Actress Golda Rosheuvel, portraying Queen Charlotte in Bridgerton, shares discomfort about wearing a corset while filming, requiring continuous training to adapt

Some members of the Bridgerton cast have spoken out about the unsettling truth of shooting while wearing corsets.

Within the first month after its December 2020 release on Netflix, 82 million households watched the series premiere.

Everything from bridal gowns to corsets started to take cues from Regency period style after the drop.

A whopping 39% more individuals were searching for corsets and 37% more for lace tops in January 2021, according to eBay UK.

Although the figure-hugging undergarments were essential for achieving the unrealistically small waists that ladies of that era sought, they were far from comfortable.

Golda Rosheuvel, who portrays the gossipy Queen Charlotte, spoke up about the challenges of wearing a corset all day and her preparations for days on set at a press conference on Monday, in anticipation of the show’s second season.

“You have to have stamina to wear those costumes,” she said, adding that this regimen makes “recovery” days in between shooting “less difficult.” She trains three times a week, eats properly, and drinks plenty of water.

The fact that Rosheuvel was double corseted—that is, wearing two corsets at once—only made her situation more difficult.

“Because I am still very much alive; my internal organs are fully functional. However, extreme caution is required. Be match fit,” she said.

Lady Featherington’s Polly Walker, who co-starred with Rosheuvel, also said that she was required to wear “little white tights that wouldn’t stay up” for the part.

I had a gigantic corset, so I can’t claim that [my costumes] were comfy,” she remarked.

My tights were the size of a toddler’s, yet I still managed to appear exquisite. “However, it served a noble purpose.”
