Your Guide for Spookily Sexy Costumes
Halloween is around the corner, and if you've got any big party plans, you'll want to look hot! It's that special time of year when you can go all-out with your party attire, get a little flirty and show off your figure.
Skip the poor-fitting attire from the costume shop and build a fabulously sexy costume using a corset!
Here are five ways you can use corsets to put together endless costume ideas:
1. Corset Over a Blouse
Find a soft, pretty blouse and put a lacy corset over the top. You'll look like a saloon girl in a snap. To look like an authentic lady of the Old West, wear a flowing or lacy skirt. For a more modern sexy cowgirl look, wear with skinny jeans and cowboy boots. Be sure that the corset is long enough to cover the top of your pants or skirt.
The Classic Curves Lace Overbust Corset Set By Hourglass Angel is a great option for this costume style.
2. Vintage Styles
You can wear any vintage style like Marilyn Monroe or 1960s Mad Men-inspired housewife and have the perfect hourglass shape to pull it off. A lot of older styles were designed to be worn with girdles and corsets. Have no fear of the fitted bodice when you've got a corset underneath!
Many corsets will get the job done beautifully, like the Nude Sand Underbust Corset.
3. Formal and Bridal Style
There are a lot of ways you can go formal on Halloween, like zombie bride or killer prom queen. A corset will perfect your shape. Use one underneath a number of formal dress styles, or as the bodice itself paired with a flowing skirt.
You can't go wrong with a bridal piece like the Graceful Bride Longline Convertible Bustier by Va Bien.
4. Goth Style Corsets
This is the perfect time to go Goth. Be a sexy vampire, witch or any other dark lady. A black or dark-colored corset works best, over a long, slinky skirt -- at least knees length, but with slits if desired. Great accessories include heels and thigh-highs with garter belts.
For Goth, choose a black corset like the Classic Sweetheart Shape Corset by Bonitaz.
5. Burlesque Corsets
If you've ever been too timid to try burlesque style, why not give it a try on Halloween? A corset is the foundation of any burlesque girl's outfit. To be truly burlesque all you'll need is a skimpy bottom underneath, but you can use more clothing if desired, like a lacy skirt.
For burlesque you'll need a flashy corset like the Sparkling Silhouette Overbust Corset by Eurotique.
