Corsets.

In the early 16th century, corsets became the new obsession for girls of all ages. Victorian era for girls was all about a tight fitted corset. Introduced by the wife of King Henry II, the corsets have been in fashion since 350 years.
For those who are unknown to the term corsets, my definition for it would be- A really tight fitted bodice which was earlier accepted traditionally but now is widely chosen in the fashion world.
Here's the thing about corsets. They are made from different cloth materials such as satin, silk, net and the most common ones are made from lace. Excluding the medical issues, if seen fashionably, a corset is the best possible pick. Of course you cannot just leave your house wearing a short corset. That would make you look weird and if you're residing in India, then you're gonna have a tough time for quite long.

Advantages:
1. If you're up for a small and slender waist along with a curvy body, get ready to purchase a tight lace corset.
2. If in the form of a gown, a corset will make you look thin and in shape.
3. Corsets give a firm grip to your back.
4. Since corsets are available in all types, you will find a new tube corset or a sleeveless one to go perfectly with your shorts. In fact in India, corsets are seen on weddings by mix and matching them with the long skirts.
5. There are also corset dresses which would give you a different look. The normal corsets are short but the corset dresses are till the legs.

Disadvantages:
1. Corsets hamper movement. You cannot expect yourself to be dancing around wearing a tight fitted corset.
2. Once the waist size is reduced, larger size can be attained with many difficulties. Thus, if you're planning on wearing a corset to shorten the waist size, do remember that the effects will be permanent.
3. You can have severe health issues with regard to tight corsets as some of the consequences can be- deformation of liver and stomach.
4. Can't be worn on a daily basis.
5. If you're a foodie, you can't even think of going out wearing a corset to eat in loads.

A corset has both good and bad things to look upon. So before purchasing one, do look at both the sides.
