Most men and even some women have no idea what the difference is between a corset and a bustier. Is that a bad thing? Not at all. In fact, there really isn’t much of a difference when you are looking at the basic design. The main difference is that a bustier has cups like a bra and a corset does not. The bustier is a beautiful piece of lingerie. Most corsets can be worn as intimate apparel and as outerwear. A bustier is generally worn as only intimate apparel. Most bustiers also do not have shoulders straps attached to them, as well. When purchasing a busier, you will go according to bra cup size not S, M, or L like you would for a corset. This is a bra style top that generally goes to the hips or in some cases is cropped. Some manufacturers are now adding straps, but for the most part not. Some styles come with boning for that stiffness and extra support. Many also have detachable garters for those lovely sexy stockings. The whole idea of a bustier is to provide a sleek sexy shape to the waist with supported breast cups on top. A bustier is a sleeveless top that spans the bust to the waist (sometimes touching the hips or the top area of the butt) and it is worn either as lingerie or as outer clothing. It is form-fitting and it may sometimes have garters attached to it. Modern bustiers now have thin lacy straps but most bustiers are like tube tops.The bustier is such a beautiful piece of lingerie that can be worn by women of all sizes and shapes. It is a piece of lingerie that accuentates your curves and shows off that significant sex appeal you inspire both in the bedroom and out!
The great thing about the bustier is that it is a bra with a torso built into it. So there is absolutely no need to shy away from the strapless look. Even the largest of breasts will be held securely in place. A woman will not have to worry that her everyday movements will force the top down around her waist and not support her or she will fall out of it. In fact, most women prefer these to the mainstream strapless bra. The bustier can even be purchased with or without boning or lacing. The lacing can come on the front or the back of the bustier. Many bustiers that have back lacing also offer buttons or hooks in the front for convenience. You can use this sexy lingerie under all strapless outfits and know that you look great and feel awesome underneath, but still have the right support. There are also those fashion bustiers that are more similar to corsets so they can be worn as outerwear. These will still have the separate cups but they will consist of a thicker fabric and not provide the same restriction in the waist.
