The waist belt, as famously known as the corset belt or waist cincher, is believed to be associated with the goal of slimming down the waist or emphasizing a lady's figure---like some kind of curvy girl miracle invention.
These belts are also believed to have been in fashion and trendy in the earlier years. But this blog right here, is to broaden conservative thinking and zero in on waist belts as a one all-important fashion accessory that should be in every lady's closet.
From corsets, to waist cinchers to waist belts...let's take a trip down history-lane.
Corsets were worn by women – and sometimes men – in the Western world from the 16th to the early 20th century.
Available in a wide variety of price points, they were worn by upper and middle-class women and, increasingly, by working-class women as well.
They evolved from close-fitting sleeveless corsets to undergarments made of whalebone, and then steel, that encircled the ribs and compressed the natural waist.
Waist cinchers and waspies from the 1980s are a type of wide, laced belts with elastic fabric and soft plastic stiffeners. They were designed to flatter the abdominal area and solely support the waist.
These are the RISING STARS. Waist belts exist in the NAME of FASHION. Just like the corsets and waist cinchers, they are meant to create the illusion of smaller waists without being extreme.
Unlike the former, they offer comfortability and do not try to over deliver. They are fashionable enough to wear out without looking like you live in the 30's or you’re going to do some heavy weight lifting.
