Re: Male corsetry for the bourgeoise.

I love pretty much anything to do with late 18th- to early 20th-century fashion, but am hardly an expert, so your otherwise useless knowledge is much appreciated. :D

One question: how did male corsets differ in design from fame ones?

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Quick explanation of bousingots, a la Col. Despard: "Les Bousingos was a group that included poets and artists, active during the July Monarchy. They sought to shock society through such pranks as strolling around naked in public or positioning a fake corpse in the streets, claiming it had just...

Re: Male corsetry for the bourgeoise.

I'd like to hear about medical corsetry, personally-- I've never even heard of it before now. Information on male corsetry would be just as appreciated, though!

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Omigosh, guys, this article: http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/8864 Specifically, the bit about Hugo. I'm laughing so hard right now I can't even breathe. When Victor Hugo wasn’t writing Les Misérables, he was miserable — from writer’s block. His cure? He instructed his servant to take away ...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Well, we're a giant family anyway. :wink: It's totally true, isn't it? Like, Marius is the sibling we all tease the bloody hell out of, but if someone else dare touch a hair on her head, we'd be to her defense in a heartbeat. :lol: Who would I be in this whole big, crazy, lovely dysfunctional famil...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Hmm, I think Alix is right, first she suggested "fluffy," rejected, then "petticoat," rejected, then finally, "garter," and as Marius had no idea what that was, he conceded. :wink: OH MY GOSH SOMEONE NEEDS TO WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT MARIUS BEING TOTALLY CLUELESS ABOUT WO...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

It's pretty adorable, huh? Yes, can't you just see Cosette rejecting "Napoleon," and Marius rejecting "fluffy petticoat"? :roll: What kind of a name is that ? Though I wouldn't mind a cat named Napoleon... I think her choices were Fluffy and Petticoat-- like, two different names...
