    just to clarify - no hate to the actresses, their experiences are valid - the question is though, why do their corsets feel like this and what could be done to avoid horror stories like these in the future?

      Having a properly fitted and properly made corset will stop this issue actor's have. Wearing a corset should not restrict you, it should enhance your natural assets. Also much like a pair of new shoes, corsets must be 'broken in' as it is referred to, by the person who will be wearing it. This ensures your body is comfortable with the corset and it is not such a massive shock when you put it on and then have to wear it for hours on end.

      @Anton De la Cruz I’m not going to argue with you because you honestly sound ridiculous. Yes, when talking about nazi accomplishments, you definitely need to mention that nazis are evil. Highly relevant. And this is not a discussion. I’m right, you’re not.

      @Jakob Berg no sir. The organs and the choice are not necessarily related. As i said, it depends on the perspective being discussed. If for example we talk about the autobahn, fanta, and the amazing recovery of post ww1 germany, we dont need to add a caveat such as 'but still, nazis were evil' all the time because it is not necessarily relevant.

      @Anton De la Cruz Okay, and I get that. But you can point out that corsets won’t shift your organs and still point out that the woman likely didn’t have a choice. There’s definitely a brushing off of that fact, regularly by fans of corsets.

    i think my favourite thing about this video is that it doesn't perfect-ify women in history. the images you showed made them look and feel real and human, and i love when there are photos like that. my favourites were the ones with the fencing, boxing and just women doing sport. i adore when we portray the past in a realistic manner.

    Okay, basically, if they are not comfortable, I would say listen to your body. But this is getting ridiculous. Corsets are not meant to
    asphyxiate you but to SUPPORT you. That's what bras do. Some bras hurt you too because they are NOT FITTED properly. That's the only reason. I am a girl and this stupid feminist crap is way too overboard.
    Though I would say that fitting a 17-inch corset over a naturally thin waisted woman (the 2015 Cinderella actress) is bad because she didn't need to wear that. She could have worn a corset that supported her body dimensions. But that's the only problem I have.
    Emma Watson doesn't have a very large waist anyways, maybe 22-23 inches? She could easily have worn a fitted corset and gotten a better gown

    The actors had to wear a corset dor only their performances, women in the past would wear it almost everyday of their lives. Next time is gonna be about how small shows didn't actually cause women's feet to not form properly.

    It strikes me that these actresses are not whiny complainers over exaggerating how uncomfortable it is to wear a corset, but rather the people putting them in the costumes have no idea how to safely fit a corset and probably laced them way too tight or something. I'm not a corset expert by any means but if they couldn't even sit down, clearly something was wrong 😅

    This video is shit and ya'll are ignorant. Did it ever ocurr to you that these women had to wear the corsets for a few hrs, whereas women in the past wore them for YEARS. Meaning they were groomed from a young age and were well used to them by now. History does not lie, and corsets of MANY types were created, and yes, some of them were harmful, some of them weren't so much. They're the whole reason fainting couches were invented. Like...because a couple of photoes show women in corsets moving you have to discredit all the other women who complain?

    Back then in Titanic I had the feeling that the mother was annoyed and tied it up on purpose, so to speak, as a "punishment" and not because you had to tighten it that way. Which is really bad, but the lady wasn't nice anyway.
    I think most actresses are overstating it to have nice anecdotes in interviews and not because they actually felt that way. A somewhat uncomfortable corset then becomes a corset that constricts your lungs. Otherwise it would be more than irresponsible from the costume department and they would certainly not accept that.

    Question to all you corset lovers and to those who actually know the history behind them.
    Would anyone consider a corset similar or exact to that of a brace in which people with, for instance, scoliosis would wear?
    I've seen many posts about how a back brace and corsets are practically the same thing, to which disagree, but that could just be me not knowing the history behind it so if anyone would be so kind to actually explain to me the similarities/differences??
    P.s I've wore a brace before I can give some details if anything😊

    Back in the day corsets weren't actually extremely tight but were used as push up bras for women. The modern day twist on the corset makes it seem like they were impossible to move around in but, historically, that is so inaccurate.

    Corsettes aren't actually uncomfortable. There's different kinds. The kind they're thinking of are for training(reshaping) your body and organs. That was a short lived trend. Normal corsettes are just .. tight. That's it.

    And let's not forget that besides corsets being made to fit the woman body, they were used to wear them since young and the corset adapts to the body too as they are growing, so they are used to it wearing them like it's a normal piece of clothing. The actresses are not used to wear corsets so, obviously, they are gonna find them uncomfortable to wear it. Not saying that they were 100% confortable at the time but its very different when you are used to wear something your whole life and when you try something the first time.

    The corsets aren't the problem. If they are made perfectly for a person, they can climb mountains in it. It's this era which makes them look bad as they want to look down on the early ages ITS HORRIBLE THE FASHION IN THE 18 AND 19 HUNDREDS ARE SOMETHING TO LEARN FROM. The fashion industry of the movies don't make them properly for the actresses. Most celebrities exaggerate like hell but some tell the truth.

    After all, they need to sensationalise the movie in order to sell it, which otherwise the majority of people wouldn't go to see it. It has become a mantra with Hollywood actresses, somehow to demonstrate their dedication and acting skills.
    Yet millions of women around the world invest thousands of dollars in the modern version of the corset, which is the fat reducing waist band. And no one seems to be complaining about that, or calling it represive because of the toxic male chauvinist beauty standards for women!

    "So I've researched a lot about corsets in Victorian and Edwardian periods recently"
    "Ah, they were horrible, weren't they? 😔"
    "Actually it was a very normal thing, it was just like bras"
    "Yeah, it's terrible 😔"
    "No, they were actually normal, women could normally function in them"
    "Poor girls, getting used to this terrible torture instrument 😔"
    "But it wasn't a torture instrument"
    "Indeed, they didn't realize they were being tortured for centuries😔"
    "Women could literally do sports in corsets, it wasn't hurtful..."
    "Yes, they didn't know how hurt they were 😔"
    "If they are done properly for your body corsets don't hurt you"
    "And that's exactly what they didn't use do 😔"

    I don't know much but u can see the women in history also had a very obviously squeezed thin waist its unnatural but how come they could wear it everyday? Well maybe its they had to wear it everyday after all and they LIVED in it. There were women in china i think who used to have very very small feet, as small as a 5 yrs old or something, how come they'd have such small feet even when they grew up? Its bcz they'd wear reallyy tight shoes from childhood to never let the feet grow out of that size as small feet were considered attractive in their tribe. There were also women who'd wear bangles like loops in their necks to achieve a long neck...just bcz they had to do all this n live like that doesn't mean it was easy.

    This ”I am lady I hate corsets you can’t move”-thing is so dumb. I understand that they’re trying to make women nowdays feel better about ourselves, but it shoots hundreds of years of women’s history in the foot. By saying “you can’t move in a corset”, you’re also invalidating the women who worked so hard, wearing corsets every day.

    As someone that had a corset-like medical brace to try and fix my scoliosis (which is far more uncomfortable, especially my second one) I'm solidly in the mindset that corsets, when used properly are super comfortable. Key note: when used properly. It's sad that these women had such bad experiences with an amazing garment all becuase of the movie industry's want to make everything sexy to the point of pain and discomfort.
