Corset | 1890-1900. This type of design was known as a 'ventilated' corset and was suitable for sports and summer wear. The spaces in between the whalebone and cotton tapers were intended to allow air to circulate, enabling the skin to 'exhale' and perspiration to evaporate. This was one of the many 'health' innovations endorsed by manufacturers of late nineteenth century underwear.
