I already know I'm going to get flack for this - so why am I writing it? Because I've been re-watching and re-watching Downton Abbey, and its on my mind.
I wish we still wore corsets.
You read that right. I love the way it makes bodies look, how it makes women walk. I know they couldn't breathe and some styles took it to an extremity, but there were those who loved them even as they wore them. To be perfectly candid, some of us could use a leetle more support than the bras on store shelves provide.
I think wearing a corset would make me feel more self-confident in my body; it could hide so many flaws. In addition, it is my opinion that today's styles do not flatter the female figure. Denim is just not that forgiving. When I watch shows like Downton or paintings from a more refined era, I just can't help but think that we could use a little more corseting in our fashion these days.
My sister-in-law just made her very own corset, pretty sure she doesn't wear it, but maybe I should start a new trend...So go ahead, shoot it down, but you ain't changing my opinion.
