10c. and ISc,
You, who may have found disappointment in front-
laced corsets by being persuaded to buy one of many
imitations of the Gossard Corset are specially invited to
come now and learn by a trial fitting- what a perfect
front-laced corset really is.
It is practically impossible to corectly adjust a long-,
back lacing- corsets, whereas the longest front-laced
Gossard Corset is adjusted with ease and accuracy be
fore your mirror.
The tendency in fashions lies in low bust, straight
hips flat back and all of these essentials are correctly
Satisfaction is yours if you will fulfill your long made
promise to yourself to try a Gossard fitting. Your
excuse for changing from obsolete back lacing method
was never so good as at the present time. The models
were never so perfect.
