Day four of my bathing experiment and I love cold showers now, I don't think I can go back! :D

Well, if I lived in those temperatures I would propably love them too. But because of living in Finland, and it's winter now, I don't think I could do that every day. I'm not mentally strong enough :)

Hey Ann,

I left a link of a woman lacing her corset from the back on youtube as a demostration.  It's not really hard after you practise for a while.  ;) I wear corsets in the summer :)

Thank you! A full-length miror would definitely help in order not to get the loose ends tangled up. However, I don't think I'm going to become a corset convert.

Olga 58,7 kg
Tatiana 63,5 kg
Maria 68,8 kg
Anastasia 59,4 kg

Olga - 129 lbs
Tatiana - 140 lbs
Maria - 152 lbs
Anastasia -131 lbs

Had to do it! I get excited when there is something I am capable of doing in math(my worst subject). Anyway, it makes their estimated heights (5'5, 5'9, 5'7, 5'3 or '4) seem more plausible.

It isn't that light. I'm 5'6 and 125 lbs. 140 seems like a lot for Tatiana, but she was so tall.

Actually Maria seems to be a bit overweight, not drastically but she could have been musclar.
