Back to the Show and Tell page for various items of eclectic interest such as a 1913 colour photograph of a demure young woman and two photos of the Sun Beachgirl Quest circa 1950.

Back to the First Principles page http://www.firstpr.com.au - where you can read of many technical, consumer advocacy things, but also some non-intellectual, aesthetic delights such as my 21 metre Sliiiiiiiiiinky and some photos from a trance techno dance-party in the forest.

I created these pages in the late 1990s and have not updated them much since then.  Many of the links are out out of date, but you might be able to pursue them via http://www.archive.org .

C & S Constructions http://www.candsconstructions.com in the UK make some beautiful, bright corsets.  They have a lively gallery, and an interesting history of corsetry by Pandora:


Bounteous woman!          Click to go to the C and S Constructions site for Pandoras history of corsetry!





The Right Place, also in Germany http://www.the-right-place.com makes their own corsets and sells those of a number of other prominent companies.  Their web site is a maddening frames-based thing which requires constant exploration and frequent trips to the home page to start again.  But by doing so, some intriguing images can be found in the galleries!  Click on these images for larger versions. Like quite a few of the images here, I have improved on the originals a little with judicious sharpening of the image (unsharp mask) and sometimes some correction for colours, dark-light range and gamma.

Axfords, as mentioned below is a widely respected corset maker.  But they also have some delicate contrivances such as these French Knickers and Frou Frou briefs.  They also have delicate bouffant slips and a range of white cotton bloomers which reach below the knee, including split bloomers.

7 - Links

Here are links to other web sites concerning corsetry . . . and resplendent women wearing dresses and petticoats. Ladies please choose a loving man who delights in brushing your hair!

In 2015, this Goddess 1304 bra has been out of production for quite a few years.  Its demise is lamented by women reviewing its supposed replacement, the Keira:

http://www.amazon.com/Goddess-Womens-Keira-Longline-Soft/dp/B003VD33L6

As someone with various body issues, a longline bra is essential for me to just feel good in my clothes on a daily basis. The Goddess 1304 was my old standby, but for some reason they stopped making it. This bra was touted as its replacement, and I have no idea why.

My old bra was the 1304 and I don't know why they quit making it.

From a now-defunct page: http://www.saveonlingerie.com/bras/nwt-venus-longline-soft-cup-lace-bra-7808-its-very-simlar-to-goddess-4023.html

Looking for the discontinued and popular Goddess longline bra style 1304? The style the fabric and the fit of this Venus bra # 7808 compares almost identically to the original Goddess bra.


Indeed, the Venus 7808 seems to be based on the same design:

Very similar to the Goddess 1304 bra
