Wearing a corset is at once masochistic and incredibly hot. Perhaps that's why the articles in this cluster of corsets have each gotten so much traffic--they attract attention for both fans and foes of the controversial fashion piece.
Click through the slideshow below to see some incredibly hot (or frightening, depending on your outlook) corsets, from corset body piercings to geektastic comic and 'Star Trek'-themed corsets.
Implications - From models in chains to vintage corset reinventions, the waist cincher has become highly popular with the modern sexualization of fashion. The corset embodies a picture-perfect figure and causes the body to conform in shape, which gives the wearer a false sense of the perfect body.
