  A lot more information and detailed pictures than the Velda Lauder book I've just got! Thank you:)

I've always had problems finding corset-related stuff on this site. Do you look for clothing and dry goods catalogues and then search inside? Or?...

I have just found this which people might like:

  D.Gold, At the moment its kind of a treasure hunt with Archive.org. There used to be a full text search with http://openlibrary.org/, but its been unavailable for the last few months.

So to find books, I hunt by subject and then search for corset inside the book, until they get the full text up and working again.

For the Winterthur collection, it was a case of stumbling into a vein of info on accident, I was looking for something else completely and found these.
