Corselettes and Merry Widow Basques are the secret under the best dressed vintage fashionistas (and red carpet celebrities too!) They shape from bust to hip for the smoothest line under dresses. Our Corselette finishes low on the hip for wearing under wiggle dresses while the Merry Widow finishes higher on the hip and has detachable shoulder straps for creating that hourglass Dior 'New Look'.
