Designer Vikram Phadnis said in an interviewed with Times of India in April 2014 that the "modern silhouette "for the Indian bride has changed a lot. He also mentioned that bridal wear in India has become bolder, with brides teaming corsets and skirts with dupattas (Indian stoles) for an enhanced look. The Indian bridal wear has indeed caught up with the West's fascination with corsets for weddings because they simply are a memorable style statement.
Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor was recently in news when she was spotted wearing one of the tightest corset dresses designed ever. She was attending an event to unveil the latest make-up collection of L'Oreal Paris for the Festival de Cannes 2014. Far from being cosy, the dress was so tight fitting that it would leave you wondering whether Sonam was literally sewn into the dress. She paired the dress with ankle-strap pumps and was looking gorgeous as ever.
Welcome to the world of corsets and congratulations on your first purchase. Even if you have not bought the corset as yet, you can read about how to take care of this amazing apparel.
As a first timer, open bust corsets are perfect for you. They are easy to maintain and wear. And they look fabulous. So, get ready to receive complements no matter where you go.
Gone are the days when only celebrities like Madonna, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry were seen wearing corsets. These are now a rage among many women in various walks of life. Corsets are known to reduce the waistline, if worn daily for long periods. No wonder that this fashionable garment has become so popular.
In recent times, corsets have been more popular than you think and it has been happening before people have realized it. Remember Aishwariya Rai Bachchan in Dhoom 2, dancing, "Crazy Kiya Re" wearing a black leather corset? It was a movie that was a fashion statement in Indian cinema, released in the year 2006. It has been 7 years since then and we have yet not realized that it is a part of the fashionable Indian woman than we realize. A lot of celebrities can be seen wearing bodices replacing the typical blouse, when it comes to wearing a sari. But this is just not convincing enough for you to wear a corset as an Indian woman. We will give you more reasons.
