Yay! I finished the prototype/sample for the new, adjusted, and improved Redthreaded Victorian standard corset! This corset is intended for reenactment, cosplay, living history, or theatre where a historical, period look is required. It is appropriate for crinoline through bustle era, and features steel boning, English coutil, and front busk with underlap.
You seriously don't think women had to fight for what they wanted to wear in the early 1900s when the feminist movement was gaining notice (and yes, it did start before then). You clearly need to do some research if you honestly think dress code was never an issue until now. Next you're going to be saying the right to an abortion was not an issue until today- it was very much something women fought for. You're one of those people who shuts a rape victim down because 'some people have it worse'.
