Women have always tried hard to look pretty. They are born with a feeling of looking prettier and smarter than others and for that they can go through anything possible.
Pictures of various harsh beauty treatments surfacing on the internet is a proof that there’s enough stress on women to look good even today but a picture shared by Reddit user catnik of a Victorian women has boggled our minds.
Here’s the picture:
User catnik posted this extremely displeasing image of a lady in a corset, thought to be taken in Victorian times around 1899. We don’t really need to mention why the picture is displeasing. It is just sad to see what pain women must’ve gone through to achieve an ideal hour glass figure in those times.
We can only be thankful about the fact that no one in today’s time expects women to wear these body-altering corsets to achieve a thinner waist.
Redditor [–]biderjohn out of surprise or you may say shock commented on the image:Top of Form “how did the ladies of old not have severe tummy problems or blockages from the corsets constricting their guts?”
We need to appreciate ourselves the way we are. There are girls even today that regularly wear corsets to achieve a thinner waist. Going through so much pain and discomfort to attain beauty is nothing but insanity. When you have a choice to live your life the way you want to, you must not waste it trying these things that can only bring you discomfort.
