Charles S.:

"This may be of interest. It is said to be 1908 drawings of a woman in
her new corset, annotated with comments by the woman herself (who claims it has
reduced her waist by 6 inches). Did over-bust corsets like this exist in 1908?"

ED:  Training corset, maybe?

Charles S.:
 

"I have translated the French-language story 'Une saison sur Boréa' ('A Season on Boréa') from the fredpody.com website. Much of the story will probably be of no special interest to corset enthusiasts, but chapters XIII and XV contain quite long lacing/dressing scenes and there are a few other references to corsets and tight lacing. Just to warn you, chapters VII and VIII contain descriptions of some rather extreme punishments."

ED: We have added Chapter XIII, and now XV, to the LISA website.
If you want the full story, email us and we will send it to you for the asking  (May take week to recieve).

Stephen K.:
Pinstripe belle.  "Again, the soulful stare up into the middle distance (See 13 May).
I don't know if se was an actress, but she certainly put a lot of effort into her figure -
or whoever she had to pull on her staylaces did."

Charles S.:

"Here is something a bit different – it’s a scene from a play called 'Ribbon With Gold' by the Irish playwright Dorothy Robbie."

 [Katherine comes from behind the screen, wearing her chemise and pantaloons. Her corset is loose.]

Margaret [Laughing at her]: You do look funny.

Molly: Come along now, Miss Katherine. Hold on to the bedpost and I'll tighten your stays. It's a fine strong one, thank God!

[Katherine moves to the bed, and Molly begins to pull in the strings of her corset.]

Katherine: Ouch! Please, I beg of you — not another inch. I could not bear it. It's torture — I can hardly breathe!

Molly [Pulling again unconcernedly]: Sure and you'll get used to *it, Miss Kathie. I'll give it another one just for luck, and then you'll have the smallest waist in all Dublin. Them fine ones up in the Castle will turn green when they sees ye. Their eyes will pop out of their heads on stalks. . . . there now. That didn't hurt much, did it?

[She ties off the strings, and Katherine staggers from the bedpost to the mirror.]

Katherine: I shall never breathe again. [Looks at herself.] Oh, don't I look queer? I feel like a queen wasp!

[She steps into her petticoat and Molly ties it.]

Margaret [Laughing]: You won't be able to walk, much less dance. Is it very painful?

Katherine [Taking a breath]: It's not quite as bad now. I must be getting more used to it. I look as I've got a really fine figure, don't I? [She preens herself.]

Molly: Put your feet in here now, Miss Kathie, and I'll pull up the dress. Sure the silk is grand and soft, isn't it? I'd give the sight of me eyes to wear a dress like this.

[Katherine steps into the dress.]

Molly: I hope I can hook it up. We may have to pull you in again. That Madame Augustine or whatever she calls herself is a grand dressmaker, but she doesn't leave much room. This will be like a second skin on you.

Katherine: You are not pulling those stays any tighter. If the dress won't hook up you can pin me into it.

Molly [Hooking the dress]: 'Tis quite all right. The hooks do up fine and easy.


Stephen K.:
Hourglass belle with elaborately embroidered dress. "The whole gown seems to be covered with appliqué vines
modelled in three-dimensional detail, which must have taken even more time and money than Mama's beading in yesterday's picture. The soulful stare up into the middle distance was affected by many actresses of the time."

Stephen K.:

Tightly laced mother with her daughter. "Mama's elaborately beaded dress shows that she has the money
to spend on visiting an expert dressmaker, and her hourglass figure shows that she doesn't have to bend
over to pick up after her children. Her daughter, circa 1885, is too young to be corseted yet, but old
enough that she will be a fashionable young lady in the last heyday of tight-lacing."

Stephen K.:

Belle of Hanley. "Another young lady who would have been thought "mannish" at the time -
boater hat, stiff collar and tie - but is extremely tightly laced. Her puffed sleeves
date the picture to around 1895."

Stephen K.:

Belle of Havant. "Unmistakably 1890s, with her 'mannish' boater, stiff collar and tie,
and utterly feminine minutely corseted waist. The long hair implies that she is still considered a
girl, not a young lady. I wonder what the Chinese characters on her belt say? "   More cabinet cards
