Why did women bind their feet?

An indication that men understood that the symbolic erotic fantasy of bound feet did not correspond to its unpleasant physical reality, which was therefore to be kept hidden. For men, the primary erotic effect was a function of the lotus gait, the tiny steps and swaying walk of a woman whose feet had been bound. Women with such deformed feet avoided placing weight on the front of the foot and tended to walk predominantly on their heels. As a result, women who underwent foot-binding walked in a careful, cautious, and unsteady manner. The very fact that the bound foot was concealed from men's eyes was, in and of itself, sexually appealing. On the other hand, an uncovered foot would also give off a foul odor, as various saprobic microorganisms would colonize the unwashable folds.

Well I don't know about that, but the way I heard that it started was through beauty: the Chinese community believed that the smaller a woman's feet were, the more beautiful she was. I believe thIs all started because of a semi-real life Cinderella story about a girl with a bad home life, that ends up marring a prince that loves her MOSTLY for her small feet that were not bound. When other people learned this, they also wanted their daughters to have small feet so that rich men would take interest In them. Thus foot binding began. What ever happened to liking a girl for her personality
