One part medieval and two parts glamour make the corset dress sizzle for spring.
Although the style is deeply rooted in the past, it has a distinctly modern edge. Best of all, the corset style dress works well on most any body type.
A smaller-framed woman looks just right in a corset dress made of cotton or linen. The lines of the dress emphasize the waist and the cut naturally enhances the bust.
Choose a corset dress made of stretchy material if you are well endowed. This fabric helps to ensure a perfect fit, and it highlights an hourglass figure.
Size is inconsequential. A corset dress is sure to steal the show so wear it with confidence.
