I'm not really interested in fashion. But I do love history and accuracy in portraying history. You are great! I mean I'm not yet 70 but from what I've seen you are absolutely right there spot on accurate. Great job and I'm watching more than I thought I would hehe. Also your look is always perfect for the theme. Perhaps I'm prejudiced because my mother was a vet of the Navy during WWII (so was my dad but we're talking women's fashion here) and she was partial to hair like you wear yours and red lipstick. She always wore red lipstick and never changed.

I hate the Phantom of the Opera Film. It is so diffrent from the original musical, in a bad way. I watched the musical many times and the outfits and the singers are so much better. The lyrics are diffrent, which fits better in the rhythm. I just hate the musical into film thing. I just don't get why. Funfact: There was a cats "film" before the actual film, which feautred one at this time the actual musical cast. They did the musical without the guests and filmed it. I actually have the DvD. And I did a costume of Christines Mask ball outfit, when I was younger. And I sung "Think of me" with my sing teacher.

I think in gone with the wind the corset lacing scenes are intended more for emphasizing scarlett's vanity especially since after she had Bonnie there is a scene where she lament's her waist size. This probably sparked the trope

I think that at least part of the the problem with the lacing in Anna Karenina could be caused by the way she was wearing it. The imae you showed has the corset over top of the bum roll and crinoline, which would add volume to the hips and cause the wrinkling on the sides.

*insert haunting panpipe music* I'm surprised moulin rogue didn't make the list. I'm also really surprised anyone outside of australia has heard of picnic at hanging rock. Every schoolchild in australia has been made to watch it at some point. White was a big theme in picnic at hanging rock to emphasize the whole 'purity and innnocence' vibe so i've got a feeling having all white corsets was more about the asthetics than anything

I agree about the whole aesthetic thing in Picnic at Hanging Rock, also I went and rewatched the corset scene and they aren’t really lacing them tightly at all, it seems pretty normal to me. Also a lot of the the adults in the film have very prominent silhouettes and are obviously fitted with nicely shaping corsets.

About sleeping in a corset. In the American "Little House" series of books, classed as children's books but also read by adults, at one time the main character, Laura, mentions that her sister, Mary, sleeps in her corset although Laura herself just can't do it. These books are semi-autobiographical, and were written by Laura Ingalls Wilder about her own life, so it seems unlikely she would make up something like that. If you want to look up the reference, I believe it is in the book called "Little Town on the Prairie." I think you might enjoy this book and the next one in order, "These Happy Golden Years." Laura talks a lot about her clothes and those of her sister, Mary, and gives a lot of interesting details about them.

The terms "Edwardian" and "Victorian" do not mean much when talking about the USA -- they refer to monarchs and their reigns! LOL! you should identify maybe by our Presidents? or other markers of time? often "Edwardian" is called "WWI era" here.

Sadly, corsets often get ordered and are not ordered from companies that focus on historical accuracy. Then there are always the actors who are specific about the shape they want to be seen in and the costume designer can’t force the issue. These are reasons I moved back to the Midwest and went back to school in the sciences.

They should get a bonus point for wearing a chemise under the corset/stay. Or lose a point of they don't. Either way, tight-lacing a corset on bare skin should definitely lose points. 😄

But any next time check it out. With my unprofessional eye, and mere male gaze, I thought that drama was very nice. They also got the hair, period correct I think.

In the movie mirror mirror with Julia Roberts There’s a scene where they’re tightening a corset with this big ridiculous contraption But that was sort of the evil queens thing (tight corsets, ridiculous dresses) but they could of done it better But at least she had underwear and not just naked
leyly Mês atrás
For Gone With the Wind: it is true that the corsets were grossly inaccurate in shape, but the tightlacing was done because Scarlett as a whole is a very vain character. In the books, there's a whole bunch of bragging about a 16-inch waist or something and also about how she has to get her waist down back to a 16 after she has Bonnie. There's also a scene where the excuse for not having babies is that she wants to keep her figure slim.

Hero! I do a bunch of community theatre plays and musicals, and the theatre troupe that I do a majority of my work with is a stickler for historical fashion accuracy. I played Ms. Lovett from Sweeney Todd and wore a corset. I was able to dance, sing, and basically just to physically hard things to do all while wearing a corset (or I guess it was a stay? It took place in 1875 so correct me if I’m wrong) and it was just fine! I never felt like I couldn’t breath or like I was being squeezed too tight. My only complaint is that it forced me to keep proper posture xD which I guess isnt a very big deal but I’m a sloucher so my back and shoulders did get a bit tired.

He would be in a truck with other Indians, it kinda threw me off... (No, not trying to be racist, The move is ment to be historically correct but...That single part wasnt historically correct.)

The first time I heard the corset tightening trope was from Laura Ingalls Wilder's books, which was supposedly a first-hand account. (This is a really popular, semi-autobiographical series about a 19th century US settler family.) I believed the corset tropes for a long time because of this. Thoughts?

That still of the girls in a row tight lacing eachothers corsets reminds me of my mom and her sisters having to help eachother get their jeans zipped. Back in the 70s, when super high waisted skin tight flare jeans were fashionable, my mom and her sisters would each take turns lying flat on the bed sucking in their stomachs while the other one took a metal clothes hanger looped through the end of the zipper and pulled and pulled until they were closed enough to quickly button them.

If you ever feel like branching into TV, I'd be very curious to hear your thoughts on Deadwood's costumes, or more specifically Alma Garret's 1870s dresses and accessories. I can't say for certain, but I feel like most of her silhouettes are pretty period accurate.

Hello, I am an Australian costume person. In defence of the Hanging Rock issue of fabric whiteness, historically we wore lots of white and other light boring colours because the white people got really hot, and shipping cost for nice fabric was (and still is) expensive. In general, our Victorian/Edward fashion has always been blander and more conservative.

I love Picnic at Hanging Rock and was wondering about that as well. Also the adults in the film have very prominent silhouettes and appear to be wearing well structured corsets, so I wonder if it’s a deliberate choice to have the young students’s be less shaping since they’re younger?

The reason why the pirates of the Caribbean corset likely seemed “off” when you were rating it was probably because in the movie, this corset is described as being a brand new design from France (I.e. modern for the era) whereas her undergarments were likely still the same ones she’s been wearing for a while (I.e. NOT modern for the era). This is likely why the timelines are mashing for you and not lining up. Just wanted to point out that this might be as intended! :)

I remember seven brides for seven brothers having at least one scene that heavily featured several women in their underpinnings, and I remember being so excited as I always was when corsets were featured in a film, but if I went back now I bet I'd probably be disappointed xD

2:29 excellent shout-out to Hattie McDaniel 🙌 You've turned me into a corset apologist. I used to assume that corsets were just miniature torture chambers and it didn't help that in one of my history classes in middle school we were told about organ damage from tight-lacing. I scolded a co-worker once when she told me she was thinking of getting a waist trainer. Now I'm low-key considering getting a corset to wear every once in a while; it might help with my posture and for some reason I like the sensation of wearing clothes that are tight around the ribs but I don't like the aesthetic, so maybe a corset could be a good way to work around that.

I don’t know whether young, healthy, rich women typically had maids tie their corsets or not, but if they did, it was purely out of laziness. You absolutely do not need to be strong or especially flexible to tight lace the fuck out of yourself on your own. I used to do it all the time, and I eventually lost interest in it, but it was drastically easier and a lot less painful then most modern people imagine. There’s no need for the person lacing you to lean back and grunt while you desperately hold on to a doorframe, even if they are lacing you very tight. Only someone who is extremely inflexible would need help to tight lace themselves. Don’t get me wrong. It is definitely easier to have someone else do it even if you’re perfectly able bodied, but it’s still relatively easy to do it by yourself.
