that fine line
what is feminine
from what is
That fine line
out the fickle.
of what once was
in something else
another new look.

And if the corset won’t do it, you can always have a couple of ribs removed 🙂
I’m so glad I wasn’t eating when I read your comment, or I would have spit it out. Hahaha. 🙂
So much of women’s fashion has been torture. I read that somewhere about women having their lower ribs removed to make their waists tiny. Probably killed them in the end!
And if not removed then literally crushed by daily pulling the corsets tighter and tighter! Skeletons have been found with broken ribs only from fashion! A bullet in a skull I get but a broken rib for a better body!!!!
Hard to reconcile the beauty imperatives of ‘ronde’ and busty with a wasp waist without doing major internal damage!
I have read that, too. I’m not sure if it’s true or not. Given the state of surgery at the time, I imagine they could easily die of infection. They put earlier versions of corsets–18th century– on both boys and girls to improve their posture. But I agree about the torture–think foot binding and all sorts of horrors.
Yes, anyone voluntarily having surgery in those days must have been desperate to look gorgeous! Foot binding was disgusting, but extreme high heels are ridiculous and dangerous too 🙂
Yes, but not quite as permanent damage if you don’t wear them all the time. (I don’t wear them.) 🙂
Me neither, but unless you practice regularly, you’re liable to fall off 🙂
You girls make me giggle 😂😂🤗🤗
Men have made themselves look silly through the fashion ages, but I don’t think they have ever done themselves physical harm!
I think some women actually did!!!! And still do! 🤪😳
No one is that shape naturally. Poor idiots. At least they didn’t wear eight inch heels…
We are never satisfied. (K)
Ain’t that the truth! 😳
Everything old is new again. I like how it looks like the mannequin on the left looks like she’s about to tell off the one to her right. (Well, that’s what it looks like to me). 🙂
You’re right- that hand is ready to reach out and scold or slap 👋 🤭
