Fashion and sex have always enjoyed a very close relationship. This history of corsetry and body sculpture shows how this phenomenon is closely bound up with sexual self-expression. It shows how the use of the corset rejected the role of the passive, maternal woman; in Victorian times it was seen by many as a scandalous threat to the social order.
