Bring the bedroom to the ballroom with a corset-style dress

"Long gone are the days when women would stuff themselves into a button-down corset just to run to the market. Still, ladies who want to embrace this sultry style may be in luck.

Corsets, garments that promote a much-desired hourglass figure, are making a serious comeback at the moment. And, while any woman can don this look in the boudoir, this design is slowly inspiring formal dresses.

Amber Heard, actress and model, recently stepped out in a striking example of this sexy style. The beauty was dressed in a white, strapless, knee-length number that featured a corset bodice. The piece allowed the starlet to embrace her feminine and vixen sides, all at once.

Believe it or not, corsets can also be worn as a woman walks down the aisle. Brides who are daring can don the piece and complement it with a shawl or shrug as they say their "I Dos." Those who want to show off some skin can let loose at the reception and sport the saucy style loud and proud."


  1. I think sometimes these styles create a waist where there might not have been one - and make a torso seem longer than it really is. Thanks for showing these.

  2. These dresses are really nice. Are there any more designs?
