Louise Foxcroft speaks about her book, Calories and Corsets. Today we are urged from all sides to slim down and shape up, to shed a few pounds or lose life-threatening stones. Meticulously researched, surprising and sometimes shocking, Calories and Corsets tells the epic story of our complicated relationship with food, the fashions and fads of body shape, and how cultural beliefs and social norms have changed over time.
