  • Okay, this may or may not help you, but it's worth a shot. Get a copy of The 1900 House (produced by BBC) either from your library or on Amazon. (It's worth owning - it's fun and interesting to watch.) It tells about different things in life in 1900 - one aspect they bring up is fashion (mainly women's) and corsets. (There are 4 episodes, not sure which one it's in.) It also tells of a book they read from that brings up how corsets and fashion of that era can be harmful, but ladies still wore them - so that may be part of your debate issue.

    If this doesn't help, well, I tried.
