Summary[edit]

Description
English: Corset

1890-1900
Britain
Whalebone and cotton, with steel busk and back supports

By the late 19th century the harmful effects of wearing corsets were widely known. Manufacturers attempted to modify corset construction and produce more comfortable designs. This \'ventilated\' corset was suitable for sports and summer wear. The spaces in between the whalebone and cotton tapes allowed air to circulate and perspiration to evaporate.
