      For the women in the group. Be glad you didn't live in the early 1900's.

      Author and Italian coloratura soprano, Luisa Tetrazzini (1871- 1940) advised the following on page 10 in her book, "THE ART OF SINGING -- Public Domain, Published: 1909.

      "...the singer cannot wear tight corsets and should not wear corsets of any kind which come up higher than the lowest rib."

      The full text of the book, also written with Enrico Carouso who contributed an entire section, is available free of charge at:
