Would you wear a corset?

When I hear the word corset, the first word that comes to mind isn’t usually Gaultier or Dior. Oh, but was I wrong Women’s Wear Daily profiles Mr. Pearl corset maker to Gaultier, Dior, and the fabulous Dita Von Teese. Mr. Pearl stated “To me, a corseted body, with the shape of the indentation at the waist, is beauty in extreme; it represents absolute femininity.”
I guess I agree, as long as it’s done correctly, I mean this trend requires some serious investing. Please spare us and don’t buy a corset from Victoria’s Secret, or H&M, and attempt to wear it as Street Style. That would be tragic, but I mean a fucking corset is not on the top of my list of things to buy.
The look can be head turning if don’t subtly and on the right occasion, but the corset made of cheap satin and lace worn in the wrong situation could be tragic.
