The word basque is a French term for a corset-style undergarment that covers from the chest to the waistline. It has a contoured fit that extends past the waist over the hip, somewhat similar to a traditional corset but without the compression. The boneless basque offers the traditional basque shape without the framed definition of boning, creating a smooth supportive garment that accentuates the hourglass shape.
A basque is typically worn as an undergarment, but as you might guess we think something as exquisite as this should be on display. Whether it’s the corselette style, which focuses attention on the hips and buttocks, or the merry widow style, which focuses attention on the upper torso, the basque is a sensual and seductive fashion statement. The boneless basque goes a step further by creating a smooth, beautiful outer wrapping for the body that appeals to both the eyes and the hands.
A basque is designed to smooth the entire waistline, so the choice of fabric is important. When choosing a boneless basque, you may want to select a stretchy fabric that will accentuate the curves of your body without restricting movement. Of course that depends on what you are planning to get up to in your basque! If you do plan to wear it underneath your clothing, another advantage of the boneless basque is that it will not show any seams. This can create a delightful surprise for your partner as it can be worn undetected underneath a variety of clothing.
Wearing a basque is an excellent way to flatter a woman’s shape, and the boneless basque offers a variation that is less restrictive. Whether it’s worn underneath regular clothing or on its own (which we recommend), it’s a versatile piece that can be worn and appreciated in as many ways as suit your imagination. Take a look at the Nirina Black Basque (Boneless), a unique variation made of stretchy laqué with an eye-catching criss-cross in the front and rear.
