in the various homes, then the careful factory inspection, then

soiled, tossed and mussed corsets,
and discounts to your heart's con
tent Now for the New Corset
Don't think of the new gown
until you have decided on the cor
set. The correct way is to have
the corset and not try to find a
corset to fit the dress.
The very foundation for the
most exquisite gowning is the cor
set. N"o matter how elegant and
costly the dress, if the corset does
not fit properly, the effect is ruin
ed. Most women have learned that
the corset comes first and is the
most important. It is our aim to
make all women understand and
appreciate this real necessity. Buy
your corset first.
