Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Moulin Rouge/Corsets
- Hi!The corsets made breathing more difficult. The ladies could only take in shallow breaths and this led to fainting spells and other restrictions on anything that required physical exhertion. The "consumption" was more than likely tuberculosis which is a horrible infection.The disease can ravage the body. TB is still a big problem for society as there are a number of drug resistant strains and people don't follow the full medical treatment schedules, in turn, creating even more drug resistant strains of TB. I hope this helps.Best regards,Ray Jones AKA Bunkeybear----- Original Message -----From: Liberty CampbellSent: Wednesday, August 07, 2002 6:08 PMSubject: [TheCostumersManifesto] Moulin Rouge/CorsetsHello friends. I have been studying about corsets lately. They are quite fascinating. I have read that they caused many health problems.Ok, so here is my question. In the movie 'Moulin Rouge', Satine has consumption and I was wondering if the tight laced corsets she wore had anything to do with it. I know it's kind of a weird question, but I was just curious. =)Liberty aka Saoirse
