Featured Shipping Pass Products Household. Some women made their own, while others bought their corsets. Corsets were one of the first mass-produced garments for women. Corsets began to be more heavily boned in the s. By , steel boning became popular. With the advent of metal eyelets, tight lacing became possible. The position of the eyelets changed.
They were situated across from one another at the back. The front was fastened with a metal busk in front. Corsets were mostly white. The corsets of the s—s were shorter than the corsets of the 19th century through s. This was because of a change in the silhouette of women's fashion. The s and s emphasized the hoopskirt. After the s, when the hoop fell out of style, the corset became longer to mold the abdomen, exposed by the new lines of the princess or cuirass style. The obvious health risks, including damaged and rearranged internal organs, compromised fertility; weakness and general depletion of health were also blamed on excessive corsetry.
Eventually, the reformers' critique of the corset joined a throng of voices clamoring against tightlacing , which became gradually more common and extreme as the 19th century progressed.
Preachers inveighed against tightlacing, doctors counseled patients against it and journalists wrote articles condemning the vanity and frivolity of women who would sacrifice their health for the sake of fashion.
Whereas for many corseting was accepted as necessary for beauty, health , and an upright military-style posture , dress reformists viewed tightlacing as vain and, especially at the height of the era of Victorian morality , a sign of moral indecency. American women active in the anti-slavery and temperance movements , with experience in public speaking and political agitation, demanded sensible clothing that would not restrict their movement.
In Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward wrote:. Burn up the corsets! No, nor do you save the whalebones, you will never need whalebones again. Make a bonfire of the cruel steels that have lorded it over your thorax and abdomens for so many years and heave a sigh of relief, for your emancipation I assure you, from this moment has begun. Despite these protests, little changed in restrictive fashion and undergarments by During the Edwardian period, the straight front corset also known as the S-Curve corset was introduced.
This corset was straight in front with a pronounced curve at the back that forced the upper body forward and the derrière out. This style was worn from to This was sold as an alternative to the boned corset.
The corset reached its longest length in the early 20th century. At first, the longline corset reached from the bust down to the upper thigh. There was also a style of longline corset that started under the bust, and necessitated the wearing of a brassiere. This style was meant to complement the new silhouette. It was a boneless style, much closer to a modern girdle than the traditional corset.
The longline style was abandoned during World War I. The corset fell from fashion in the s in Europe and North America, replaced by girdles and elastic brassieres , but survived as an article of costume.
Originally an item of lingerie , the corset has become a popular item of outerwear in the fetish , BDSM and goth subcultures. In the fetish and BDSM literature, there is often much emphasis on tightlacing , and many corset makers cater to the fetish market. Outside the fetish community, living history re-enactors and historic costume enthusiasts still wear stays and corsets according to their original purpose to give the proper shape to the figure when wearing historic fashions.
In this case, the corset is underwear rather than outerwear. Skilled corset makers are available to make reproductions of historic corset shapes or to design new styles.
In the late s and early s, there was a brief revival of the corset in the form of the waist cincher sometimes called a "waspie". This was used to give the hourglass figure as dictated by Christian Dior 's " New Look ". However, use of the waist cincher was restricted to haute couture , and most women continued to use girdles. Waspies were also met with push back from women's organizations in the United States as well as female members of the London Parliament as corsetry had been forbidden under rationing during World War II.
In at the feminist Miss America protest , protestors symbolically threw a number of feminine products into a "Freedom Trash Can. Since the late s, the corset has experienced periodic revivals, all which have usually originated in haute couture and have occasionally trickled through to mainstream fashion. Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood 's use of corsets contributed to the push-up bust trend that lasted from the late s throughout the s.
The strongest of these revivals was seen in the Autumn fashion collections and coincided with the release of the film Moulin Rouge! Another fashion movement, which has renewed interest in the corset, is the steampunk culture that utilizes late-Victorian fashion shapes in new ways. A corset dress also known as hobble corset because it produces similar restrictive effects to a hobble skirt is a long corset.
It is like an ordinary corset, but it is long enough to cover the legs, partially or totally. It thus looks like a dress, hence the name. A person wearing a corset dress can have great difficulty in walking up and down the stairs especially if wearing high-heeled footwear and may be unable to sit down if the boning is too stiff. Other types of corset dresses are created for unique high fashion looks by a few modern corset makers.
These modern styles are functional as well as fashionable and are designed to be worn with comfort for a dramatic look. A neck corset is a type of posture collar incorporating stays and it is generally not considered to be a true corset. This type of corset and its purpose of improving posture does not have long term results.
Since certain parts of the neck are being pulled towards the head, a band in the neck called the platysmal band will most likely disappear. Huston, collars are worn to allow minimal neck movement after road accidents. Furthermore, he concluded that wearing a collar in order to improve the structure of the neck was more cheap than physiotherapy.
