Sarah Stickney Ellis, Daughters of England  The remarkable similarity between Orbach’s and Ellis’s observations indicates that the wish to adapt to one predominant standard of beauty bridges nineteenth- and twentieth-century women’s experiences, and that contemporary complaints about the tyranny of slenderness have antecedents in the Victorian era. Nineteenth-century writers were well aware of the importance of beauty, including slenderness, in women’s lives, so discussions of the existence of a Victorian “beauty myth” do not merely impose a twenty-first-century concept upon the nineteenth century.

In the erotic imagination of Europe, it was apparently impossible . . ” The attempt to change that standard with a revival of empire fashions, which are characterized by high, undefined waists, did not catch hold of the public imagination until about . In order to achieve a small waist and still be desirably plump in other areas of the body, women of all economic classes turned to the corset. European women had worn corsets since the sixteenth century, but the nineteenth-century corset was a very different garment from its predecessors: instead of the eighteenth-century undergarment’s straight lines, the new “stays” molded the waist into a small circumference and thereby exaggerated the curve of breasts and hips.

Ellis’s interpretation of women’s behavior, therefore, requires an investigation into the body types that most appealed to fashionable Victorian women. ” Brumberg denies the existence of such an imperative during the mid-nineteenth century, and it is certainly true that the obsessive and ubiquitous pursuit of thinness that one sees in contemporary Anglo-American culture did   Victorian Literature and the Anorexic Body not exist to the same degree then as it does now. The look of overall thinness, including the fashion for boniness, did not claim its predominant place in fashion until after the turn of the century.
