How to wear your corset as outerwear.
Some of the pieces I own are just too beautiful to wear as just an undergarment. Handcrafted lace work, silk embroidery, feathers... How can you not show off these details? This is where underwear can, and should, become outerwear. This post will show you how to convert your corsets into fashion pieces without making them or you look out of place.
The following images are NOT what I'm talking about when I mention corsets as outerwear.
Not that I don't love a classic black corset or that I don't ADORE Jean Paul Gaultier's work (I would almost give up an arm to own one of his lingerie pieces) It's just that this is not the image I see when I picture corsets as outerwear. I'm thinking of a more subtle, classy style.
# Tips on how to wear your Corsets and Bustiers
You can turn your corset into the main feature piece of your outfit. Under-dress the rest of your attire as the undergarment itself will create the attention. Make sure that it's covered or at least the bust section is. If so, you can also call your corset a top and treat it as such.
|High-waisted Pant: Dressy|
If you don't want to stand out too much, then team it with a pair of high waisted pants to make your corset not look like a separate. Turn it into a jumpsuit instead.
|High-waisted pant: Casual|
|Man style suit|
A corset looks spectacular under a man style suit or jacket, adding a feminine touch to an androgynous look. Super hot.
|High-waisted pencil skirt|
Team it with a high waisted pencil skirt in the same colour for the look of a dress or go for a contrast to make it really pop.
|Mini skirt Casual|
|Bustier over T-shirt|
|Corset over a dress|
Shorter style bustiers can also be worn over the top of a dress or teamed up with a high waisted pant, skirt or short, showing off just a dash of skin.

Just be careful when you sit down so you don't get that pinched skin coming through the midriff of your outfit.

If you're afraid your bust is going to pop out of your corset then place some double sided tape to the inside top part of the cup and push down onto your skin. It works wonders to stop exposing too much on a night out.
