Reading for Women—Sensible Talk on
From Good Health.
The waists with bands over the should-.
ers and buttons ior uie humiu-
skirts which some Ladies wear are a very
useful means of support, and when pro- -perly
made and fitted to the fortn they T
do much toward taking the- weight t
the skirts off the waist and their use u
to be strongly recommended; a single
waist can be made so as to support all
the skirts but that of the dress, and
this should be so loose as to be support
ed by its own waist . Of eonrst", if the
... 1 .- - .A m- aV
under waist is made so tigia at tue w
tom as to closely compress the abdo
men, it will be quite useless for the pur
pose designed. Woman's taste and in
genuity can devise plans for making,
them so neatly that they will add to,
rather than detract from, the appear
ance of the form. Those waists were
much more generally worn formerly
than now and it is a pity that they were.
ever discarded, as their continued use
would have prevented much injury to
the health of women.
This question of appearance brings
us at onoe to the consideration 01 tne
corsets, for it is undeniable that tnese
articles of dress are now worn mainly
for appearance sake. When and by
whom they were devised no one knows.
It is said they were nrs umib
a means of punishing refractory wives,
by lacing the ladies up in them, in the
days when the husband's will was ab
solute, and woman's right were un
known. Ii this is true, woman, with
her usual skill, has converted the wea
pons employed against her to her own
use. For every other article, of female
attire we can find some modeL either in
natmrA nr art. however far fotched the
comparison may be, but the most lively
imagination can trace no reseirblance
between the corset and its use aad any
thing else in creation, except in the
form of the wasp, or in some of the an
cient statues of Pallas, where she is
presented wearing a breastplate - of
scales, the shape of which somewhat re
sembles the modern corset; but the
learned and warlike goddess wore this
for defense, not for the production of a
small waist and, indeed, -had she se
cured this great desideratum of modern
times, she would probably have been
safe from the solicitations of Vulcan, for
with the ancients, god as well as men.
the wasp-like waists ox to-day wouia
hiye beea considered a deformity.
