The Costume Collection of the Maryland Historical Society is a site the serious historian and costumer needs to spend time with. I just read two articles that gave me information I had wondered about. Industrial Corsetry gives insight into the development of the manufacturing of that apparel prior to the development of the ready-made garment industry. There are several good pictures of different types of corset.
