WOMEN'S WAISTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wallaroo Times — 8 July 1882
WOMEN'S WAISTS. Mrs Havreia has written a letter in defence of small waists. She says i—" The long and the short of it is, a small waist is only pretty, when it is natural; for ,it is then, and only then, architecturally in proportion. . A wide, oyerhangiug penthouse bust and a pinched waist are excessively ugly —and nnwholesome too—because unnatural. The trunk roust be of the right breadth for the branches, i.e., the shoulders. Given that the width of the shoulders measured outside the arms, across the back, equals 15, the width of the waist ought not to be less than 7~k- Or say the circumference of the shoulders be 38 inches the circumference of the waist should not be less than 21 inches. If 48 inches round the bust, the waist should not be less than 28 inches. Lastly, as to safe pressure. A waist which is naturally only 22 inches may be enclosed in stays of 20 inches without danger or discomfort; indeed, Jt would be difficult to feel any support with a looser corset. In such a c...
