Corsets

Oh, the shapely silhouette
That women in tight corsets get
Drawn tightly organs get displaced
As corsets are
Held fast 
And laced
What torture women must endure
As corsets with their stays insure
All belly fat will be concealed
And new hips and breasts revealed
So what, if women can't breathe or bend
It's the latest fashion trend

    ...and we are such slaves to fashion, at all costs (at least, in our younger years lol). Another good one, Jon :)

    they called them girdles in the 60's and today I think they have some fancy name like "body shapers." hahaha. Good one. I even have one of these things but they don't help much!!! i think I need an actual corsett like from the cowboy era!! To really make that waistline look amazing!

    Thank you Andrea. You don't want a corset. The stays are a killer.
