One thing that people of seem surprised by when it comes to fashion history is all the bright colors. Contrary to what history class would have you believe, the past was not in black in white. To emphasize this, I thought it would be fun to do a “Rainbow Week” this week. Every day is going to focus on articles of clothing of one particular color, covering all historical eras. As the beginning is a very good place to start, today’s color will be RED. Starting with this exception
17th century corset, stays and stomacher that has amazingly survived for almost 400 years. Made between 1620 and 1640.

Stays (later known as corsets) rapidly became fashionable throughout Europe. In 1588, the French essayist Michel de Montaigne wrote, "To get a slim body, Spanish style, what torture do women not endure, so tightly tied and bound . . . " Although doctors and moralists remonstrated, women continued to wear some form of corset until the middle of the 20th century, because corsetry was associated with feminine beauty, aristocratic display, and self-discipline.

Edwardian era (1901-1910) underclothing was the height of seductiveness, erotic and extravagant. The laborious application of embroidery, lace insertions, and ribbon work onto foundations of silk faille and cotton lawn was excessive for "garments not destined for a public career," and covered by equally elaborate outerwear.
