Descriptive line

'Butt-lifter' pants by Ann Chery for Premadonna, Columbia, 2015

Labels and date

Creating curves

Waist trainers are worn as slimming aids to compress the core. They are a contemporary alternative to tightly laced corsets. Their impact on the body, like that of corsets, is controversial.

Butt-lifters enhance the shape and size of the bottom. Unlike the 19th century bustle, which also created volume in this area, butt-lifters separate and define the buttocks.
