Daughter of Shanghai

green Chinese brocade corsetI've never worn a corset, to be all trussed up doesn't seem very appealing to me. But not having a super-tiny 22" waist to fit into vintage couture is becoming an issue, and I realized that a girdle or corset was the reason. Women 60 and 70 years ago didn't just have tiny waists, they had help! It was all just an illusion, so I searched and found this pale green Chinese brocade corset by What Katie Did, suitable for a varity of cup sizes, and modestly priced for a handmade garment. (£119/$239)
