A corset is a garment worn to mold and shape the torso to emphasizes a curvy figure, by reducing the waist and exaggerating the bust and hips. An overbust corset encloses the torso, extending from just under the arms to the hips. An underbust corset begins just under the breasts and extends down to the hips. We also have very unique corset dress for the more elegant look.
A bodice, historically, is an article of clothing for women covering the body from the neck to the waist. Generally bodices were unboned and didn't shape the torso like a corset because they were historically designed to be worn over a corset. We carry arrr boned bodice because it's easier to not wear so many layers, this way ye have the bodice look and the corset shape! Our comfort bodice is more like the period version. The bodice or corset is the most important piece of a wench's outfit. Buy this item first, then get everything else to match it.
