Corsets: A Step Back in Time with Hankrietta Grunt

Photo from Fashions of a Decade: The 1920's featuring an advertisement for NuBone corsets.

Cruising through Fashions of a Decade: The 1920’s, I crossed this reproduction of an advertisement for corsets. Now, in small part, corsets have made a comeback…

Hankrietta thought them becoming, so tried one herself…

Hankrietta Grunt's new mixed 1920's/2020's look–pink flapper dress with ripped blue jeans.

…and came up with a mix of 1920’s and 2020’s fashion…

…however, in the end, decided to doff the corset and go for the comfort and glory of her own figure. Good! Why on Earth would anyone bring back the corset?

That’s right, ladies, walk away. No corsets today.

Thank you for joining Wander in a Box for another thought, a few pics, and a moment from the 20’s with Hankrietta!

I love the links between life and literature, and couldn't get by day-to-day without a little humor. Here's my place to share thoughts and discoveries in bite-sized pieces, illustrated by my sister Morra Morron. Enjoy!
