Oh, the sacrifices we make!

A leather corset that belonged to late Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is displayed at the Frida Kahlo museum in Mexico City, Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012. A full collection from Kahlo’s wardrobe will go on public display Nov. 22 in Mexico City after being locked for nearly 50 years in her armoires and dressers: jewelry, shoes and clothes that still carry the scent of the late artist’s perfume and cigarette smoke or stains from painting. Her loose blouses covered the stiff corsets she wore for back pain. AP Photo/Dario Lopez-Mills.

Honestly, when I first read the above, I wondered about Frida, but then I read about back pain, and could only imagine how she must have suffered with her pain while painting for long periods. Here’s a little more and another picture of her clothing from ArtDaily. Which brings to mind another question: Would you want your clothing in a museum exhibit?
