Unless you're a private dancer, a dancer for money...or doing some serious waist-training, a corset is probably not a part of your everyday wardrobe.

Having a bad rep for internal organ crushing and inducing fainting, it isn't any wonder we women of the 21st century culled them from our closets over 100 years ago.

However the corset is making a come-back for 2017, but like you've never seen it before- as a belt. Much like a waist-belt this trend is utterly pointless and purely for asthetics, but it's a kinda cool way to jazz up even the dullest of outfits . . . eg. wear one non-chalantly over a plain white-tee, a chunky-knit jumper, slip dress or even a jacket.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
