The corset is one of those clothing items that keeps getting resurrected as a fashion trend over the years, and for very good reason. Even though its roots go all the way back to the Elizabeth era, corsets have proven to be a versatile garment time and time again.
In the 1990s, they were often seen on the red carpet, worn by celebrities like Halle Berry, Britney Spears and Pamela Anderson. Cut to 30 years later, and stars such as Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid, Lizzo, Olivia Rodrigo, Megan Fox and Camila Cabello have donned the structured top on and off the red carpets. Not only has the return of ‘90s fashion helped bring the corset into modern-day closets but so has the popularity of shows like Bridgerton, Euphoria and The Great.
If you need any more proof of how versatile the corset top really is, take a look at how they’re worn in the aforementioned television series. Whether it’s Barbie Ferreira wearing one over a T-shirt in Euphoria season one, or the countless heaving bosoms in Bridgerton, there’s no arguing that this is one item that can span genres and centuries.
