This article seeks to explore the relationship between corset and fetichism in the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. Supported by Anne McClintock’s view in Couro imperial — Race, gênery and sexuality in the colonial emblem on fetiche and the dynamics between class and gênere, the role of corset in maintaining vitorian female domestic cyosity is analysed. Research suggests that the value crisis created by the conflict between public and private spaces, the relationship between the male agency and the stagnation of women and the impossibility of enjoyment of the female race are embodied in the corset which becomes an objeto-fetiche. The recovery of Freud’s papers, the study of the pedigree of the fetiche and the resumption of its aetimological origin amplifies the prospects of significance for the corset’s relationship with the female ococentist body, whose silhouette, drawn by the corseteria, defined the possibilities of its social role.
