A woman kisses another woman on the cheek. She is her friend. Non-sexual.
This film is set around 1900, hence both the women and men are nearly fully covered throughout as was the customary fashion of the period. Whilst the waxwork figures are dressed in historical costume, some of the female wax figures are dressed in skimpy outfits.
We see a woman in an early 1900s corset which covers most of her body, only minor cleavage. We also see minor cleavage from the woman helping her with her corset.
Some woman dancers doing the Can-Can are seen very closely. A woman remarks, "It doesn't seem proper, all those girls showing their...talents."
A man straps a young woman to a table totally naked to be encased in wax. Although it doesn't show him strapping her to the table. The scene starts after she's been disrobed and strapped down. No nudity is actually seen, only implied. We see her chest (and in one shot, minor cleavage is seen for a brief second) and then her legs below the knees. A man later comes along and puts his jacket over her.
