About
Victorian fashion is unlikely to become popular again. Corsets were in style during the second half of the 1800s and were forced on the waists of girls as young as 5 years old! Tied too tight and the wearer might not be able to sit or breathe, and many sustained broken ribs. More fascinating truths about those living during the Victorian era, including the opium-based drugs used to keep children calm and prison-like schools, will inspire thankfulness in today's readers! Full-color illustrations offer colorful commentary on this buttoned-up time period as well as supplementary historical details.
