A WORD ABOUT CORSETS.
The president of the Dressmakers' Protective Association frankly said
at a recent meeting, "A woman may be dressed with the severest simplic
ity, with the slightest expense, and yet be stylishly gowned if she wears
the correct corset." It is interesting to note that the correct corset used to
demonstrate the new styles at this same meeting was the
C. B. a la Spirite.
The highest type of the American Corset Makers' Art. The C. B. a Spirite
Corsets are made in a large range of styles, adapted to the varied require
ments of different figures, and affording the opportuniry for satisfying in
dividual taste. The new straight front has won unqualified approval and
Ots to advantage both those of slender build and those inclined toward em
bonoint. It adds rounded contour to the former, reduces the proportions
of the latter, and with any figure gives the advantages of beauty and hy
gienic arrangement by lengthening the waist line in front and establishing
a correct poise of body.
We sell C. B. a La Corsets, and guarantee them.
