An article of dress, which closely embraces the trunk, and is much used by females in civilized countries. When corsets or stays are worn very tight, many serious evils result from the unnatural compression. Different bandages, more or less complicated, which embrace the greater part of the trunk, are likewise so called. An orthopedic corset is one intended to obviate deviation of the stature.
