Steampunk Corsets

Steampunk has a subgenre of clothing that is centered around merging science fiction, retro futuristic and Victorian style.

Steampunk merges the romantic view of the Victorian era and the elements of  the industrial revolution in Europe.

The design also has a post apocalyptic vibe to it. Steampunk is more than clothing, it is hairstyles, jewelry, body modifications and make up designs.

The more modern ideals will include varies t-shirts with different designs, and loose fit trousers like jeans with accessories like belts and gun holders.

Steampunk also blends elements of burlesque, vampire, fetishism, goth, and Lolita into their clothing.  

Corsets are a staple in a steampunk, the bulky yet feminine addition to the outfit that the corset adds is super desirable in the steampunk aesthetic.

Linking back into the Victorian style that steampunk had taken interpretation from, corsets were originally designed as a support garment to help assist the torso into the desired shape.

The desired shape at that time was a smaller waist, bigger bottom and larger, more defined breasts.

In the steampunk element, only the corset is worn on the top half of the body, the layering nature of the Victorians isn't influenced here.

Steampunk corsets are typically darker in colour and tend to have a lot of additions like belts and buckles.
