X-ray of women in corsets, wtf! Why women still wear this shit!
Okay every time I see these, I literally cannot understand why people are always freaking out about it. I really don’t see anything super noteworthy about these x-rays??? Maybe I’m missing something, or maybe lots of people don’t know how to interpret an x-ray
Is everyone flipping their lid because they didn’t know that ribs are flexible? Surprise! Ribs are pretty flexible! If they weren’t, the organs located in them (heart, lungs) would have a hard time expanding rapidly and frequently. (They do that. By the way.)
The main points are that these x rays were originally used to demonstrate how much healthier the Edwardian corsets were than the Victorian “curved” corset. However, he kind of fudged the results. Firstly, he admitted that the Victorian corsets here were worn too high up on the body, causing more rib compression than what actually would occur. Secondly, he admitted that even though the woman wore her Victorian corset every day, she was actually in good health and had suffered no apparent ill effects. Thirdly, he wanted to also show the ribcage of a woman who didn’t wear corsets but couldn’t find one at the time of the study, meaning he didn’t actually have a constant. Fourthly, the xray is a 2d projection of a 3d object and that leads to distortion. Kind of a poor study, but with pretty pictures.
And why do women still wear them? For hundreds of reasons that you seem really ready to dismiss because you don’t want actually do research, do you?
Thank you! Finally someone who understands!
