In the programme she seems to just slide it down from the top between her boobs after being laced up at the back, weird.

I seen a long time ago on telly about period clothing, the flat object going down the front was to help stop the

ladies from slouching when sitting and to keep a straight back.

I doubt if you or me could bend with that down your front :)

Now that would make sense Kiya as it seemed to to be just pushed down the front as an afterthought, at first I thought she was maybe tucking a fan or something down there as you do see them doing that in some old movies, but it was not a fan.

Another series I enjoyed was "Queen of the South" and just noticed last night that it now has a Season 2.

Am still watching "Scott & Bailey" but will be bingeing on Season 2 of "Queen of the South."

I just watched "The Last Czars" on Netflix. Was a semi-documentary with actors/actresses 6 episode series. Found it interesting and I realized I didn't really know much of anything about the Russian Royal Family. Have definitely heard of Rasputin (loved the Boney M song about him) and his part played true to what I thought about him but just didn't realize much re: Nicholas. Was interesting and I enjoyed it as a 2 night binge diversion from other shows.

@Horus It isn't a super exciting or riveting series but interesting enough for me to binge it in 2 nights of 3 episodes each night.

I suppose as I have watched quite a few programmes about the Romanov's in the past that this series didn't particularly grab me a such.

Just watched, on Netflix, "The Red Sea Diving Resort." Really enjoyed it and well worth a 2 hour or so watch.

@Horus Do give it a try. Quite enjoyed it and it says it is quasi based on true events.
