1899, French fashionable corsets! Plus ca change!

A fascinating 19th century French mail order catalogue depicting corsets. The line engraved illustrations show corsets for every occasion, also hip and bust enhancers, corsets that considerably reduce the waist size, corsets for nursing mothers with special openings, corsets for marriage, and a guide for measuring  all these.
