As we readapt to being out and about and embrace our former social habits, corset inspired tops are cropping up all over runways, the high street and our Instagram feeds. It’s no surprise that people are leaning towards the allure of the romantic and sultry silhouette after a year and a half of being locked in at home in nothing but sweats and loose-fitting nap dresses. There’s a sense of charm and poise in the garment that was recently brought back by Netflix’s hit series Bridgerton.

What was once originally used to uncomfortably cinch the waist and enhance a woman’s curves has evolved into a surprisingly versatile garment that can be dressed for both day and night. Today’s iterations are undoubtedly softer, more breathable and flexible than those worn in the Regency and Victorian era. The modern-day versions do a great job at sculpting the silhouette without constricting the body.

Gen Z stars from pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo to actors Ananya Pandey and Jahnvi Kapoor have been spotted sporting corsetry. Corsets also make a great layering option. Wear it with a thin bodysuit underneath or layer it over a button down like Deepika Padukone. Megan Fox and Dakota Johnson make a case for lingerie on the red carpet. The former chose a Barbie pink satin bustier with matching pants, top paired with black high-waisted leather pants and pumps.


As demonstrated by countless celebrities, you can pair a corset top with everything from baggy jeans to a matching mini skirt and even shorts. If you’re feeling brave, opt for low-waist bottoms that are gradually making a comeback. Don’t be afraid to mix bright colors and fun textures.

Whether you’re looking for a classic vintage silhouette or a more laid back, modern-day version, there’s a version for everybody. Here’s our pick of the best corset tops you can add to your cart before Bridgerton returns for season two.
