A basque is women's clothing term for a tight, form-fitting bodice or coat.

In the Victorian fashion, a basque was a long, fitted jacket, or the skirts of such a jacket.

Nowadays the term basque is used for a piece of erotic lingerie, with fetishistic overtones. Basque may also refer to details reminiscent of lingerie such as frilly lace and cut out designs.
