Corsets gained momentum in the 18th century when women wore these waist-clinching, cage-like belts on their ensemble. The idea was to achieve that tiny waist illusion, but it wasn’t the most comfortable outfit for women back then. Thanks to the leading ladies of Bollywood, who have revived the corsets but in a more functional, and comfortable way.
Deepika Padukone wore a tiny black corset on her signature white shirt, creating an unusual look that you can easily imitate. Alia Bhatt opted for a similar styling strategy, but her choice of corset was a little more modern, with an added frill. Janhvi Kapoor recently wore a hybrid attire that was part shirt and part corset, blurring the line between business and pleasure.
