Ethel Granger (1905-1982) was known for having the smallest waist ever, with 33 cm only. Her husband William Arnold Granger was responsible for Ethel's efforts in obtaining such deformation. He once wrote: “if she can outshine other members of her sex in some way, this is a victory worth any amount of suffering”. Adding to her extreme corsets Ethel was known also for her huge piercings, which conceived an overhall image that is extremely strong.
In its September 11 edition Vogue Italia made a beautiful editorial inspired on her that you can check here: http://www.vogue.it/en/magazine/cover-story/2011/09/avantgarde
