Corset/Bustier

This very feminine garment covers the body from breast to waist. Very often they have built in bra cups and come in many style variations. They vary in length (some sit above the hip bone and some are cut lower), and often have fixed or detachable suspender straps for attaching stockings. They fasten with hooks and eyes, lace up with ribbon or have a delicate zipper as a closer.   Some have vertical boning (flexible reinforcement) sewn into the garment which gives it a firmer structure providing great body shaping for the wearer.  Generally a bustier doesn’t have built in bra cups.

Bodysuit

A beautiful one-piece garment usually made from lace – essentially it’s a camisole with a sexy brief all in one.  Quite often bodysuits will have built in underwire cups.
