Proud Cabaret CamdenVisit website zero stars After being a stronghold for live bands and the alternative scene for many years, Camden will now welcome a more glamorous crowd with the launch of Proud Cabaret Camden. Formerly Proud Kitchen, the south gallery has undergone dramatic transformation to offer not only food but a glamorous, more decadent, 360º entertainment experience that will be the perfect partner to the Proud Camden gallery and live music venue.
Women typically wore a petticoat which helped conceal a corset known as a waspie. Waspies helped define the waistline and had garters to support stockings. Tiny waists and high bust lines were the style of the day, which helped create a need for more constrictive, structured underwear. For instance, the circle stitched bra was designed to separate and lift the bust. Full-length slips and full skirted waist slips were worn in addition to uplift bras and girdles.
