How did corsets come to be a necessity in woman’s clothing in Europe?

As the suffrage movement developed in England, many began to campaign for thorough dress reform. Women’s magazines ran pieces that described how tight dresses and corsets caused deformities and illness among young girls. They explained how such clothing styles restricted blood circulation and muscle growth and affected the spinal cord. Therefore, corsets gained popularity as a means of supporting the weakened spine of women.
