Frangible: Frangible means fragile or breakable. Frangible shares its etymology with: fragment, fraction, defray, refract, infringe, and fractal (among others).
If we may take the imposition of tight corsets on 'O' as any guide, we might assume that the tiny waist is chiefly valued as a point of frangibility for the female frame, so that it gratifies sadistic fantasies.
