Host Lisa Simeone visits Le Chateau Exotique, a small shop in New Hope, Pennsylvania, that specializes in corsets. The waist-cinching, bust-enhancing garments of the past are enjoying a resurgence, and they've come out from under. Today's corsets are made of lush, colorful fabrics, and they're meant to be seen. Two websites for more corset information and history: speakeasy.org/~traceyb/corset/corset2.html and www.staylace.com/
