Dowager’s What?

I’ve heard of Dowager’s Humps (even if the term doesn’t quite make sense for dowager means “a widow holding property received from her deceased husband” so the ‘hump’ must be caused by what I don’t know — and let’s not make the noun ‘hump’ a verb because I’m not about to make this a porno blog), but I’m confused as to what to make of The Dowager Corset.

To the maker ‘dowager’ is akin to ‘stout’, which along with corset may have something to do with dowager humps, but I just feel bad that widowed land owners must be painted in such terms.

I can’t help but feel a parallel to witch hunts.
