W. B. and LaVida corsets
Demonstration by expert corsetiere
"Women are realizing more and more the importance
of the corset. Designers are giving much thought to
improvements which will make the rorset more com
fortable. The now "W. Ii. and La Yida models show
distinct improvements. They produce greater slen
derness of hip lines, round out the upper part of
the body and afford better support to the abdomen.
.Because of the lower bust
lines there is an absence of
nil sensation of being
"pushed up" by the corset,
and a freedom from pressure
against the arms by the top

It is advisable to consult
Miss White and have her se
