Inside this chapter, you will have a general overview about corsets

  • Three sub-chapters present detailed information on the continuously change of corset-fashion over the time of several centuries


  • An overview about different styles of corsetry, presented by some sketches, gives additional explanation
  • A short overview about names and types of different fabrics will get you more familiar with their specific and individual characteristics
  • With a short chapter about medical aspects of most discussed real and/or imaginary corset related health-problems, I try to eliminate all the multiple prejudices, accumulated over several decades in the past.
