"Here are two images from The Sunday Times (London) of 2 Mar 03.  They appeared in two articles but are clearly by the same designer and the corset-underpinnings seem obvious.  Not tight-laced, by any means, but nicely shaped. In the main article, it says:  
'Sport - vs - Sexy - ...don't despair - before you embark on the Atkins diet, remember that there are elements of the sexy look that most women can wear.  Corsets, for instance, bring a wayward figure into line and look best on curvy women.  They also look just as good worn under smart suits or with casual utility trousers...'"




"From the August 2006 edition of Elle - article on a series of parties named 'Night of the Masks.' The description seems rather interesting
for us corset lovers, and the good news is that the events are ongoing (as of September 2008)

"I came across the attached photo from the back cover of
 the November (2002) issue of Threads magazine. +
The referenced article is a detailed discussion of
constructing a bodice and corset."

Serge writes (2004):

There was a short article on corsetry, which led
 off with a photo of Dita Von Teese (left).
There was also a great ad featuring a
 Galliano corset dress (right).


From Shaggy:

"Here's a scan from the new Bizarre Magazine supplement. Readers
who sent in pictures had a chance to dress up and have a make over. "




Esquire (March 1957) featured a series of stylized pictures showing a corseted Tina Louise.

Wanda was kind enough to send us a copy to scan




"From the August 2006 edition of Elle -
 ...a picture from an article
featuring daughter-mother-relations - a corset is never mentioned,
  but the corset in the picture may stand for restricting and forming daughters by her mothers ..."

Text translation:

 Oh Mama!
Every woman has one, some are (such) themselves. 

Why the relationship with them is often so difficult?  And how it can be eased.
