"Corset Bastille" or "Le corselet de Sade"[1] (1948) is the informal title given to an untitled illustration by Hans Bellmer. It was published for the first time in Petite anatomie de l'inconscient physique ou petite anatomie de l'image (1957).

It represents the undulating female form in bricks. The motif of the bricks is also to be found in Man Ray's Portrait imaginaire de Sade.

It is republished in Death, Desire and the Doll: The Life and Art of Hans Bellmer.
