The Dangers Of Corsetry Upon The Psyche Of A Young Female

This is the first time she's worn a corset, and she's already decided she doesn't like it.

There's something poking into her breasts and the ties are tickling the small of her back and every time she takes a step, there's something there to remind her of her body, and she doesn't like it. She doesn't like the tightness around her waist or that her back's kept perfectly straight or how her breasts are being squished together or...

If she was able to ignore her body, she wouldn't've felt the little flutters in her stomach when he took her hand.
