With almost every high street store producing its own version of the Moulin Rouge corset, is it going to become a must have item in the winter wardrobe?

Woman's Hour puts the corset in its historical context and looks at its social significance and the women and men who wore it.
June Kenton, from Rigby and Pellar corset makers, and Anthea Jarvis, a fashion historian at the Gallery of Costume in Manchester join in the discussion.
