Corset is a sort of underwear usually worn very close to the body and is usually tightened with laces. The main function of corsets is to shape the woman's figure (mainly the bust and hips), so they cover the body from the breasts to the hips. The greater number of corsets has four or more adjustable garter straps specially designed for supporting the stockings.
