I have been forced to see something I didn't want to see. There is a significant number of people that think the bones in a corset are there to support the body. To this I say, no, the fabric is there to support you, the bones are there to support the fabric.


Oh, and corsets are not intrisically torture devices. I have worn some pretty comfy corsets. I have worn some not so comfy ones, too, but that goes for any piece of clothing that doesn't really fit.

*sigh*

LOL both of them are from your journal today.


The second of the three at the bottom has a link to the 'history of the bra' that totally trashes corsets.


And the second one makes mention of cable ties giving 'plenty of support' in such a way I can't help but assume she means 'for the body'.

Heh, well, I included the disclaimer that I hadn't read through them yet :P

I wonder if I'm brave enough to include a "Hall of Shame" links site in my web update. The silly Yale (?) site would go first, then we could find other *winners* for the rest :D
