Nearly 70 percent declared that many of their customers who practised extreme tight-lacing wore a minimum of underclothing - ''quite insufficient'' several wrote - or especially arranged garments. One well-known West End corsetière wrote ''Five or six of my tightest-lacing customers wear what, if they were a little thinner, would be nothing more nor less than actresses' 'tights'.'' Corsetière A wrote ''The majority of my customers wear woven, tight-fitting clothing to do away with the fullness of the old-fashioned underclothing, which I consider better and more comfortable, and certainly it enables them to lace more tightly.'' Corsetière B wrote: ''The woven silk or wool combination now so much worn, skin-tight at the waist, is very popular with my customers, and is most comfortable underwear. It would never do for a lady who wishes to lace very tightly to wear the old-fashioned separate and cumbersome garments.''
