The Cinched Waist
6 years ago by
Yes, it’s a trend, but more than that – it’s something that women have kind of been obsessed with for ages. The impossibly thin waist! Men too, actually. The word corset is derived from the French word corps (body), which itself derives from corpus – Latin for body. And traditionally are made of a flexible material to help you quickly conform to the most fashionable silhouette. Ah history!
This version from Tibi, a soft, non-restrictive band at your waist, isn’t as focused on the unimaginable reshaping of your body, but more accenting it – and for that, I think I’m for it. Plus it is pretty elegant, and a quick update to an otherwise simple look.
To cinch or not to cinch, what do you think?

Oui a la ceinture, non au corset. :-)
Love your outfit! Sophie x
I think since French is a latin language, it didn’t pass through the reference of corps in english, it went like “corset – corpus”.
I love TIBI! Elegant, chic ensemble.
Check out our Black Friday deals, ladies – for those who are into the California chic as well.
Moi je suis une grande partisane de la taille marquée par une belle ceinture large. La silhouette “sablier”, un grand classique que j’adore, et que je travaille en tant que créatrice!
I love it very much. So elegant, so beautiful, so feminine.
I do have a slim waist but I have quite wide hips so I look awfully renaissance when I clinch my waist…
