The experience of wearing a corset is quite unlike that of any other garment, transforming your body to a greater degree than any other item of clothing. If it leaves you breathless, it’s all worth it.

The experience of wearing a corset is quite unlike that of any other garment, transforming your body to a greater degree than any other item of clothing. If it leaves you breathless, it’s all worth it.

I feel different when wearing a corset, and I don’t just mean the physical aspect. I’m talking particularly about the emotional difference; there’s something about the way it holds you in, forcing a certain posture, it gives you a confidence and seductive strength. Even the very act of putting on a corset—something you certainly can’t do in a rush—only adds to the feeling of purpose. A bit like when you dress for a special event, you feel a sense of occasion, more so than just flinging on a bra and brief.

Maybe because I don’t wear corsets very often, when I do it feels unique and exciting; an adrenaline rush accompanying the tightening of those laces, a buzz through my body when I hear the boned fabric creak. The word “empowering” has become so overused, but when it comes to a corset the description is perfect. The same is true for much of those more edgy, fetish-inspired and restraint-wear pieces: while on the one hand we are giving ourselves over to the clothing, perhaps admitting to a submissive side, the truth is that we are flaunting our sexuality. Flirting with a bit of danger with those bondage connotations, we are provoking and asking for a reaction. You can’t be a wallflower or shrinking violet while wearing a full length leather leg harness! Wearing such a piece you almost have no option but to be confident and bold. And once you start acting strong and bold, before you know it you don’t need to pretend any more… you find yourself actually being and behaving with strength and courage.

It’s an unexpected, intoxicating aspect of clothing originally designed to restrain the wearer, that it has quite the opposite effect emotionally; rather than restrain, these are garments which unleash our inner dark side.
