Corsets Exhibition at The Museum of Costume

Corsets Exhibition at The Museum of Costume

It might seem a corset of a designer who would like to highlight for its originality, but isn’t one of time. Corsets This type seems to be that they were common throughout Europe for centuries 16th and 17TH. Aptly called”corses-coraza” o “Iron bodies”they are surprised by its oppressive aspects and resemble instruments of torture. What horror.

Assumptions that are shuffled on their use, placed them as objects of protection or orthopedic correction, since it is difficult to admit that voluntarily women had resorted to these gadgets to be more beautiful. Two examples that reflect the tyranny of fashion on the feminine silhouette.

These pieces, coming from the Museum Le Secq des Tournelles, the town of Rouen, in France, have exposed a few days in the Costume Museum and they will be until March 20, 2007, in the showcase treasures from the past, covering, with exceptional quality parts, a period of the history of clothing that just remains.
