Pick of the Week: The Ivory Corset
The Marshall half-corset
What We Like: The Marshall half-corset from Straps & Strings.
Why We Like It: Pristine white may be the colour of virginal love, but when fashioned into a classic French corset, it evokes a mixed feel of desire and lust. And that is precisely what we felt on spotting this vintage half-corset at Straps & Strings.
The corset has been constructed in satin and finished with lace. Its twin cups are lightly padded and take after the balconette. But it’s the straps that add the elements of playfulness. They let you wear the corset as an halter and a cross-back. And on days you’re feeling especially sexy, we suggest you go strapless.
(The Marshall half-corset is available at strapsandstrings.com, priced at Rs 3509)
