Link to Fascinating Post on Women's Corsets

I've just been reading a very interesting post about Corsets, Whalebones and Waist-whittlers on multi-published author Freda Lightfoot's blog and thought I'd provide a link to it, since it's a subject that interests most historical novelists. It's a fascinating insight into these often highly uncomfortable aids to a particular female shape through the different centuries.

Thank you for that link, Rosemary, it was very interesting.
We need to do a lot of excercise to get the same posture that earlier women got from wearing corsets, so perhaps there were some advantages...

You're welcome, Carol - think they would be so uncomfortable to wear all day!
