Torture Devices

This morning, I was looking through ebay‘s large collection of vintage shapewear. I came across this:

tortye devidsa

I have no idea why somebody would describe this girdle as a ‘torture device’ when they are attempting to sell it.

What annoys me more is the description, this person is obviously completely ignorant about shapewear, which is absolutely fine, but don’t make out like a lady would have to me mentally incapacitated in order to want to wear this.

Some readers have left comments on my posts along these lines. I love to hear people’s feedback but please don’t write a comment telling me how awful these ‘torture devices’ are. They are actually incredibly comfortable and I often wear such garments for an entire day, without discomfort.
