What Is The Difference Between A Corset And Bustier? A bustier and corset share similar characteristics, but the real difference lies in the intent of the garment.
• Corsets are usually intended to give a smooth line from the cinched-in waist to the bust with no accommodation for the bust. It is typically one piece from bottom to top.
• Bustiers are intended to emphasize women’s curves and tend to push “the girls” up and together to create cleavage. You’ll often find bustiers with built-in cups to facilitate the definition of the bust. The cups resemble a modern-day bra, which is meant to boost cleavage.
What Are the Similarities Between a Corset and Bustier? Even though the intent for use is different, corsets and bustiers have very similar characteristics.
• Both of these undergarments are strapless bras that have an attached bodice that is usually boned.
• They help to accentuate your waistline and smoothe any unwanted lines from your stomach.
• They both also typically fasten at the front with hooks and eyes and lace up the back. Although, modern-day corsets and bustiers have a variety of different closures.
When To Wear A Corset Or Bustier:
• On Your Wedding Day. If your wedding dress is strapless, opt for a long-line bra, corset top or bustier. These waist cinchers help to accentuate your waist and smoothe any unwanted lines from your tummy. If you want a little added boost, a push-up corset or bustier is a good choice.
• On Your Wedding Night. A halter bustier or sexy corset and panty set with a cut-out peek-a-boo detail such as a crotchless panty and garter belt are sure to make your night unforgettable (excuse our blushing)!
• On Your Honeymoon. Turn up the (paradise) heat with a matching sexy lingerie set like a mesh or lace bustier and garter skirt set. Velvet and faux leather styles are perfect for a steamy vacay. You could also try styles with delicate satin and see-through panels—they’re sheer genius.
