I only had a few issues with the article:
For a brief time, from 1800 to 1830, the Napoleonic high “empire waist” look freed bellies from the confines of waist-constricting stays, as corsets became smaller and closer to modern-day bras.The era of the short corset was very short itself, from about 1795 to 1805. By 1810, as dresses slimmed down, women were wearing long corsets again.
A corsetier with an M.D., Inès Gaches-Sarraute, came up with the straight-front corset—also known as the “swan-bill,” “S-line,” or “S-bend” corsets—which he believed kept the pressure off a woman’s stomach. But these corsets forced women to tilt awkwardly, hips back, breasts forward, and created an exaggerated S-shape in the back.Gaches-Sarraute was a woman, not a man. It's not a huge mistake, but in my opinion, it changes the tone.
