Corsets are a key component in sexual fetishism, most obviously in BDSM activities. In a BDSM scene or relationship, a submissive can  wear a corset which could be laced very tightly and give an adjustable degree of restriction to the wearer. A dominant can also wear a corset-often black-but for a completely different reason, such as aesthetics. The garment, when worn correctly and fitted precisely is almost guaranteed to promote a commanding appearance. It becomes a type of armour and the tightness of its styling and the material of its construction adds an inflexible quality to the authority and presence of the dominant. A very common fetish costume for women is the dominatrix one. She would usually wear a corset or bustier with stockings and high-heeled footwear of some sort. High boots are quite common as they enhance the woman's stature and capacity to dominate while the corset flaunts her decision to sculpt and control her own shape. A specially designed corset, in which the breasts and vulva are exposed can be worn during vanilla sex or in other BDSM activities.
