Fashion and Fetishism : Corsets, Tight-Lacing & Other Forms of Body-Sculpture Paperback / softback

Description

Fashion and sex have always enjoyed a very close relationship.

This history of corsetry and body sculpture shows how this phenomenon is closely bound up with sexual self-expression.

It shows how the use of the corset rejected the role of the passive, maternal woman; in Victorian times it was seen by many as a scandalous threat to the social order.
