Plus Size Corsets, Basques and Bustiers from Sexy Plus, UK.
Ladies if you are looking to show off your off your hourglass figure why not treat yourself to a sexy plus size corset, bustier or basque?
A sexy plus size corset basque or bustier can either give you gentle shaping with a lightweight garment or perhaps a corset with boning is what you are looking for.

Just to avoid any confusion, a corset goes from just above your bust and down to just above your hips. A really good quality corset, such as those from Shirley of Hollywood or Dominique will also tend to be fully boned in order to cinch you in at the waist and therefore should give you a great hourglass shape but still be comfortable enough to wear for a lengthy period.
Because of this in the past a corset would be more functional than attractive. However that is not the case today as corsets come in many and varied colours and styles.
By its very nature a corset is a garment designed to give you shape and support and therefore is usually made of jacquard or satin. But this also means that both leather and PVC make great corsets as those materials tend to be very supportive and shaping.
This means that a strapless corset is absolutely ideal to be worn under an off the shoulder or strapless wedding dress.
A basque on the other hand whilst being similar to a corset is slightly different in that it usually fastens at the front. A corset of course tends to fasten at the back, usually with a lace up but also sometimes with a hook and eye closure. More importantly a basque generally will not have such strong boning, so whilst it will give you some shape the support and control that it provides will not be as much as that offered by a corset.
So a strapless basque is very good for a special occasion or evening out perhaps but is maybe not the best choice if you are looking for support all day long.
A bustier is far more like an everyday item of lingerie that can be worn all day long at work or in the office. It goes from just above your bust and down to your waist or ribs. A bustier is used typically to very gently shape your waist and will not have boning, but they are also absolutely brilliant for enhancing your cleavage by pushing up your bust.
