    I am SO HAPPY with this comment section. Really, the fact that people are starting to get educated about corsets and get upset over the misinformation that vogue spread feels really great.

    VOGUE already existed when corsets were still a daily item, this is so embarrassing for y'all lmao

  • Rachel Moore

    So "comfortable" spanx have replaced "painful" corsets? Ha. I've never heard anyone say spanx are comfortable in the least. And as someone who has personally worn and researched historical corsets I can say that they are actually very comfortable and supportive. Sheesh. The misinformation.

    Man this is sort of embarrassing for them considering how long vogue has been around. Especially considering how influential they are you would think they could hire an actual dress/corset historian. I wear corsets fairly frequently and am actually considering replacing my bra with one so I can say they are amazing and comfortable when you get a well sized corset. I am excited for the TheXvid costume and historical sewing community to react.

    I didn't know Vogue was branching out into fiction publishing as well as fashion.

    It’s so sad that Vogue can’t hire a proper Dress Historian and has to rely on incorrect Wikipedia articles for research.

    Is so sad that YT decided to hide the dislikes, I need to see the massacre on this absolute mess of a video

    Thanks Vogue for putting out this video and providing us the endless content for our favourite dress historians, at least they had a field day with this.

    Everything you need to know about the corset will not be found in this video. Please watch Bernadette Banner or Abby Cox if you want to know about the history of corsets/stays.

    It really disappoints me that Vogue is so influential and has created this video. They could have easily got amazing resources! If you can hold an entire party at the met then you can at least look at their resources and examine the proper history of the garment and explain the true facts about the corset and yet like so many others, they have added to the dangerous myths of the corset.

    I am bitterly disappointed that "Vogue", the go-to reliable source for fashion, has chosen to release this error-filled video. Did Anna Wintour sign off on this? If so, her reputation as well as that of "Vogue" has been flushed down the loo. Is there not a research department? Did not an editor review the video before release? It seems like a number of people at "Vogue" are responsible for this colossal failure. It will take a long while for the public to trust their "scholarship" again.

    Utter twaddle!! as a, non tight-laced, historical style corset wearer I'm ready to tell anyone willing to hear me that they are not only the most comfortable undergarment i have ever worn but more than that they are like wearing a cuddle, gentle, supportive, forgiving... Once you have found your fit it's like finding a life partner! This video is so full of s#

  • Daniel Blair

    How can you be a fashion company and get nearly EVERYTHING about this so wrong? This is just sad.

  • Sandra Soapbox

    I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of fashion historians suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

    I love wearing corsets. If you get one fitted to your measurements and made specifically for you, they are not uncomfortable at all.

  • Siansonea Orande

    Okay, so maybe Teen Vogue will come through with the actual journalism on this subject?
