The corset first became popular in sixteenth-century Europe and reached the zenith of its popularity in the Victorian era. The corset has been an important article of clothing for several centuries. Corsets come in many types, including half-cup, double boned, underbust and full Victorian. They also come in a variety of fasteners, such as lace up, hook eye, steel busks and zippers. A steel-reinforced corset with laces allows for the best figure-shaping. Popularity of bridal bras and corsets is increasing because they offer a bride style, beauty, sexiness and body shaping. Here is a short retrospect of top 8 corsets, we hope it will help you to choose the best fitting corset for your wedding.
Double Boned corset: the double boning on these corsets cinches the waist drastically making them great for waist training. Also, they are much heavier and stiffer than normal. These corsets come in a variety of cup styles, but the most popular are full-cup.

Underbust Victorian corset: it is laced up tight and offer the support to the midsection under the wedding dress. A strapless bra is needed as well, because Underbust Corsets give no support for the breasts.
