Stephen K.:

"I found this picture of a mixed doubles set taken in Leicester, probably about 1885. The players are a set of contrasts. One of the men is slight and healthy-looking, the other fat and bearded like the then Prince of Wales; one of the women is dressed fairly simply by the standards of the time (and very elaborately by the standards of our time), the other is exceedingly glamorous with a very tight bodice straining over her corset and a huge bustle."

Peripheral steampunk

From Crinolyn


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

On 6 Sep, Jörge posted two videos of tightlacer Alice Lafferty - now he sends these stills:

 


Stephen K:

A “time swap” story in which a modern woman finds herself in the mid-1880s.
Illustrated with a period fashion engraving of these two elaborately dressed,
huge-bustled, tiny-waisted belles.

'D' found this YouTube video. which was posted back in September 2014.  It looks like it might be a collection of clips from different films,
but we do not recognize any of the films. The time periods shown seem to range from medieval up to the time of the American civil war.
The name, Throne of Blood, does not show on imDB, except as a 1957 Japanese film, which does not pair with what we see.


An Era print worthy of your attention

From Crinolyn

Stephen K. adds: "I can't remember the exact caption attached, but it amounts to the husband saying how curious it is that he tied his wife's corset with this kind of knot in the morning, and yet now it is tied with another."

"I recently came across a local corset company, which I've missed for some years,
it appears.  They are named Valkyrie Corsets, and here is a nice image of Threnody
in Velvet, in one of their creations."
