Emma Watson to be featured in a remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 2017, gave up on corsets so she could remain mobile for her movie role.
How can she NOT know (or for that matter, fashion reporters not know) YET IN 2016, THAT CUSTOM CORSETS, well seasoned and properly fit — permit almost perfect torso mobility. One would not want to precipitously bend and bend again at the precise waistline: that will tend to weaken the busk and snap it. Other than that there is almost no limit to torso mobility.
For best mobility, choose spiral steels for your boning, get the right fit, take your time in getting used to wearing it and lace down slowly, and lo! You like many of our clients and me, can go dancing the night away from ballroom to hip hop, wearing your corset — with nary a rip in sight and nary a cramp in torso.
There are even times that you might get the perfectly mobile corset by choosed wisely and well from pre-made corsets. CHECK OUT OUR HUGE WINTER INVENTORY SALE TO SEE IF SOMETHING MIGHT WORK FOR YOU (AMAZING PRICES!)
It’s clear that mobility while corseted is fact–and has been for eons. See the description of author Sarah Chrisman who rides a Victorian bicycle miles while snugly corseted, in Victorian Secrets (published 2013).
Who can answer why folks continue to spout such nonsense about the corset?
Best I can come up with, is our Puritanical reversion against sex and sexuality, plus woman’s body revealed (not to mention self determination when she chooses to wear a corset and how tightly she chooses to lace; no one is in charge of that other than herself!).
HAPPY WARM CORSETED SEASON TO ALL!
