Orthopaedic corsets are intended to be fashionable and beneficial for your overall health. Although they may be uncomfortable, corsets can be used to correct certain bodily problems in addition to slimming you down.
According to "A History of the Corset," corsets have been a part of the upper crust’s wardrobe since roughly the 14th century. But, as listed on Freepatentsonline.com, the first patented orthopaedic corset came about in 1950.
The orthopaedic corset was invented to correct scoliosis while simultaneously keeping the wearer’s figure in check, according to Staylace.com.
The orthopaedic corset, according to its patent, is a makeshift, nonstretch material vest which envelops the torso. In addition, there are two vertical stiffening structures, one at the centre of the front and the other at the back. An inflatable bag is connected and placed against the abdominal cavity.
An orthopaedic corset can also be used to slim down a figure, although one would be better suited to buy a corset without the same metal stiffening structures, for comfort’s sake, if they’re simply wearing it for aesthetic purposes.
