Corsets come in all different shapes and styles. Having transitioned over the course of time, the shape of corsets has continued to develop. Now we have all of those different styles to choose from when purchasing a corset. Nowadays, no matter what our build or shape we can find the perfect corset. Women throughout history were not so lucky. They were not always given the luxury of choosing which corset best fit their bodies and were most often forced to wear the one particular design was employed during a certain time period. The two main styles of corsets are overbust and underbust. Naturally the overbust corset extends over the bust while the underbust corset stops above the rib cage. Some sub-types of corsets which are overbust in category are the Parisien Lady's Corset. This corset flowed from the 1850's with a tightly cinched waist and flowing, wide bust and waist. The same style was employed for teenage women during the time frame. During the 1860's the Parisien Lady's Corset made the transition to draw even more attention to the bust. This produced the Casati Corset. This one had a few more panels and gussets for those with a more distinct waist. Not soon after came the Paressense corset which was created for those of a larger build. This corset lacked the lace backing of normal corsets. Instead it had two belts that come around the waist and two side panels which were elasticized. Next was the Victorian corset with a wider waist but the same general pattern The Ceinture Greque was developed as an underbust corset that drew in tightly around the middle, For a more waist-cinching style, which was elaborated into the short underbust corset. The short underbust corset provided more comfort and support for those with a smaller bust. Giving support for the longer waist and the larger bust without pushing the bust so far up and together that it sat in the person's face the longer corset was developed. In the mid 1860's another underbust Long corset design was produced which was fit for slimmer figures who had broader backs and were seeking a narrow waist. The last of the designs from the late 1860's was the Waist cincher. It, of course, cinched a woman's waist, particularly designed for shorter women. Another design for short women was the short underbust corset which provided the same voluptuous look sought by all women for those with bigger busts and shorter waists.
