Corsets, Bound Feet and Spanx…OH MY!

ignite logo I recently spoke at Ignite Ft. Collins. If you happened to miss the presentation, here’s the video for your enjoyment.

If you’re not familiar with Ignite, it’s an evening filled with:

  • 5-minute long presentations
  • 20 slides per presentation
  • Slides automatically advance every 15 seconds
  • The audience votes in advance on the presentations they want to see

These events take place in cities around the world. Check your backyard to see if there’s an Ignite shaking up YOUR scene…Always a good time, this was my fourth Ignite talk. Roll!

As another theater major who did an stint in the costume shop, I can understand what you're getting at.

I really needed to see this tonight as all my jeans from last year just aren't zipping up. I think I will just wear Spanx and mini skirts from now on. I can't imagine a 15" waist. She's probably not fitting many Frescas into that stomach.

Fantastic IGNITE-job. I especially like the topic since I write a fair amount about body image. It's nuts what we women do to ourselves to meet the prevailing image of beauty. Now it's breast implants as a high school graduation present. I don't want to get started. Anyway Reds, again, you did a great job on both meeting their criteria, conveying a message, and making it fun. Cherry

Erika, you are a woman after my own heart. I spent 4 months writing a thesis on the effect of corsets on British Victorian women. My point? I love you hard.

Your share is as nice as those boots you're wearing. Very well done. Spanx eh? Cheers.
