Corset with bird embroidery Date: 1820–39 Culture: American Medium: Cotton, silk Accession Number: 2000.479 The Metropolitan Museum of Art - Corset

Nursing Corset 1835...By 1800, the corset had become primarily a method of supporting the breasts, as the waist was raised to just under the bust line. Corsets still slimmed the torso but this was not their primary purpose.

corset / the injury to organs -- the beginning of body image problems in Western World. Women, many have a natural curve in the waist -- many don't have this ALL their life, The enforcement of the Waistline -- to this day -- right in the middle of endless ads for alcohol, fast foods, cheesy this, and cheesy that.

Circa 1900. Again with the vaguely diagonal seams at the front, that many contemporary makers use or reference in their corsets today.
