Basque

A basque is a form of longline bra with a tight, form-fitting bodice extending down to the hips, with garter hooks along the lower edge. Often confused with a bustier or corset – unlike a buster, a basque is form-fitting, and unlike a corset which sits under the bust, a basque has a built in cupped bra. A Merrywidow is a form of basque.
