Actually, I’m thinking about reviving the whole corset trend. I’d be ok with having someone lace me up so tightly that I couldn’t breathe in order to look like I had a thin waist. No pain, no gain, right? I mean it’s not that different from control top panty hose or body slimmers. They just look a lot cooler. I’m all for reviving petticoats and those cute little parasols as well.
If we all wore corsets and big hoop skirts instead of body slimmers, we wouldn’t have to worry about things like the waistband rolling down at inopportune moments, that line on your back and thighs where the spandex ends and the flesh begins to overflow, or trying to get everything off quickly in the event that you are about to pee your pants.
Instead of wearing the bra to knee girdle, we could just squeeze everything down (much like a tube of toothpaste) and hide it underneath the flowing, feminine skirt. This would eliminate the awful muffin-top trend that has arisen since the low rise jean has become so popular as well.
