I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.
Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc).
Handy, basic visual reference tool.
Then it becomes The Great War, inter-war, The War, The Cold War, the “holy shit not that much war this decade”, and The War on Terror.
$40 for a gently-worn authentic leather corset? Heck yeah.
Someone please do me a favor and buy this 20-inch leather Mystic City corset. Very strong leather, double-boned, gentle hourglass shape (somewhere between TImeless Trends and the CS-426), brand-new black ribbon laces. It’s 13” long at the front and back, so perfect for you long-torsoed people, but it’s cut high on the hips (9” on the sides), so comfy for average-length people, too. Shipping is free, unless you live in New Zealand or something, in which case we’ll work something out. Help me clear out my corset drawer and keep my bank account from looking so damn pitiful.
