Excerpt from a
New York Times article

"Steampunk style is corseted, built on a scaffolding of bustles, crinolines and parasols and high-arced sleeves not unlike those favored by the movement’s designer idols: Nicolas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen and, yes, even Ralph Lauren.

"Quaint to some eyes, or outright bizarre, steampunk fashion is compelling all the same. It is that rarity, a phenomenon with the potential to
capture a wider audience, offering a genteel and disciplined alternative to both the slack look of hip-hop (sic) and the menacing spirit of goth."


"Steamed Punk" hosts an annual convention called
SalonCon ,
where many of the attendees wear corsets.

Here is a sample from the site devoted to that
