Wow, I can't believe women would put themselves through this. Check out the pictures on http://www.candsconstructions.com to see what I am talking about. Some of the waists on there are almost non-existent. I have heard that corset training is really bad for your abs, they'll have no strength left in them. If that's true, then that's a bad thing because your abs are the core of your body and without strong abs you'll have back problems and other difficulties.

I can't believe that there are women who still torture their bodies to obtain that hourglass figure. They are obsessed with the Scarlet Ohara look.

The hourglass isn't bad, it's the extreme hourglass that bothers me. I remember seeing in the Guinness Book of World Records that the tiniest waist was 13 inches around. The picture in the book was frightening.

corsetted lady - the smaller the waist the more desirous was the woman.  Too bad she couldn't breath, well then maybe she couldn't argue
Well I suppose then that with no ab muscles left and weak back you would be stuck in that corset!! I cannot imaging living every day with something that made you short of breath. No wonder they had fainting sofas.. They couldn't stay consious.

I know! Can you imagine living in the deep South with all that heat and humidity and being strangled by a corset? I'm so glad we live in modern times where there's air conditioning and sweatpants for when we're feeling puffy.

Egads! I could not imagine wearing something like that. It appears to be more an instrument of torture than a fashion accessory/necessity. You are right about the ab muscles as well.
