This image gave me some pain. Can you imagine wearing a corset and having to tie it tight in order to get a tiny waist which was so popular around 1900?? I couldn't!! That's why I put the following quote on these pages:"Corsets! Too tight! Rather wear my camisole and my pantaloons. Sarah." I have added a vintage garter/stocking piece as well as more lace and a small doily. I don't think they had those fancy garter pieces when this picture was taken. I think these ladies either rolled their stockings or used elastic type garters.
Remember girdles??!!! Ouch!! I was really, really glad when pantihose became popular!! How about you??!!
