Chic Corsets for Your Winter Wardrobe

There are a million and one things about corsets that folk love, most notably the figure it gives. After all, us girls have been wearing them for centuries. 

Strapping on a corset will give anyone an instant hourglass figure (or something close to it) as well as looking tres chic. One can expect a great deal of work and tailoring to go into even the most basic of corsets. This fitted piece will pull in and accentuate in all the right places, from the more heavy duty waist training corsets to the elegantly tight 'Waspies'. Steel boned or lighter, corsets at The Gothic Shop will go the distance. Superb style statements for the everyday or for special nights out, here are a few examples that demonstrate just why every girl needs one:

Corsets for the most part are dramatic in nature: Strong, figure flattering and not for the faint of heart. With party season just around the corner, why not make a feature of your corset? Not only will it be slimming to the waistline, it can also make a glam style statement. The C-Lock King Gold Brocade Underbust is a seriously elegant corset. Invited to a Christmas do this year? You really will be the belle of the ball in this dainty number! Heavy duty with steampunk accents, try teaming the gold brocade and studs with something feminine and floaty for a really unique look. This design also comes in an overbust version.
