As always corsets are in the press! They've been seen on WAG Kimberely looking stunning and then there was Maggie Smith talking about the toll of making the final series of Downton and why she never wants to see a corset again!

Well we are all sad to see the end of Downton looming and sorry to hear Countess Violet was uncomfortable in her corset although in the final series which is the 1920’s I am surprised the cast were wearing corsets?

If the corsets were uncomfortable in the earlier series that has to be down to the costume house, although I think they did an amazing job - the dresses were outstanding.  Perhaps the corsets got ‘second fiddle’ as they were not on show and did not fit accurately and like shoes they are very personal and have to be worn in!
