As Steele writes in The Corset: A Cultural History, "Behind the dress reformers' belief that menswear was intrinsically superior to women's clothing was the assumption that men themselves were more rational than  longgown dress   women."

Wasn't it possible, at least for some percentage of women, that a life with corsets was superior to a life without, and that they were reliable witnesses to their own feelings and experiences on the matter? Could this be one of the reasons foundation garments, from  christmas costume  corsets to girdles to shapewear, have never quite disappeared, even if they have gone underground, as it were, becoming hidden elements of dress?

Tellingly, men's corsetry is almost entirely left out of the "corset debate," despite their historically documented use for the military, in fine men's dressing, on the stage (more than a few male performers wouldn't be caught dead under stage lights without one) and of course, for personal expression and pleasure.

This speaks, no doubt, to anxieties about male identity, perhaps   corset skirts sets  once the focus on the corset as a feminine article became so entrenched in the collective consciousness.

No, the focus of the "debate" remains fixed on familiar anxieties about women, namely notions of female frailty and women's dangerous sexuality. Both ideas have passed down from century to century, from the preposterous "wandering womb" theory   underbust corset   originating in the work of Plato and taught right up to the modern era of medicine, to the antiquated but oft-taught idea that women need masters, do not have the capacity for rational thought, and should not speak up in public spaces or exert public authority, lest we all be led astray: Eve and the apple; Pandora and her box.
