corsets

I was looking at new corsets in an vintage clothing store today and I noticed that the boning wasn't very rigid- in fact, it was pretty bendy. Are real corsets bendy like that, or is the boning very stiff? I thought old ones used to be metal or bone, which to me means very hard, but what do I know. (And by "real" I mean a corset that you could really use to cinch your waist, not just one that looks pretty as lingerie.)
