Historical Lingerie and Corset Dressing Sequence – Lace Embrace

Last week, I posted about my trip to the Lace Embrace Antique Corset Exhibition and Historical Fashion Show. Just before this year’s fashion show, Melanie Talkington, the founder of Lace Embrace, also did an antique lingerie dressing sequence typical of a woman during the Edwardian period. I filmed the entire thing on my iPhone, and now the video is up on YouTube to watch. It’s incredibly fascinating, and I hope you enjoy viewing this glimpse into the past as much I did.



Founder and Editor in Chief of The Lingerie Addict. I started TLA in a small studio apartment in 2008. Since then, it's become the leading lingerie blog in the world, and has been featured on the websites for Forbes, CNN, Time, Today, and Fox News. I believe lingerie is fashion too, and that every who wants it deserves gorgeous lingerie.

    Oh my goodness…this is awesome. Thank God we don’t have to do this anymore, but it’s so beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

      It’s really interesting to look at. As much as I love all things lingerie, I’m glad we don’t have to go through this daily ritual anymore either.
