A bodice is an article of clothing covering the body from the waist to the neck. It can also refer to the upper part of a dress. The word originated from the plural of body, an alteration of bodies. Originally bodices were constructed in two parts or bodies hence the name bodice.

Todays bodice usually refers to a upper garment that has removable sleeves or no sleeves that is worn to distinguish it from the skirt and sleeves. They come in a wide gamut of shapes and styles along with a multitude of fasteners.

Bodices frequently have boning, a stiff bent material that runs vertically along the body to achieve a fashionable shape. Bodices are typically looser fitting compared to its closest cousin the corset.
