I can't say that I've ever felt the earth move while wearing 18th century clothing, but I can tell you that if you're wearing stays laced this tightly and you sneeze, you knock the wind right out of yourself.
Now to put things in perspective, this is Shorter Half
dressed cross-dressed for a Pirate Party.
I also have pictures that include cleavage. Your choice - front or back. If that doesn't cause the earth to move, nothing will.
* Note for curious costumers: A friend put the dress together for him. She surmised that two size 22 prom dresses would equal a men's size 44. She wasn't far off.
** Note 2: that first pictue is about 12 years old. Just sayin'.
