Debunking Corsets
My friend Lisa over at Collector's Weekly thought my readers would enjoy this piece on corsets. As many of you know, I've procured a fabulous collection of pre-1930s garments - much of which includes lingerie. I have not found any corsets as yet within the collection, but who knows what will turn up!
Many myths about what a corset is and does to a woman's body is debunked here by Valerie Steele, who is the director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. 
A fabulous read, thanks Lisa at Collector's Weekly!
