"Model Wears Corset 23 Hours A Day
To Achieve 20 Inch Waist"
Aleira Avendaño achieved an
eye-watering 20 inch waist from
wearing a corset 23 hours a day. The
busty model, who is a surgically
enhanced 34DD, has been wearing the
waist-shrinking garment for the last
six years and even refers to it as
her second skin.
...and some last minute additional
clips from Jörge on the same
ED: We find her quite
out of proportion! Great
Highlights from the
exhibition include dresses that span the century, mauve-hued
footwear dyed with the first coal tar colours invented in
a shoemaking automaton monkey by famed French automaton
maker, Jean‐Marie Phalibois, beautiful hand embroidered
boots manufactured by the exclusive Parisian shoemaking firm
of Francois Pinet, impossibly narrow Adelaide boots and
gloves worn by Empress Elisabeth of Austria and a
corset with a sixteen inch waist from the Cleaver/Suddon
"Little information about the Cleaver-Suddon collection is
available online, but it seems to be held at the
School of Fashion belonging
to Ryerson University in Canada. This suggests it is
intended for use by students and not generally available to
the public. The exhibition in question is on until June
2016, so there is still time to visit."
This site seems to relate to the same collection. Access
to the collection is by appointment only.
Grandma sat in Grandpa's rocking chair
as she told me stories of him—a
sentimental cowboy—a man I never knew.
She said the first time he saw her,
he remarked, “I am going to marry that
girl.” Pictures of her reveal a lovely
young woman with dark hair, brown
eyes, and an eighteen-inch waist.
“Everyday I put on a corset, grabbed
hold of the bedpost with both hands as
my sister cinched the laces taut through
the eyelets. It was tight, very
tight. Then, I tied on three to five
petticoats to get that hour glass
figure,” she confessed. “Strait-laced
was the fashion of the time.”
to the Murdoch Mysteries episode,
topic yesterday posted
From a visitor who wishes to remain anonymous:
recent episode of Murdoch Mysteries will be of
interest to corset enthusiasts:"
Season 8, Episode 12 (S08E12, or
8x12) The Devil Wears Whalebone - "Murdoch discovers
that fashion is murder when a model is killed during a
protest at a designer corset show."
"My quick review:
There's a curious mix of historical accuracy and 21st
century revisionism, not unexpected in a show like this. And
some of the 'science' around corsetry and corsets, including
a unique one at the heart of this mystery, is stretched a
bit too far. But take it for what it is: light
entertainment, not to be taken too seriously, and I'm sure
you'll enjoy it. The final scene is an unexpected surprise,
quite suggestive, but tasteful and well done.
