As New York Fashion Week continues, it would be a great opportunity to take advantage of fall clothing sales. What better way to do this than a new corset!!
Make sure your intestines are squeezed tight this fall with a brand new corset! It is hard to believe that these uncomfortable costume garments were once worn on a daily basis to help accentuate the figure. Thankfully we have come a long way from forcing the body into an unrealistic shape to self acceptance.
Are you ready for Corset Week? You can choose among many different kinds of corsets that mold the figure and support vital organs. There are also corsets available for growing women. The image above is featured in September 14, 1914 Newark Evening Star and Newark Advertiser.
