  • Overall, I found Victorian Secrets book a very quick and easy ready, finishing it in just five days (possibly a new record for me!), and could be easily completed in one sitting. Her style of writing is similar to that of a blog in many respects, but I will admit I did bump into two words I was utterly unfamiliar with and had to look up! The book is accompanied with images from various catalogs of the turn-of-the-century, Gibson drawings, and photographs of the author herself. Ultimately I found Chrisman’s mini-memoir to be inspiring, and encouraging. She has armed herself with numerous sources as she steps outside her front door to quickly thwart those who know only the stereotypes of the period, and has become a Historical Ambassador! I find myself now more eager to speak up for myself when one talks about the annoyances of girdles and/or stockings and other matters of “oppression” with regards to dress.

    In a book released Nov. 1, titled "Victorian Secrets: What a Corset Taught Me About the Past, the Present, and Myself," Chrisman offers insight, and explains her choice.

Victorian Secrets begins on March 12, 2009, Chrisman's 29th birthday and the day that her husband presented her with her first corset. (The two married in 2002.) At first, she admits, she wasn't pleased with the "unwelcome" gift.
