If you burned through Bridgerton‘s first season last year, it’s likely that you haven’t stopped thinking about the sultry scenes between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) since — or the Regencycore fashion that has inundated the runways and street style.
With that in mind, it’s only normal for its protagonist — the corset — to be on everyone’s mind again, as the second season of Netflix’s most-watched series premieres. And their popularity is only increasing: According to global shopping and payments service Klarna, purchases for corsets are up 407% over the past two months.
Thanks to brands like Christopher John Rogers, Dior, and Gucci, corsets, both lingerie-style options and more wearable alternatives (which you can wear over shirts and dresses), are available everywhere from ASOS to Net-A-Porter.
Shop the Bridgerton way with one of the on-trend corsets ahead. (Crotchless bloomers not included.)
