Aarkey:

Death (CosPlay)  - Sandman Comics  "I never thought she would wear a corset, but evidently she does when she's being CosPlayed!

"I can make out the outline of the corset, particularly where it is a bit too large at the top of the corset on her left ribs
(our right looking at the picture)."

Jon H.:

"This popped up after a bit of googling. It is a very well known advertising
image but I had never seen the original. Often said to be Camille Clifford
without any evidence whatsoever, and the lady does not look particularly like her."

 

 

 

We do not post much in the way of bondage pictures,
but this one is a nice exception

'D' found this on the Deviant Art site

While of fleeting interest, it must be noted that the corset is apparently
not boned; furthermore, the lady's head seems to have been pasted.

We guess this might be the rare time when a corset's laces
can be tied on the side without harming the garment

Stephen K. has sent us five pictures from The Era, which incorporate crinolined skirts.
We will post the other three soon.

(L) Two crinoline ladies, perhaps mother and daughter. "The younger woman, standing, is splendidly
      tight laced and I love the way her bodice strains at the many seams that shape it to her hourglass figure."

(R) Girl in checked crinoline dress with minute wasp waist. "Her waist really is scarcely bigger than her neck. 
      Note the pretty ringlets, which in a few years she will be required to wear 'up'."

Stephen K.:

"I came across this page; I can't read Hungarian, and the Google translation is not very clear,
but I found on it the polka-dot belle of 1890 here, whose fashionably puffed sleeves
contrast splendidly with her extremely slim waist. The page also has an advertisement for or
article about corsets from the Hungary Bazaar in 1870, which from the translation seems to
advocate putting girls into corsets from the age of two - something I think deplorable."

Stephen K.:

"Ilka Pálmay was a Hungarian actress who enjoyed success across Europe and even in America, though she was most famous in Budapest. The attached images show her as Julia Jellicoe in Gilbert and Sullivan's The Grand Duke, and as Serpolette (mislabelled 'Rip Van Winkle') in Les Cloches de Corneville."

Stephen K. points to these videos:

"Amy Wilderness" strikes poses in a black leather corset, shiny black leggings,
a black studded bra  and black studded platform ankle boots.

"Mixtress Rae", who has just taken up corseting, poses outdoors in her new black corset,
her banner of dark hair flying in the wind, and talks about it positively.

From Charles S.:

"An amusing cartoon. It apparently appeared in a magazine called ‘Judy’ on 11-05-1892. The caption reads:

FAMILY PRIDE
[Ureadable] (to his sister): "Hang it, you know we must show off the family seventeen inch waist somehow. If you don't, I must!"

 "I found it in this long article about posture which includes a number of references (mostly negative)
 to the effects of corsets on both posture and breathing.

The lace below the corset always makes the waist appear
smaller, much as does a full or hoop skirt or panniers

Jörg:

"In these pictures of an Era corset shop, I wonder if the two ladies in the shop window are real ladies or mannequins; the women look very real. 
There was a shop in the Nürnbergerstraße in Berlin around 1910, featuring a real woman in the shop window; the woman stood on a turntable that
moved very slowly. She wore only her underwear and a corset, which had a waist estimated by me to be 50cm; on her face, she had a mask that
covered her eyes. The whole thing was quickly banned by the authorities, but at least it was a filmed.  Unfortunately, the film could not be
downloaded from the Web.  What do you think?  Are the ladies real, or dummies?"

       

 


The corset/tight skirt combination is not to be given short shrift

From Stephen K., nothing short of incredible!

Tintype belle with frilly sleeves and flowered hat. "Like most tintypes I have seen this has not survived well, but the
lady on the right is a picture of fashionable contrasts: compare the loose, bloused bodice and extravagantly frilled
shoulders with the broad, tight band encircling her tiny waist. Probably circa 1900."
