Le Corset, Ludovic O'Followell (1905-1908)  Author was doctor who hoped to make clear the detrimental effects the then-current corset designs had on women's health.  To that end, he took X-ray images of women in their binding underthings, 1908.    Image sample   #2    Cover

Jamie1945:  "I feel forced to comment on the first X-ray image relating to this item.  It was pointed out to me in the past by a tightlacing lady-friend that the corset-laces are loose.
Look at the top eyelets on the first X-ray.  If the writer had intended to show the effects of tightlacing, then he failed. This is loose-lacing!"

The House of Worth. Portrait of an Archive, De La Haye, A./Mendes, V. D.,  London 2014

Michael M.:  'The book, with its 176 pages, contains a huge bulk of excellent photographs of gowns designed by the House, founded by the most famous designer of the era: Charles Frederic Worth; the pictures are from the Worth Archive. The House began to systematically photograph its output from around 1889 onward. There are no photos of corsets in the book and only a short text about corsetry (page 79), but many photos of the most beautiful gowns with remarkably small waists. Beside the photos, there are many very interesting facts and information about tailoring, gowns, styles, etc. In short: a book no one interested in women's clothing of the late 19th century should miss!"

It's A Cinch!: Corsets Keep These Men Under Their Wives' Control, Emily Masters

 

 

Amazon:  What better way is there for a woman to control her husband than to make him wear a corset? The wives in these stories about corset discipline know that a tightly laced waist is perfect for putting a man in his place, imposing their will with the most unforgiving of foundation garments. Whether training him to do as he's told or simply having some fun with feminization, they're sure to get their way when they've got their husbands helpless in corsetry.
