									If you want to make the most of your physique, nothing works better than a corset, a
cinching garment that is worn around the middle torso of the body to accent the shape
and contour of the bust and waist. This undergarment has been a part of women's
wardrobe for hundreds of years with its origins traced to England. While the corset
was used before for restrain now it is used for giving better shape and control to the
woman's body. The corset has come a long way from the days it was used to make and
keep the woman's body restrained and tiny by tying it in under great pressure to what
it is today, comfortable and body shape enhancer. While the corsets of today are
considered an essential piece of sexy lingerie, that was not always the case. You can
find images of corseted women from the ancient civilizations of Crete, Egypt, Rome
and Greece. During this period of time, women wore corsets for physical support
during strenuous activities such as gymnastics and bullfighting. For the women in
Greece, the corset was called a "zona," while on the island of Crete the women used
heavy rings around their waists and short, bolero-style jackets to support their breasts.
However in Rome, a tightly laced corset was a status symbol, and Egyptian women
used this type of garment as a part of their daily dress.

The history of corsets is indeed fascinating; today there is an entire lifestyle culture
built around the women who wear them and the men who adore them. Now there are
many different varieties of corsets that are simply amazing; corsets are made from
every type of material and for every type of body sizes.

Many of the style of corsets that you find in sexy lingerie collections have their
beginnings in the 13th and 14th centuries, when dresses called "kirtles" were designed
with corseted lacing to form the garments closer to the body, replaced the free flowing
style. The stiff fabrics used today to form a trim silhouette as a separate undergarment,
were taken from these dress designs. The corset today is more used by women who
want to look gorgeous and sexy. You will find not only body control corsets in the
market but also leather corsets which are a great sex-enhancing garment. Corsets have
always been part of the women's attire. In the 15-18th century it was meant to make
the body of he woman flattish by subduing the swelling of the breasts and the
buttocks; then it went into controlling the figure to give it a hour-glass look and in the
end it was used to make the stomach flat and give support to the stockings.
