“I’m really obsessed with waist training! Thank you @premadonna87 for my new waist shapers! #whatsawaist” –Kim Kardashian

 

Ever since these infamous Kim Kardashian Instagram posts of her showing off her PreMadonna waist trainers, leaving the corsets “under the shirts” has been a thing of the past. The “corsetry” trend has been seen in the fashion forecast for Fall 2016 from designers such as Balmain, Louis Vuitton, and Marc Jacobs. Whether you’re wearing a waist trainer or channeling the trend through corseted belts, tops and dresses, each will capture the essence of that hourglass figure that we all envy!

Let’s chat about these two beauties and their fine taste for Chanel Circa 1994 fashion. Cindy Crawford pumps the runway during the 1994 Chanel Spring/Summer Ready-To-Wear Collection wearing this corseted shirtdress that has now been revisited and revamped by Rihanna. Rihanna sports the lilac version of the vintage Chanel look with a Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2016 white parka, a matching lilac cap from the Harding Lane x Opening Ceremony collaboration, and a pair of Givenchy leather lace-up heels.

Even after her waist trainer selfies, Kim K has slayed the corsetry trend both in the Vogue Australia June issue, wearing 10 specialty corsets by Australian designers Ellery and Alex Perry, and through street style wearing a white Givenchy corset and a black Balmain corset.
