From the corset to the Colombian faja: years of evolution and feminine curves
This is the maximum antecedent in the evolution of the Colombian faja, which has marked different styles in the fashion of each time, since its creation to date. It is a garment that fulfills the function of improving the aesthetics and the feminine figure, having also orthopedic and therapeutic functions.
The corset is the female garment that precedes the famous Colombian faja, and although many women think that its creation could be recent, it has a long tradition and history.
For many years, Colombian postpartum fajas or postoperative girdles have been recommended to correct problems of spinal deviations, for recovery after going to the operating room and even to relieve cervical pain.
Unlike the uncomfortable corset, in recent years the evolution of the original Colombian faja has been considered as a garment made of soft fabrics ideal for shaping and improving the female figure.
Evolution of the Colombian faja: It all started in Greece and became popular in France
It was during the time of Catherine de Medici, Queen Consort of France, in the late 1600s, that the use of the corset was imposed and became widespread among the women of the court.
However, history tells that its use is earlier and dates back to ancient Greece on the island of Crete, where women used a type of corset to stylize their figure, tighten their body, lift the breasts and buttocks with materials that were sometimes very rigid and hard, such as dry leather, wood and even metal.
After this period, in the 19th century, it reached its peak with fine embroidery, prints, fabrics with rhinestones and lace.
The arrival of cotton, satin and comfort
As time went by, the corset evolved into what we know today as Colombian slimming, shaping or postpartum girdles. These have new materials such as cotton and satin, much more elastic and soft textures that overcame the initial stiffness and discomfort to become a comfortable garment for daily use for many women and even men who need lumbar support and for exercise.
With the change in the canons of beauty, the female figure adapted and so did the garments. For example, with the emergence of the feminist movement in the last century, the image of a looser and more flexible silhouette attached to the natural line of the body became popular.
Until the Second World War was over, Cristian Dior would once again promote the slim figure, with wasp waist and ruffled skirts.
