Actually, it can refer to lingerie or outer wear. If you are asking how it translated into Spanish, it is a French word and some foreign words aren't translated, but retain their foreign spelling. (No idea if that is the case here).
Bustier means a lady with larger breasts.
As you really want to know the answer to the question, let me assure you that Qfreed is correct - the girls in the pictures are wearing bustiers. When worn as underwear, or lingerie, they may or may not have those little straps (garters) that hold up stockings and normally come down to around the waist. They are generally made from lace ("encaje) and may have strips of plastic or metal sewn into ribs, strips or seams running vertically down them. This is known as "boning" (boys, if I hear a single snigger...) as whale bone was originally used for this purpose. They are often fastened with "hooks and eyes" or "corchetes" (see the picture below), either at the back or the front.
The second picture, of the gold coloured bustier, shows a one that is an actual top, or outerwear. I suppose that the best way of differentiating a bustier from any other top is that it fits the body very closely and generally has a bra (brassiere) built into so it supports and emphasises the breasts. They are often worn for a pop-princess, sexy or goth look and are often made from lace too.
In Spanish, this may possibly be called "un sostén de cuerpo" or "un sostén largo". Perhaps you could let me know the correct word or expression if you have understood my explanation?
I hope that this helps.
The chap on the right reminds me of my uncle Fred. Same colour hair, black underwear and, oh! he also wore an earring.
Haha thanks :3, I think it was meant to be a piece of clothes and this was NOT a joke, really xD, I'm a spanish speaker I was reading a book in english and couldn't find the meaning
Boys, boys......something about this question just screams 'set-up'. And yes, before I get accused of this, I AM jealous that I don't look like that any more.....
