Haabet, your caption "Fascia was a long breast-band. It was commen used of women in Antiquity." --

1) Is completely ungrammatical English.

2) Is not really true, since what the woman in Image:Fig2Sthethodesme_ou_Fascia_d'apres_une_statue_antique.gif is putting on is not typical of what ancient women wore, but is actually almost certainly at least a little MORE supportive and binding than what ancient women typically wore (thus my suggestion of athletic attire -- though of couse, it might not have been completely restricted to athletic attire).

3) Doesn't really fit with the definition of "fascia" in my Latin dictionary. Churchh 19:42, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

Page loads slowEdit

Due to the giant gif images, that are not downscaled by the server, the page loads very very slow, or the browser crahses. should be converted to images with different resolutions where the small ones are shown here, and/or the page could be divided into more parts.

Feel free to remove some of the patent application images (many which have never really added much to the page). Churchh (talk) 07:30, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
