Over and Under The Corset

Throughout history the beloved corset has been an iconic piece of clothing, constantly evolving as fashion trends have emerged. Women from around the globe have used corsets to alter their appearance and create a fashion statement.

Still hugely popular in Gothic fashion the desired effect of corsets is to slim the body and give you a fashionable silhouette while emphasizing a voluptuous figure.

The Gothic Shop has a spectacular selection of overbust and underbust corsets and here are our a few of our favourites:

A gorgeous Black Satin Underbust Corset with steel-boning and metal clasp busk to the front, and elegant cord lacing up the back will give you a near perfect frame.

Check out our Black scroll brocade longlined underbust corset, this tightlacing waspie creates amazing shape, with brocade trim along the seams and black satin pleated frill along the lower edge for a feminine finish.

One corset we can't live without is this Burgundy-red Tafetta Silk Gothic Corset. It is steel-boned with black frill trimming around the top and bottom of the corset and a black ribbon bow. This breath-taking creation has silver clasps to the front and cord laced back with modesty panel.

We also adore this Dark Purple Taffeta Silk Gothic Corset with pleated black frill around the top and bottom of the corset and a delicate black ribbon bow. 

Or to complement a slightly fuller figure this Black Brocade Underbust Corset will show off your curves in all the right places, so grab it now while stocks last.
