An illustrated history of the corset and the crinoline, from the origins of slender waisted fashion through early beginnings in the middle ages, to the Medici's, the courts of French Kings, to the stays and underpinnings of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth centuries. Packed with contemporary illustrations and styles, this profusely illustrated fashion history surveys the range of undergarments.
Discover how the use of wood, whalebone, steel, hoops, and tight laces had a gripping influence on shaping the figures of women from ancient Greece to 19th-century Vienna.
