“I remember that she was a nurse and she was going sometimes out to make injections to people. And me during that time I could look what she has in cupboard and I discovered a corset. I didn’t know what it was. It was like a flesh color, it was with a lace at the back, strange and beautiful at the same time, very intriguing you know. I asked her what it was and she told me the story. When she was young she was wearing that as a silhouette. So she was drinking some vinegar and putting the corset and with contractions of the stomach – when she was drinking the vinegar the stomach had a contractions – and at that time she asked someone to pull the laces to make the waist very, very thin.”
