 Stephen K.:

Belle of Göteborg

"This lady looks wealthy and is certainly extremely corseted. The advertising
on the back claims that the photographer works with the (Swedish) Royal
Family, but the subject is not identified. Found on eBay
here."

Attractive fetish

From Crinolyn

 

 

Stephen K.:

"When my sister was a teenager and went to music camp she talked contemptuously about a teacher she called 'VCL', for 'visible corset line', not imagining how desirable this made the woman in my mind! I don't suppose, though, that she looked anything like Miss Groat, whom I found on eBay here. Her figure is not particularly extreme, but I have never seen a photograph of someone whose corset was more obvious through her dress!"                        More cabinet cards

"We can never prove this, but I suspect she has borrowed someone else's corset which doesn't fit properly - someone with a broader chest and larger bust."

This photo was cleaned up by Crinolyn

Stephen K.: 

Possibly an Era postcard
(Maybe a playing card - notice the spade
in the lower right corner)

The structure of the bodice and corset
 underneath is quite satisfying...


You can't wear a belt in place of a corset, but a LISABelt will
keep your organs in place for
an hour or two while you exercise,
or some such, keeping your corset safe from damage

Stephen K. introduces this 2015 film to our film list:

Crimson Peak

"Two animated GIFs and this portrait show Jessica Chastain in character as Lucille Sharp, a sinister,
tightly dressed and well corseted lady of quality. From what I have read on the Internet, the corset
scenes were cut from the film, but are included in a 'featurette' on the accompanying DVD. An article
about costume design in the film is
here."

Stephen K. points to these videos of interest:

'Interview with a "mom of 3" who waist-trains to an 18" waist size. I think this is the same lady known on YouTube as "Di Ara".

'Kwēn Keish shows us "How I Maintain My Big Butt & Small Waist" - an admirable object, and a corset is the centre of her method, of course!'

Stephen K.:

"I came across an Instagram belonging to someone with the delightful nickname The Corseted Beauty.
I sent [these pictures] from her list: (L to R) the actress Cléo de Mérode in corseted costume, an
unidentified and exceedingly cute girl perhaps from the late 1880s (is that a graduation certificate
she's holding?) who is very well laced in for her big day, and the astoundingly tight-laced courtesan
and equestrienne Catherine 'Skittles' Walters. It is possible this was faked in antiquity;
the last I sent turned out to have been."              Another of Skittles on LISA

Roger K.:

Lucy Williams’ 347-page Kindle e-book Solaced: 101 Uplifting Narratives About Corsets, Well-Being, and Hope is now only $5 on Amazon, down from $7.77, here.
 
This price-cut was partly in response to a pirated version, partly to make it more accessible to more people, and partly to help fund the editing and printing of a paperback edition.  Lucy is YouTube’s corset-lady, with over 100 high-class instructional videos and corset reviews, plus a corset database, web site, social media presence, etc., etc.  If you haven’t seen Lucy on YouTube, here’s her video from 2013 on How Corsets Heal.
 
Here’s what Heather Twist, one of 52 reviewers (94% five-star raters), wrote:
 
“These are personal stories from women wearing corsets. For them, the corset is often a piece of body armor, giving support and protection in both a physical and an emotional way. You will hear the stories of women who escaped major damage from auto accidents, or who recovered from spinal damage, by using a corset. You will also hear about how women have changed their self-image because now they stand tall and strong.
 
The 'Wonder Woman' image is not just metaphorical. The actress playing Wonder Woman is wearing a battle-corset of sorts in the movie. Those were (and are) worn by men in the past, to protect their bodies and also to hold the weight of their weapons and and armor. Wrestlers and furniture movers wear belts that use the same principle. It makes the warrior look more awesome, but it also does the necessary work to protect the person.
 
I've been wearing these for a few years myself, and I can't believe the difference it makes in my body. I feel about 20 years younger just putting mine on and I can do a lot more physical labor. It is important to get one that fits correctly ... like shoes, fit is everything."

Roger K., responding to yesterday's second entry:

"Queen Maud of Norway was famous for her small waist (All three daughters of King Edward were tight-laced -
I saw a picture of all three showing that).  Here’s a page with a dozen confirmatory pictures.

"There’s also a book on her clothing with many pictures of her, called Style and Splendor.
It’s out of print and the cheapest used copy is over $150 on Amazon here.

"However, Amazon UK lists it at half the price."

 


 

Stephen K.:  "A publicity still from Raintree County (1957).
There may be no directly visible corset, but no actress has ever
looked more obviously tight-laced than Miss Taylor did in that film."

'In-England Jamie':

"I spent a few days in Norway recently, hoping [but failing] to see the Aurora Borealis.  The hotel in Tromso issued British guests with a potted history, which included the independent formation of Norway in 1905, from its former situation as part of the joint monarchy of Sweden-Norway.  Important in the process was the marriage and then the accessions of King Haakon II and his wife as Queen Maud.  She was the British princess Maud of Wales, being the youngest daughter of King Edward VII when he was still Prince of Wales.  In the brochure was this photo and URL.  She seems impossibly small-waisted to me, but this is an official photo, apparently."
