Minoan Style Costume

I'm writing an essay on Minoan style costume and how I believe that they *did not* wear corsets - many people believe they did. It started off with an interest in the exposed-breast aspect of the Minoan-style women's garments, and then lead into an interest in the whole costume. I must say however, that although I tried to "out-Minoan" the Minoans with a focus on prominent breasts, this lady from Thera really beats me, even with my three breasts!

Archaeology magazine had an article not many year ago showing reconstruction of Minoan costumes on live models.
