Victorian vs. Flapper Posture

As a followup to the Posture article, here are some more pictures. If you use Google Images, you can find occassional pictures of Victorian women slouching and Flappers standing straight, especially when you look at family pictures. However, the art and illustrations of the era show the ideals from thos eras, so that's what I've included here.

  1. Great article. Great site. Poor posture is one of the most common health afflictions and can lead to a host of medical problems from the annoying to the severe. This product/website offers the ultimate posture correction solution. . Instead of immersing yourself in posture exercises for about an hour a week and seeing negligible results, now you can sit down and let a machine do the all the work. Who doesn’t enjoy convenience like that?
