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.

1948---- Gowns WAKE OF THE RED WITCH (GAIL RUSSELL & ADELE MARA)     STILL CLIPS

 No corsets seen, but the evidence is overwhelming--beautiful, tight-waisted gowns!

2007----WALK ALL OVER ME (LEELEE SOBIESKI)                   Vidclip


 

1962---- WALTZ OF THE TOREADORS (DANY ROBIN)--CLIP AVAILABLE ON DESCRIPTOR PAGE

 Ms. Robin has to undress to her corset when her gown is caught in a fishing hook.

1954---- Lacing and Gowns THE WANTON CONTESSA--Italian "Senso"  
                    (ALIDA VALLI and MARCELLA MARIANI) 
16 STILL CLIPS AND VIDEO  

                    Two longish scenes with VERY TIGHT corset visibility; the nicest thing about it is that: the first scene depicts the countess wearing one, so it  is made of
                    fancy fabric (brocade-like). But the second scene has a prostitute wearing one, and the corset is plain and white. Obviously the latter doesn't have as much
                    money to devote to her corset, so it has to look cheaper. Another nice piece of reality from Visconti.. 
Review by Sam Laur 

1993---- WARLOCK: THE ARMAGEDDON (JOANNA PACULA)

1997---- WASHINGTON SQUARE (JENNIFER JASON LEIGH)

                   Some typically uninformed quotes from Ms. Leigh:

                   "[Corsets] are so ungodly and uncomfortable and they really mess up your body…. They [the costume designers] put the waistline just under the floating rib.
                   For me, the waist was 19 inches. It was torture…  Your organs are all being mushed around.  I couldn't breathe and I got sick. That was  the only time I've
                   ever really been afraid that I could hurt myself.  A lot of women were killed by those corsets."  

2010----WASHU WARRIOR (AMBER GOLDFARB)

1939---- WATER FOR CANITOGA--German "Wasser für Canitoga" (CHARLOTTE SUSA) 

A rather long "knee-in-back" lacing scene in the first 30 minutes

             Going back to the 1910s doesn't mean that fashion has to be sacrificed! Here the show's costume designer and cast take us behind-the-scenes and discuss anything from corsets to wide-brim

Barely made the list--terrible movie, even corset-wise. One short view of a corset-garment. There is, however, a secretary obviously wearing a very heavy girdle.

1997---- THE WINGS OF THE DOVE (HELENA BONHAM CARTER)

                One corset scene at the beginning of the film. One short scene at the end where Ms. Carter takes off  her corset for her
                lover. Nothing special.

2004----Gowns THE WINNING SEASON -- TVM (KRISTIN DAVIS)

                (From an interview with David Martindale)
                "It was the most high-maintenance hairdo and outfit that I've ever had,' she says. 'It took 45 minutes to button me into those clothes."  Adjusting to the her
                 wardrobe in The Winning Season, in which she plays the girlfriend of baseball great Honus Wagner, wasn't always easy for her. But putting on one of those
                 old-style dresses - 'and the corset,' she hastens to add -- helped her 'find' her character.  "If I would walk quickly from my trailer to the baseball stadium,
                 I would be winded, because you can't get a whole full breath (wearing so constricting an outfit)."
 

                 (From an interview with Jill Vejnoska)

                "Season," with its mostly male cast, is as different from "Sex" as bustles are from bustiers. Meanwhile, "Sex's" modern-day slaves to fashion have nothing on corset-
                wearing Mandy. "If I would walk quickly from, like, my trailer to the baseball stadium, I would be winded because you can't get a whole full breath," said Davis. "It
                took 45 minutes to button me into these clothes. I get dressed in 10 minutes at 'Sex and the City.'"
