Corsets have a curious history. Western women of the upper class wore them for centuries. Women have protested the use of corsets, saying their restrictive nature is un-feminist. Still, people wear corsets to this day. This wikibook aims to provide information about the history, making and cultural significance of corsets. New contributors welcome!
