The corset dates back to the early 1900s. Women wore these bodices in the Edwardian and Victorian era. The narrow waisted look in fashion later transitioned to the slim silhouette by the 1920s. Manufacturers began to create the elasticized corsets as supportive undergarments for women. By the 1930s, there was a greater interest in small silhouettes with an emphasis on the hourglass figure. By the 1950s and 1960s, most women were wearing foundation garments underneath their clothes. In the 1970s and 1980s, corsets became popular as an outerwear trend. They were designed to flatten the belly and raise the bosom.
Corsets made a comeback in the 2000s with a more satin and ribboned look. By 2015, the corselette began to appear on the spring/summer runway shows. The most recent revival of these supportive garments has been inspired by the cottage core aesthetic, among other styles.
