HISTORICAL CORSETS


Here is a few examples of some historical corsets from the late nineteenth
century, from The Danish Collection of Costume at The National Museum in Brede Værk, that I once visited.

The corsets were not used as outerwear back then, but for the women to show more delicate when they were taking off their clothes. . .

Notice the meticulous details and just imagine how much work that went into these corsets.
If you are interested in historical costumes, take a closer look here to see the changing of styles from 1700-1980.
