A great read for a quick overview of the history of corsets and figure training, complete with an "a day in the life" scenario of young women in search of the perfect physique.
The Figure Training Fundamentals book is actually a historical guide to nineteenth century figure training. It's a good book for learning about how corsets have gotten where they are today, but it isn't horribly fascinating.
If you want to read and see campy 80 year old advertisements for corsets, or read corseting advice columns of the same vintage era, then this is the book for you. However, if you are looking for a contemporary 'how to' manual for corseting beginners, pass this book by.
