Health- Corsets: “The corset has been linked to a number of serious health conditions, including deep vein thrombosis, and has been criticised for sending women back to the 19th century.”

Well, there was a reason women got out of them…they couldn’t breathe! Attacks of the vapours occurred because women were oxygen starved. Body shapers are holding rib cages and flesh in. There is no nature expansion of the body. Circulation is hampered. Women used to suck lemons and get people to tie them into corsets because tiny waists were considered to be highly desirable. The health costs are well documented. I am really unsure why current women would want to climb back into extremely restrictive garments again. I can think of much better whims and fancies.
