    Here’s the thing about Phantom of the opera... they use corsets excessively in the movie where structured bodices are used in the stage musical. In the musical, there is only actually 1 scene where she actually wears just what I would call a corset, and it is part of her costume in the opera she’s in. Also in the movie, what Christine wears during the “point of no return” scene, is way over s3xualized compared to what she wears in the musical. Please look at pictures, it’s very different

    You should review the corsets in the “always be a bride” scene in 7brides for 7 brothers! No tight lacing scene, and they seem to actually give them the proper shape.

    in the pirates of the Caribbean, i personally excuse the context because it was supposed to be the latest fashion of london so maybe the maids didnt know how tight to lace the corset. i believe it was implied that it was laced too tight on accident or maybe the corset itself was made for someone smaller.

    Ooh so fun story, my costume teacher at the time was one of the costume cutters on picnic at hanging Rock and she said that every time the design team moved toward a more historical silhouette (even the smallest of bum pads ) they were shut down and told that it wasn't the look they were going for.... so you obviously can't expect too much

    Jane Eyre the novel. You might enjoy learning that Charles Dickens said he didn't need to read Jane Eyre, had absolutely no interest. Yet, based on what he'd heard about Jane Eyre, that it was a first person novel from a child's point of view, he then wrote David Copperfield. David Copperfield is through the entire book a victim of his circumstances, with interludes of happiness, until near the end when he finally is successful taking his own action.
    Jane Eyre on the other hand is front and center throughout Charlotte Bronte's novel. She was intentionally portrayed as a skinny, not very attractive nothing (Eyre= air) and yet in every scene she is the master of her world. A favorite scene is when she's out walking and meets Rochester for the first time. She is out walking on his estate, working for him; he is on a large horse, is physically imposing, deep voice, accompanied by a 150 lb dog - yet when his horse slips on the ice and he hurts his foot her first words are to offer to help him, which she does. Unlike Copperfield, she is the center of every scene in the novel - even if, in the context of society and events she is subservient to everyone else. It's brilliant. After her aborted wedding, when she leaves everything and walks away it's such a powerful assertion of independence I can only think that Bronte herself must have done this herself. (And Dickens must have been an abused child - probably everyone was. But he never rose above it, made it a strength. Charlotte Bronte did.) I love Dickens, and Austen, but Jane Eyre is the most empowering (English language) novel of the 19th century.

    I'm not really interested in fashion. But I do love history and accuracy in portraying history. You are great! I mean I'm not yet 70 but from what I've seen you are absolutely right there spot on accurate. Great job and I'm watching more than I thought I would hehe. Also your look is always perfect for the theme. Perhaps I'm prejudiced because my mother was a vet of the Navy during WWII (so was my dad but we're talking women's fashion here) and she was partial to hair like you wear yours and red lipstick. She always wore red lipstick and never changed.

    I hate the Phantom of the Opera Film. It is so diffrent from the original musical, in a bad way. I watched the musical many times and the outfits and the singers are so much better. The lyrics are diffrent, which fits better in the rhythm. I just hate the musical into film thing. I just don't get why. Funfact: There was a cats "film" before the actual film, which feautred one at this time the actual musical cast. They did the musical without the guests and filmed it. I actually have the DvD. And I did a costume of Christines Mask ball outfit, when I was younger. And I sung "Think of me" with my sing teacher.

    I think in gone with the wind the corset lacing scenes are intended more for emphasizing scarlett's vanity especially since after she had Bonnie there is a scene where she lament's her waist size. This probably sparked the trope

    I think that at least part of the the problem with the lacing in Anna Karenina could be caused by the way she was wearing it. The imae you showed has the corset over top of the bum roll and crinoline, which would add volume to the hips and cause the wrinkling on the sides.

    I'm surprised moulin rogue didn't make the list. I'm also really surprised anyone outside of australia has heard of picnic at hanging rock. Every schoolchild in australia has been made to watch it at some point.
    White was a big theme in picnic at hanging rock to emphasize the whole 'purity and innnocence' vibe so i've got a feeling having all white corsets was more about the asthetics than anything

      I agree about the whole aesthetic thing in Picnic at Hanging Rock, also I went and rewatched the corset scene and they aren’t really lacing them tightly at all, it seems pretty normal to me. Also a lot of the the adults in the film have very prominent silhouettes and are obviously fitted with nicely shaping corsets.

    About sleeping in a corset. In the American "Little House" series of books, classed as children's books but also read by adults, at one time the main character, Laura, mentions that her sister, Mary, sleeps in her corset although Laura herself just can't do it. These books are semi-autobiographical, and were written by Laura Ingalls Wilder about her own life, so it seems unlikely she would make up something like that. If you want to look up the reference, I believe it is in the book called "Little Town on the Prairie." I think you might enjoy this book and the next one in order, "These Happy Golden Years." Laura talks a lot about her clothes and those of her sister, Mary, and gives a lot of interesting details about them.

    Sadly, corsets often get ordered and are not ordered from companies that focus on historical accuracy. Then there are always the actors who are specific about the shape they want to be seen in and the costume designer can’t force the issue. These are reasons I moved back to the Midwest and went back to school in the sciences.

    They should get a bonus point for wearing a chemise under the corset/stay. Or lose a point of they don't. Either way, tight-lacing a corset on bare skin should definitely lose points. 😄

    For Gone With the Wind: it is true that the corsets were grossly inaccurate in shape, but the tightlacing was done because Scarlett as a whole is a very vain character. In the books, there's a whole bunch of bragging about a 16-inch waist or something and also about how she has to get her waist down back to a 16 after she has Bonnie. There's also a scene where the excuse for not having babies is that she wants to keep her figure slim.

    Hero! I do a bunch of community theatre plays and musicals, and the theatre troupe that I do a majority of my work with is a stickler for historical fashion accuracy. I played Ms. Lovett from Sweeney Todd and wore a corset. I was able to dance, sing, and basically just to physically hard things to do all while wearing a corset (or I guess it was a stay? It took place in 1875 so correct me if I’m wrong) and it was just fine! I never felt like I couldn’t breath or like I was being squeezed too tight. My only complaint is that it forced me to keep proper posture xD which I guess isnt a very big deal but I’m a sloucher so my back and shoulders did get a bit tired.

    The first time I heard the corset tightening trope was from Laura Ingalls Wilder's books, which was supposedly a first-hand account.

    That still of the girls in a row tight lacing eachothers corsets reminds me of my mom and her sisters having to help eachother get their jeans zipped. Back in the 70s, when super high waisted skin tight flare jeans were fashionable, my mom and her sisters would each take turns lying flat on the bed sucking in their stomachs while the other one took a metal clothes hanger looped through the end of the zipper and pulled and pulled until they were closed enough to quickly button them.
