The corset is †a mutilation, undergone for the purpose of lowering the subject’s vitality and rendering her permanently and obviously unfit for work.

British India at times seems like a marriage of opposites, the often uncomfortable melding of extreme corsetry with pure fluidity.  To me this seemed like a modern take on those very contradictions.
