HISTORY OF CORSET

FIRST TIME THE CORSET WAS SEEN The earliest image of a corset was recorded in 2000 BC, the image is of a Crete Women, and the arScle of clothing that was worn was what we would perceive to be a corset. However it was worn as an outergarments. While typically the corset has been used as underclothes, there have been instances where it is used as outer garments. Corsets are sSll seen as outer garments in the naSonal dress of many European countries

EARLIEST FORM OF THE CORSET The earliest form of the corset, that was used, as it is present day, was the CoZee. The CoZee was a Sght elongated bodice that was worn under clothing. It was made up of sS linen and worn under bodice, as fashion evolved, so did the CoZee; it became Sghter and sSer to beZer serve the fashion of the Sme. Elizabethan fashion was famous for very sS bodices, thus in the 16th century whalebones began being used in corsets for the purpose of keeping its structure. It became the staple tool in the fashion as it gave a geometrically straight line in the bodice. They also began using an addiSve to the corset called the Busk, which was an arScial edge that was given to the bodice. The busk was typically made out of wood, horn, ivory, metal or whale bone, it was then carved and shaped into a thin paper knife shape and inserted into the Elizabethan bodice and was faceted and held into place by lace.The lace was used so that the Busk can easily be placed and removed and it was o`en used for special occasions and events.

16th to late 17th centuries The earliest corsets were called "payre of bodies" and were usually worn with a farthingale that held out the skirts in a sS cone. The payre of bodies, later called stays, turned the upper torso into a matching cone or cylinder. They had shoulder straps and ended in aps at the waist. They aZened the bust, and in so doing, pushed the breasts up. The emphasis of the stays was less on the smallness of the waist than on the contrast between the rigid atness of the bodice front and the curving tops of the breasts peeking over the top of the corset.

HISTORICAL CORSETS

18th century The predominant forms of stays in the 18th century was an inverted conical shape, o`en worn to create a contrast between a rigid quasi-cylindrical torso above the waist and heavy full skirts below. Primary purpose of 18th- century stays: was to raise and shape the breasts, Sghten the midri, support the back, improve posture to help a woman stand straight, with the shoulders down and back, and only slightly narrow the waist, creaSng a 'V' shaped upper torso over which the outer garment would be worn.

POPULARISATION OF CORSET

MADONNA

The Iconic Cone-Cupped Corset GaulSer and Madonnas platonic love for each other began with a corset. During her controversial 1990 AmibiSon Tour, Madonna donned the infamous cone-cupped corset designed by GaulSer, a corset that has not only cemented Madges reputaSon as the ercest singer in pop but also pumped the designers status to new heights.

Roughly a month later and 22 years a`er the rst cone-cupped corset Madonna sported a reinterpreted version of the cone bra during her MDNA tour. This Sme around, GaulSer played with the concept of masculinity and femininity and gave the corset a skeletal cage look.
