Battle of the bulge

The evolution of shapewear — from corsets to girdles

April 29, 2012
The OBSERVER

Women who feel good about how they look often find themselves walking with an extra bounce and exude more confidence. From hair, skin and her wardrobe, most women are on the lookout for the latest trend or trick to help create a fashionable look. This has been the case for as long as anyone can remember. Two recent columns "Keeping beautiful since 1921" and "Fashion must haves for spring and summer 2012," depicted fashions from nearly 100 years ago from an old McCall's magazine and compared them to what is the rage today in 2012. Classic styles have always been lovely to behold, but they had something underneath that was most necessary. Various undergarments, specifically the corset, helped create the image. Even today, there are choices and options to achieve the desired look, all of which most definitely include a "battle of the bulge."
