“It Is Justly Popular”

I’m not feeling so hot this evening, a condition I attribute to bad scrambled eggs.  While I kick back and watch Juno or read The Circle (haven’t decided yet), here’s someone else’s writing for you to think about:

“How Wearing a Corset Every Day (and Night!) Changed this Woman’s Life,” by Grace Gold.

The supposedly liberated woman of today often pines for one aspect of our great-grandmothers’ era, says Chrisman-a time when naturally full hips and a fleshy flush of health were revered, and the waist was considered the most erogenous zone of all.

Might the corseted Victorian woman have been free in ways that the modern woman will never be?
