Some films have been rated as to their corset-visibility, using little 's.
One denotes little corsetry, while is a VERY GOOD corset-film.
Films with "lacing" scenes are denoted with "Lacing".
Films with corsets UNDER gowns only are denoted with "Gowns".
Obviously, these ratings have little to do with a critical evaluation of the film itself.

1984 ---- NO MAN'S LAND-- TVM (STELLA STEVENS)
Stella Stevens is a former actress who livens up her Wild Western town with some glamorous clothes. There are two corset scenes. In one, her maid (Estelle Getty out of "The Golden Girls") is helping her change after her gown was torn, and we see her in a tough and utilitarian white corset; the other is a long scene in her boudoir late in the evening, where her boyfriend comes in through the window and argues with her. She is wearing a blue net peignoir over a pink satin corset, and at one point during the argument, she suddenly breaks off and gasps for breath, pressing a hand to her waist. Her boyfriend asks what's the matter. "My corset," she says, "It's too tight…"
1999 ---- Gowns NORA (SUSAN LYNCH) Stillclips
A film all about James Joyce and his muse, Nora, set between 1904 and
1914. Lovely costumes, but not too many corsets, [?]
although judging by the
silhouettes, plenty of the extras must
have been laced or just been plain thin! Review by James
