While corsets in film and fashion have largely been limited to the youthfully svelte figures of Keira Knightly, Kate Winslet and Dita Von Teese, the flattering effects of the corset are proving increasingly popular with women of all ages and sizes.
From women looking to tuck in those extra pounds, to those looking to spice things up in the bedroom, the renaissance of the corset has not been limited to young, anatomically advantaged women.
Indeed, one such woman was the subject of a recent letter to Scotland's Daily Record. The husband of the older woman in question was asked to buy a leather or rubber corset to revitalise their love life.
Indeed, as older women begin to rediscover their sexuality the stereotype of the rather staid 55-year old woman dressed in flat shoes and big pants is giving way to the corset-clad, fishnet-stockinged sex-fiend.
So any older women looking to spice things up for their man remember, a corset is not just for Christmas!
