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.

1952-----LA VÉRITÉ SUR BÉBÉ DONGE (THE TRUTH ABOUT BÉBÉ DONGE) -- French (DANIELLE DARRIEUX)

               Although it doesn't contain corsets per se, it does take place in France during the New Look era, where neat waists and form-fitting haute couture were de rigueur. Perhaps corsets are
               involved, or maybe                they're girdles, but for those who enjoy such looks, what's underneath is not important: the film is worth a watch either way. REVIEW BY BENDER

2004----THE VILLAGE (SIGOURNEY WEAVER)

                A supporter writes:

                "While browsing round various film review sites I was rather surprised (considering the film's 'backwoods' setting) to see references to corsets being worn by the female characters in this
                film.  Here are a couple of quotes from the leading ladies:
 
                Judy Greer: 'I'll tell you one thing, you put on a corset, it changes everything. Right now I'm sitting on the bed cross-legged with a cup of coffee, hunched over. A corset forces you to sit up
                straight, and when you sit up straight it changes your character. It's the same difference between flip-flops and Manolo Blahniks - it changes the way you walk, and when you change the way
                you walk, you change the way you are.'
 
                Sigourney Weaver: 'It was fun because I had not done much period work. Oddly enough the corsets are quite supportive for farm work. I loved the sweep of the dresses because they make
                you feel very womanly. It's a nice feeling.'"

1979----THE VILLAIN a/k/a CACTUS JACK [1980] (ANN MARGRET)

1998-----V.I.P. [German title - "Die Bodyguards" ] TVS (PAMELA ANDERSON) -- STILL CLIPS
2002                
              Not only does Ms. Andersen wear corsets, but others do as well.      

1961----VIRIDIANA--Spanish (SILVIA PINAL)

1946---- Gowns  THE VIRGINIAN (BARBARA BRITTON)

An incredibly corsetted Ms. Britten is stunning in her gowns. Unfortunately, no visible corsets are in evidence, though.

Corset-gowned video clips - from Stephen K.    Sample still-clip

2000---- Gowns THE VIRGINIAN -TVM  (DIANE LANE

While the heroine is dressing, the "Virginian" rides up to tell that he must "hunt the bad guys down."  Modest corset over petticoat scene. Heroine puts on robe but doesn't close it to talk to the hero. 

 
2005----THE VIRGIN QUEEN (a/k/a "Elizabeth I-The Virgin Queen") -TVS  (ANNE-MARIE DUFF & TARA FITZGERALD) 

              STILL CLIP     VIDCLIP


              From the television listing magazine What's On TV.  The magazine had an interview with the pictured actress (Tara Fitzgerald), which includes the following comment: 'I like being in
              corsets! At the start, you do find them slightly uncomfortable, but then they become quite comforting -  you end up feeling strapped in to the production.'

1964----VIVA LAS VEGAS (DANCER UNKNOWN)             

2009---Gowns VIVALDI, THE RED PRIEST (CLEMENCY BURTON-HILL)

              Ms. Burton-Hill wrote a 'diary' column forThe Spectator magazine, and in the entry for 6th August she describes a costume fitting she had for this film:
   
             Luca, my tailor at Farani, the historical costumiers, is clearly a genius, but has perhaps something of the demonic about him. As he laces my 18th-century corset, my waist seems miraculously
             to have shrunk to the size of Keira Knightley's, but at some point my eyeballs must be popping out of my skull and my face turning purple because the director Liana shrieks, "Luca! Loosen it!"
             Luca looks dismayed.  "But it'll ruin my shape!" he wails. "She can't breathe!" Liana helpfully points out. Luca grudgingly lets some air in, and wow, I can respire again.

1965----VIVA MARIA (BRIGITTE BARDOT  & JEANNE MOREAU)  Showgirl style--STILL CLIPS

                 Various corset scenes from this nice movie about a circus touring in Mexico. The more the two Maria's strip, the  more popular the circus gets.

1967---- Gowns  LE VOLEUR --French a/k/a "The Thief of Paris" (GENEVIÈVE BUJOLD)

              Contents of this episode: Vienna suburb, better society: Maria brings out the champagne for her bored socialite friends. The member of the impoverished nobility family Waltraud, the very
              young Caroline, married to a bank manager, and the Nobel Boutique owner Nicoletta, have organized a housewife party, of the spicier kind. When the doorbell rings, it completely surprises
             Sabine to see an old friend at the door. Her husband has made her penniless recently. Now she has to become a representative of lingerie and sex toys to stay afloat, prompting discomfort
             on the part of the ladies, because perhaps they might like them.  Eventually, not everything stays under the surface.“ [TV Today magazine] 
The clip contains some scenes of a corseted woman
             and some sex toys.
