Many women have a problem, by speech to large meeting. This problem is a serious democratically problem. I know as a corset can improve the self-confidence. So if you can make corset which particularly improve self-confidence of woman, you can solve the democratically problem.
The idea with these pages, are make a collection of the old corset pattern, from the patents.
But the great part of corset patents are detailed particulars, in the borders of the absurdity. And many patents are replaced by better patents. A better idea is list of problems by corsetry and the list of solutions of every problem. This idea is fine but impossible. This page only can been a start.
