Corsets have a very vivid history and dates back to the 1500s, when the English and Italian women used it to look beautiful and have a perfect hour-glass figure. They used tight corsets in order to flatten the middle part of their bodies so that they could fit easily in the dresses of those eras.
Another use of a corset was to either push up the breasts to form a fuller figure or flatten the breasts as according to the fashion of respective eras. Corsets were made popular in the 1940s and 1950s, thanks to the craze of the hourglass figure, which had a much narrower waistline and big and protruding breasts and hips.
