Madame Gritton, -who is con
ducting a demonstration of the
"Bien Jolie" Grecian Treco cor
setthat's them In "Washing
ton this week, says that they
'Just had to be. American women
demanded them for .beauty and
'comfort; physicians " demanded
them for health. And. so they
were built along scientific lines,
and offered to the corset-wearing
sex. And they immediately
became so popular that the fac
tory can't make them fast
enough to meet the demand.
"They're healthful,- said Mad
ame Gritton, "because they're so
light There's no pressure on
any part of the body; they don't
crowd surplus flesh down and
make the limbs ungainly.
"They're beautiful because they
conform to the. lines of the fig
ure, creating the "natural figure.'
There's no stiffness, consequent
ly the "uncorseted effect which
is not ,a sloppy effect And
they're comfortable. No woman
can look graceful lOsbe Isn't
comfortable; American women
have come- to realize that and
that's the reason why they hart
demanded ease. Tou can. sit in
these as easily as you can stand.
They're not only for the society
woman, but .for the business
woman -who docs 'hard work.
The price puts them within the
reach of all from 3 to 50."
