Corsets - a very comprehensive collection of information about foundation garments. The site is generously illustrated, so it may be NSFW.

Hahaha, nice Flapjax, normally I hate wordplay like that, but this time I laughed

Yeah, NSFW in a Sears catalog kind of way.

Not my cuppa tea, but damn that is one comprehensive corset website.

That's some old school engineering. Steel & whalebone, indeed.

I like the way they arranged the big block of links to be in an exaggerated coke bottle shape.

Most of this site's (admirable) research is devoted to 20th century girdles. For the old-school stuff, go here (completely SFW)

To see what corsetmakers get up to these days, go here (mostly SFW; occasionally notsomuch)

Saved for viewing later. A lot of my female friends (and girlfriend) love corsets.

Somehow you never forget those Sears catelogues from when you were a kid.

And there's always Staylace, which has a ton of content in a circa 1997 design.
