Corsets and Girdles- Oh My!

As a curvy girl (and singer who likes Gilbert and Sullivan) who has used corset and girdles for various occasions, I could appreciate the cartoon above that I found on This was taken from a page on "stout" women and corsets. I was surprised to read how prevalent curvy gals were, even in the 30s when I thought everyone was tiny, tiny, tiny and flat-chested. Perhaps I am just biased because I can never find vintage clothes in my size when I go shopping...

Thanks to the Glamour Daze blog for turning me on to the corsetiere site in this post.
