For Aesthetic or Medical Purposes

Health

A corset is a garment worn to hold and train the torso into a desired shape for aesthetic or medical purposes (either for the duration of wearing it or for a more lasting effect). Both men and women are known to wear corsets throughout history, though this item was for many years an integral part of women’s wardrobes.

People with spinal problems, such as scoliosis, or with internal injuries, may be fitted with a form of corset to immobilize and protect the torso. Supportive and corrective corsets can be made for those with moderate to severe scoliosis or lordosis, or for those with back pain who need the support of a properly fitted corset. Artist Andy Warhol was shot in 1968 and never fully recovered; he wore a corset for the rest of his life.
