1890's exotic dancers--submitted by Katie B.

Don't worry, these aren't too risque by today's standards.

But you might notice some other things regarding today's standards...

  1. All of these women are wearing nasty body squishing corsets... they have waists beyond realistic measurements. The cool thing is though, NONE OF THEM are a size 3. Guaranteed. They all have curvy hips, and they do not have the tiny arms that women strive for these days. They are all curves! I love it!

  2. Right--those corsets!!! Bloody awful. I think it shows that we aren't looking at a time when society's standards for beauty didn't matter. They obviously still did. I think it shows how there is nothing eternal or timeless or universal in beauty standards.

  3. I think it's funny that they are more clothed than many girls out on the street these days.But those corsets are evil.
