In the XVII century women corsets started to be made of more elastic material – it was whalebone. Nevertheless, the relief of the noble women gave way to a new chagrin. With Catherine de Medici participation there were appeared a new preference for a 33 cm waist! And it is a good thing that soon corsets ceased to be so popular. This is associated to fashion trends of the late XVIII and early XIX centuries, when dresses with high waists became more relevant. In the end of the XIX century first brassieres appeared. At the same time, the dressmakers started to modify, improve, and create new types of corsets, including a novelty of the XX century, which allowed to model female figure in the shape of the letter S.
