I suspect that my personal preference for the kind of support I get with my own dresses is probably pretty extreme, if it were to be placed on some possible spectrum of dresses in the time period. I do think though that the evidence for lacing is a pretty strong hook on which to hang the concept of "snug", which isn't too far of a leap from "giving some support", but like everyone seems to be violently agreeing, how MUCH support/structure is utterly debatable.

BTW, Robin is the mom of the fully-supportive lace-up concept. It hit us all between the eyes and we were all off to the races. I will never abandon my full-support version -- because it works so well for me and gets me a great 1380-1410 look for France, but I'd've probably muddled along without getting to where I got a bit longer had I not stumbled across Robin's theories.
