Antique Corsetry - Birmingham Museum Collections

The Birmingham Museum Collections Centre holds a few delightful antique corsets, which I visited on my 30th birthday back in 2012. With such a whirlwind of stuff happening around that time I failed to properly post about the visit! So here are just a few of the details I found most interesting (my notes can be read in my diary - link for new subscribers).
