over it. All you can see is a fancy figure. For this reason, some bodices are seamless or discreetly decorated with decors or embroidery. Many women don’t want their little secret to be visible, but opt for bodices that are not visible under trousers, blouses or dresses. Bodices are the actual successors of the earlier breast bandages. Nowadays, modern corsetry does not require the use of chopsticks at all. Unless they’re corsets. But here, too, the rods are much more flexible than before and provide a pleasant hold

Corsets must not squeeze or pinch. They should be bought to fit. With the right bodice, the so-called hourglass figure can be made. A good corset should combine style, chic and comfort. Bodices are now available in all colours and sizes, so that everyone can quickly find the right model. The seams should be smooth and not protrude. Bodices with lace or embroidery look particularly pretty.
