Women in Corsets

Their circulation may be getting cut off, but our hearts are beating faster

It’s an interesting dichotomy … the more painful a garment is to wear for a woman, the more a male seems to enjoy it.

(Come on, do you really think Salma Hayek wore that get-up in “Wild Wild West” because she was developing her character?) So in honor of their sacrifices, here’s a salute to the hottest corset-wearers in Tinseltown, in all of their top-heavy glory. (And we promise no photos of Andy Warhol wearing his own.)
