Corset Inspo: Your Guide To Styling Underbusts And Waspies 

Corset Inspo: Your Guide To Styling Underbusts And Waspies 

Underbusts and waspies are possibly one of the easiest accessories to help you spice up any OOTD, and we’re about to show you just that. 

If you’re not familiar with them already, underbusts and waspies vary from the overbust corset as they sit just under the bust and are usually paired over tops or dresses, or as a waist-cinching addition to any lingerie look. 

But this doesn’t make them any less important than their overbust counterparts. In fact, underbusts and waspies can be an incredibly versatile and glamorous addition to almost any outfit, and are a super un-intimidating way to delve into the world of corsetry.
