Suffering for beauty is not just a thing of the past. Twenty-first-century women go to great effort and cost to accommodate ever changing beauty ideals. Every age has its own ideas about beauty and the fashion that adorns our bodies.  Suffer for Beauty explores changing ideals of female beauty by looking at foundations of the female form, 1870-1970: undergarments and the accouterments that helped women in their effort to attain the elusive ideal of beauty—which in so many ways reflects the roles of women in the society of their time.
