Underbust Corsets

If you are a fan of vintage, burlesque or pin-up style you will love an underbust corset.

An underbust corset is generally worn under a dress and can help achieve a smooth silhouette and pull in your waist.  This style is popular with brides under their gown as it generally has a lower back than a traditional overbust corset.  The underbust corset will sit under the bust and wrap around your waist.
