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.
Note: All clips available here are for review purposes only, presented in order to entice the viewer to purchase the film in its entirety.

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

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.
