Mr Pearl Designer and Wearer of Corsets

Mr Pearl Designer and Wearer of Corsets

Mr Pearl has constructed corsets for Jean Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, John Galliano, Chloe, Alexander McQueen, Antonio Berardi and Christian Lacroix. And today still for Burlesque entertainer Dita von Teese, for example. His work was on show at the V&A in London at the Undressed exhibition Mr P. is a ‘Corsetier’ also known for having an18-inch corseted waist, wearing his corset 24 hours a day, 7 days a week except when bathing. (we are not sure if he still does that nowadays) We think it’s safe to say he has a fetish. He isn’t the only man alive with this ‘historical related body modification’ obsession; for which you need actual training.

Dramatic Waist Hip Ratio Kim K in Dior Bikini

Mrs Kardashian-West is breaking the internet once again with her body. To be precise with an unretouched picture of her very large booty wrapped in tiny Dior swimwear. The world of celeb addicts (yours truly included) is fascinated by the size of her humongous, almost bare, behind. While examining her butt (and the astonishing hip – waist ratio) we also wondered if this is a vintage Dior bikini she’s wearing….. You must know that the designer at the house of Dior is sending a completely different type of woman/body-image into the world nowadays.(see images below)

Dior also broke the internet with these ‘we should all be feminists’ slogan t-shirts last year at the fashion week. (they will be for sale soon at a Dior shop near you). We would like to see Kim mixing vintage Dior with Dior’s new slogan tee; ideally a wet one! xoxo Mimi Berlin

Ethel Granger

Ethel Granger (1905-1982) “The smallest waist on earth”
Ethel Granger is known for being the women with the smallest waist on earth; 13 inches (33 cm). This according to the Guinness Book of records


Further reduction of Ethel’s waist did entail some problems. Although Ethel had been laced tightly for years and was accustomed to being tightly laced all the time, she frequently loosened the laces when alone and her sides became sore. Mrs. Kayne told Will to tolerate no nonsense from Ethel, so whenever he inspected her corset and found it open an inch, he tightened it until it was again closed.” Taken from Ethel Granger’s Biography, available at:
