Oddly Beautiful X-Rays Of Women Wearing Corsets In 1908

In 1908, Doctor O’Followell’s Le Corset (The Corset) explored and showcased through x-rays, the nasty things corsets can do on a woman's body.
These make me wince.

While others believe the images are just regular x-rays of women’s torsos with the corset painted on afterwards, many still agree that these x-rays are as real as the harmful health consequences corsets caused women.

  1. Chicks still damage themselves for the sake of vanity. High heels comes to mind. They also waste a lot of time to cast the illusion on something they're not with toxic makeup. I personally don't play those stupid games. With me, what you see is what you get. I have better things to do with my time than modify my being for the sake of looking 'better' to people I'm not even interested in, not that I'm worth a second look; anyway. I'm pretty average, and quite frankly; that's the way I like it. Looking too good can be a liability, in that everyone wants to own you.
