The Body: Fashion and Physique

A very cool exhibit I visited while in the city for Easter at The Museum at FIT. They always have the most wonderful exhibits and they are free to the public. For anyone who loves fashion, it is a must stop when in the city. 

These were very interesting and what a wonderful item for those breast cancer survivors. 

This was beautiful but I can't imagine very comfortable, I don't think a corset would be for me!  
It seems many folks in the 19th century were pretty short. These dresses would be perfect for my height!  

This red dress by Christian Siriano was just gorgeous. He is really a talented designer.  

I remember Chromat from watching The Fashion Fund, very unique designs.  

I just cannot image wearing one of these, they must have been thrilled to take them off once they got home!  

This dress was so beautiful.  
A corset for a pregnant woman for sure could not have been comfortable.  

Yes, the breathing must have been an issue wearing these corsets.  

What a lovely dress!  

An 18 inch waist is just unreal - but this dress is just gorgeous!  

I think being a woman in the 19th century must have been quite difficult.  

Another lovely garment, the girdle, I still cannot imagine wearing this either.  

A girdle made of rubber is just wrong. Totally wrong!  

I had no idea Lane Bryant was founded in 1904, that is pretty cool they are still in business in 2018.  

Dior dresses are just so gorgeous in person. They are the ultimate girl gown.  

Such a fun mini-dress with great colors!  

This was a lovely exhibit and it is closing on May 5th so try to pop in and enjoy it if you can.
