Nail the ‘ballerina’ corset dress trend just like Maura Higgins 🩰✨

The perfect little white dress

by Hannah Mellin |

Corsets have been having a magic moment of late, thanks to Netflix series Bridgerton inspiring us to er, make an effort and get out of our loungewear, the emergence of ballercore and endless TikToks that take us back to the historic origins of the most popular fashion garment. Consider us obsessed.

Love Island legend Maura Higgins recently wore the most ballerina-esque and pretty white corset dress on a recent trip to Paris. We’re not going to lie, she looks like an actual painting.

Her followers seemed to agree, with one commenting, "You look like a Disney Princess! 😍".

Another added, "Cinderella vibes 😍 👸🏽."

Unfortunately Maura’s dress exact dress is from Annies Ibiza and is pretty pricey (£695), but we’ve done our job and scoured the internet for the best dupes for as little as £20.99.

If you’re looking for a date night dress or just want to have a Cinderella moment of your own in your bedroom, get ready to channel your inner sultry ballerina and make yourself the main character with these gorgeous corset dresses that will nip you in and make you feel uhmazing.

What is a corset in a dress?

Corsets date back to the 16th century where they were worn by women and men. They’re basically a fitted garment with stiff supports that cinch you in. Back in the day, the tighter the corsets the better but thankfully, this isn’t the case these days as fashion has got a much more relaxed approach.

Corsets were historically worn under clothing, but these days we’re all about wearing them over tops or dresses. Corset dresses have corsets sewn into them already.
