Our Favorite Corset Wearing Movie Characters

These leading ladies made us fall in love with the romance and allure of the corset all over again. These corsets were not just prop pieces in the following movies, but defining parts of the characters, whether good or bad.

  1. Kate Winslet in Titanic

The movie Titanic was full of incredible beauty and scenery, juxtaposed against scenes of abject terror and human misery. It showed us the violent contrasts between the rich and the poor and the ways people fell into the trap of what was expected of them. Beautiful Rose was a wealthy socialite who fell for poor, charming Jack Dawson. Dressed to the nines, Rose was almost always seen in a variety of elaborate dresses and corsets. There is one especially memorable scene where her mother is harshly tightening the laces of her corset to show her disappointment with her daughter.

  1. Lily James in Cinderella

What little girl didn’t dream of being Cinderella? This live action remake of the Disney classic featured Lily James as the beautiful, downtrodden Cinderella who meets her prince charming by accident. The classic moment when Cinderella is magically done up in her fairytale blue dress, blue corset and, of course, glass shoes, is one to remember.

  1. Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge

The tragic romance of the prostitute in the Moulin Rouge in love with a poor writer is one of comedy, beauty and loads of corsets! Corset after corset is featured in this movie as the girls dance the cabaret, seduce men and run from villains. It’s a corset feast for the eyes! 

  1. Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman’s iconic costume with its blue, red and gold corset is a symbol of female empowerment, strength and beauty and no list about loving movie corsets would be complete without it. Reprised in many roles, Gal Gadot is the most recent heroine to don the costume and inspire young women everywhere.
