The Corset and the Gown.
There should be absolute harmony between them. Many a
wrinkle and flaw in fitting is charged to incompetence or careless
ness of the Modiste when the real fault lies in the design and “set”
of the corset.
The AmericsLn La.dy Corset
is a perfect foundation. It adapts itself perfectly to the figure, and helps the fit of the
outer garments. Made in medium height bust with ample skirt, which insures a smooth,
round, sloping effect at the point where so many corsets fail—over the hips.
The new LONGFELLOW MODELS are in strict accordance with the latest modes.
Handsomely finished—They give splendid service.
