boning whereas most bustier tops are designed with flexible boning. Corsets are also longer than most bustier tops, which usually extend down to your waist but not all the way down to your hips like many corsets.
While corsets are designed specifically to slim your midsection and may or may not provide any support for your bust, bustier tops focus on offering lift, shaping, and support for your bust. Bustier tops are designed with built-in moulded bra cups that are lined and padded to provide support, lift, and shaping for your bust.
In some ways, bustier tops are like a modernized version of the classic corset. They share the same classic and classy style, but they are more comfortable, less restrictive, and much more versatile than traditional corsets.
How to Wear a Bustier Top
For many women, a bustier top is an unfamiliar style. That’s part of what makes bustier tops exciting to wear. A bustier top can instantly spice up your existing at-home lingerie collection, and it doesn’t have to be intimidating to style. Bustier tops are actually very simple to style and wear.
You can pair a bustier top with virtually any lingerie bottoms—or even wear it alone with nothing on the bottom for an ultra-sexy and scandalous look. Consider pairing a bustier top with high-waisted thong panties to emphasize the slimness of your waistline and show off the sexy curves of your backside.
You can also layer a bustier top underneath a teddy, babydoll, chemise, or lingerie robe to make the process of undressing—or getting undressed by your partner—in the bedroom a little more exciting for both people involved.
Interestingly enough, bustier tops have also gained ground recently as stylish tops for everyday wear. Bustier tops are trendy, flattering, and are designed to show off your figure. When paired with the right bottoms and accessories, a bustier top can serve as a flattering foundation for any on-trend everyday look. Of course, the skimpy style of bustier tops limits where they are appropriate to be worn. However, pairing a semi-modest bustier top with casual bottoms like high-waisted distressed jeans can help you create a glamorous, one-of-a-kind look that is equal parts edgy and elegant with plenty of feminine flair.
