Queen Bess Corset And Skirt Supporter
A Comfortable, Graceful, and Durable Corset for Women
More and more manufacturers began to market their corsets as “scientifically constructed,” and “built according to health and comfort standards” in an attempt to appeal to the health-minded woman and escape condemnation by many physicians of the day who were speaking out against corsets. The Queen Bess Corset was made by the Worcester Corset Company which originally constructed hoop skirts and was named the Worcester Skirt Company until 1872. The Queen Bess was displayed at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia.
