The bustier is very similar to the basque, a style we’ve written about on our blog before (the boneless basque and the cupless basque). However the bustier it’s shorter as it only reaches down to the waist. It’s designed to push the breasts upwards like a push-up bra and also to shape the waist. The lacqué bustier is made from a stretchy, comfortable fabric, making it stylish and practical alternative to the basque or corset.
In general, bustiers are less rigid than corsets and basque. They typically do not have the sturdy boning. A bustier can still give good definition to your shape and provide the necessary support, but it won’t be as binding or restricting. For this reason bustiers are becoming a very popular option both as lingerie and everyday outerwear. When you combine the comfort of this more practical style with the silky, gorgeous and breathable texture of the laqué fabric, you end up with a winning fashion combination!
You may be wondering how something as seriously sexy as a laqué bustier can translate from the bedroom to everyday outerwear. It’s easy! Because the bustier only goes down to the waist, you can easily pair it with a flirty miniskirt or a pair of skinny jeans. And if you’ve sized it properly you’ll find that well-fitting bustier can create a delightfully slimming effect on your waistline. And the sexy shiny ‘latex-look’ of the laqué fabric can also enhance the body-shaping effect of the bustier.
So if you’re looking for a sexy yet comfortable item that works in the bedroom and also for a hot night out, the laqué bustier is an excellent choice. The fabric feels wonderful against the skin and it is stretchy and breathable, a combination you don’t often find in the lingerie department.
