Cheap Thrill: A Corset Dress That Won’t Tighten Your Budget

There's two things that Vivienne Westwood knows how to do really well: Win our hearts with her insanely flattering corset dresses, and then break our wallets with their hefty price. Though we're saving up for one of these timeless strapless pieces with the pointed bustier, there's a similar style at AllSaints that we can buy now to wear to our summer cocktail engagements. With a sculpted waist and a corseted bodice, this dress is guaranteed to give you curves if you need them and show 'em off if you already have them. And at 10% of the Vivienne Westwood's price, that's definitely something to help you breathe easier (the corset on the other hand...).
