So sweetly, alluring pretty! It's rare to find an image from the 50s featuring a corset, but I really love the notion of blending that Victorian element with the girl-next-door charm of the mid-twentieth century.

Wishing you a marvelous weekend,

There are quite a few images in these type of mid-century magazines (Flirt, Titter, Wink, Beauty Parade) that give a nod to Victorian glamour. I hope that, like stockings, corsetry will continue for a few more decades yet.
