    Corsets created the heaving cleavage. 🤔
    Victorian guys strapped their women into them and told them to go for jog around the park and then enjoyed the results.😜👍
    Pneumonia, rickets, broken ribs! Oh please stop complaining.. 😳🥵🤏🤣👍

    reeeeeally hate when people talk about how awful wearing a corset was when they really mean tightlacing, which is even stated to have been practiced by a small percentage of women

  3. Michael T says

    You sure you have enough ads in this video?

  4. Frazier says

    Actually, history proved this wrong. Corsets actually gave similar support to a bra and weren't very restricting. its actually compared to a scoliosis brace and is extremely similar. I know that because I have scoliosis and wear a brace. In fact, corsets had health benefits,

  5. Lesleigh Hart says

    This is just so sad. A pregnancy corset wtf.

    Every British person backing away from their walls rn. I really really hope my house was built after the Victorian era

  20. Haley Hirning says

    20:26 At least they got the fact about wearing a chemise right 🙄
    (edit) And did you know that Victorians and Edwardians often faked their waists? They edited photos and paintings to make it look like their waists were smaller.

  28. Greg Appelgren says

    I was born in 1965. I still remember my Mother purchasing a large container of Lead Soldiers for me probably 1971-72, when I was about 14 years old I set them all up across tree branches and would shoot them down with my .22 cal rifle. The ground below claimed them all. I should go find them here 40 years later with my metal detector. I can picture the current owners of that house wondering what the heck I’m doing in their yard.

  29. SimmerDown Now says

    Can't wait to see an actress in the way future complaining about wearing a bra for a movie like they do with corsets

    or a movie scene were the girl takes off a bra and theres deep imprints on her shoulders and ribs 🤣

  31. Britney says

  35. Coco says

    "Yet one thing will probably never disappear, the temptation to comform to an ideal of beauty, whatever the cost." And corsets and tiny unhealthy waists are becoming a trend again. We'll never learn from our mistakes.
