Saoirse Ronan Was “Physically Altered” By Mary Queen of Scots Costume

Saoirse Ronan revealed that her entire shape changed during the filming of Mary Queen of Scots due to weeks spent filming in “corsets”.

Of course we should stress for costume purists that Mary Queen of Scots would have been wearing Elizabethan stays rather than a corset.

Indeed, up to a month after wrapping the shoot, Saoirse Ronan said she was still displaying curves she didn’t have before filming the highly-anticipated movie.

“When you’ve been wearing them like we did for months, you take them off at the end of the job and your shape has changed,” she said in an interview with Seth Meyers.

She found the shape remained with her for a considerable time after filming. “Like I didn’t have any curves before, and then I took it off and for about a month I was like ‘Aw, look at that! A little hourglass!’”

She then explained how her shape soon returned to normal with time out of the costume. Gesturing with her hands to indicate a straight figure she said “It just went back to that.”

While Seth seemed surprised that the garment could have such an impact long after it’s been removed, Ronan was quick to correct him. “It’s squashing your insides! And we’d have it on for 12 hours a day and it’s tight! Corsets are tight. So yeah, it actually does change your shape for a little bit.”




  1. As someone who has worn Elizabethan stays for hours, if your body is changing your uncorseted shape, then you’re wearing it wrong. It was laced too tight for her slender figure.

  2. If it changed her shape and “squashed her insides”, it was the wrong shape of stays. Elizabethans used stays that created a smooth, triangular shape, not an hourglass.

  3. You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I feel I might by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and very huge for me. I’m taking a look ahead to your next put up, I?¦ll try to get the cling of it!

  4. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re
    using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like
    yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching
    for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, yet I never found any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more useful than ever before. “I thank God for my handicaps, for through them, I have found myself, my work and my God.” by Hellen Keller.
