１．History of Corset
Corsets have long been used on the European continent as a fashion item. In the beginning, corsets appeared as a protective device to keep warm and protect the lower back, and as time went by, they gradually became popular among the upper classes as underwear to show off the curves of the body.
In medieval Europe, the corset served as a brassiere. from the 16th century onward, it was transformed into women's underwear with whalebones or steel bones inside it to lift women's breasts higher and emphasize the contrast with the slenderness of the waist. To further emphasize this contrast, a combination with pannier appeared in the early 18th century and was worn with court dress until the French Revolution.
In the 19th century, corsets began to become commonplace, and not only upper- and middle-class women but also working-class women began to wear them. The pursuit of the "ideal 42 centimeters" was also part of the trend, and women became obsessed with the idea of narrowing their waists while enduring various negative effects on their health.
２．Abolition and Revival of the Corset
Entered society. After World War I, through the efforts of great designers such as Paul Poiret and Coco Chanel, the corset, which had caged women's bodies , was abandoned and replaced by a new type of underwear, the bra. This led to the corset, which had dominated for so long, becoming less and less present in women's fashion.
However, the natural curvature of the waist is also a form of feminine beauty.Therefore, the corset, as a symbol of gender and feminine beauty, began a revival as a fashion item in the 1960s.
