Underwear: From corsets to bullet-bras and back from Victoria and Albert Museum on Vimeo.
Very interesting. I'm trying to decide what's more disturbing - all the ways women's bodies have been manipulated into presenting a certain appearance, or the presenter's final comment that one is just expected to 'be that shape'. Not really different from what's gone before, but more difficult to achieve because a woman is now expected to make her body achieve a fashionable shape without the use of underwear.
Ummm ... I have to admit, I'd never heard of a "bullet bra." Her explanation is definitely not what I was expecting. I was thinking James Bond and a gun hidden in the enemy agent's bra. LOLI don't know how you find these videos, but I always love them.
