A GRACEFUL carriage and dignified bearing are of quite as much
if not of more importance to a woman than a pretty face.
If the woman could be made to realize that the proper selection of
her corset had much to do with both, she would be more careful to buy
only those corsets made on correct lines and in accordance with the
requirements of hygiene as related to her form.
WARNER'S RUST PROOF line embraces a variety large enough
to enable every woman to be properly fitted for figure ease, and im
provement, and at a price to suit her purse.
The day of the stiff, angular ' stay" has vanished into the past and
the corset of today conforms easily to the shape of the wearer, instead
of forcing the wearer to conform to the lines of the corset, and at the
same time it gives the effect of fashionable contour and stylish poise
demanded by the mode.
Every Pair Guaranteed.
