This is a drawing of an hourglass corset from 1878.[1]

A corset, in addition to a basque and shapewear, can accentuate and form the body, often into a curvier or smoother shape. Although not technically bras, they can be worn underneath clothing to provide shape, over clothing as an accessory, or alone for more intimate purposes.
