Corsets for Men

Some men wore corsets in the 18th and 19th centuries. Especially in the late 1700s and early 1800s, where high fashion for men called for form-fitting trousers and jackets that required smooth silhouette. Therefore men wore corsets to have a very tight and thin waist. However, by the mid-1800s, the few men who wore fashion corsets were more commonly subjects of ridicule.
