The Girdles of Yesteryear

Daphne Merkin has a delightful piece in yesterday's TMagazine about her search for a classic foundation garment in this modern city of Spanx.  
Girdles and corsets range aesthetically from sexy to mechanical.  If I was looking for a slimming foundation garment, I would rather feel like I had an old-fashioned secret, than a medical secret.  Spanx seem to me like something prescribed post-surgery.
