HpHE opening week of our Special Exploitation Display and Demonstration
was a triumph a complete, absolute triumph! From the opening hours of
the demonstration until the store closed e.venings our Corset Section has been
thronged with delighted women and not a single one of this enthusiastic throng
failed to be very strongly impressed with the novel and exclusive feature of
The single fact that they lace
in front makes them superior
to all other corsets. The
principle of construction is
right right for grace right
for health right for style.
Every figure-r-any figure will fit the "Gossard"
Corset. It emphasizes individuality, being the founda
tion and permitting the final touch of exclusive character
to either simple or elaborate toilette. js the most inti
mate accessory of women's apparel it meets and joins
the wearer's figure in quite a personal way, associating
itself so closely and finely that the "Gossard" and its
wearer are one. The regard of the wearer for her
"Gossard" Corset comes as near true friendship as cau
exist between animate beings and inanimate objects.
For the woman of generous proportions the woman
over 140 when hips need 'a refining line, with waist
wanting shapeliness, and bust correction necessary, we
have the model one model that will do all these. If one
only, either one, of these difficulties is to be improved,
we have that model, too. For mademoiselle or madame
of slight or slender figure, or just beyond the pale of
either, be it a rounded effeot that you require, a slight
restraint, a direct line for emphasis, a curve for harmony,
that model we have conjured for your need ; evolved it,
not by chance, but by the calculating plans of science,
abetted by a wide experience that taught the need.
I 1 if
These Corsets sell at the reas
onable price of $5 and up.
Economical women will find
that one Gossard Corset at. $5
is actually cheaper than live
ordinary corsets at $2 each.
The Most Beautiful Corset m the World
In corsets, as in the production of anything com
bining art and beauty, there must be one most beauti
ful. The Venus de Medici, standing for all ages as the
most beautiful representative of the female form, is
an ideal figure, a composite of the measurements of
many women with as near perfect forms as could be
found. As the sculptor worked, harmonizing many
beautiful curves, until the one perfect form was chis
eled from the marble, so worked Mmes. Margaine La
Croix and Foulde de Grasse, measuring here and there,
taking this curve and that line, combining for "L 'Irre
sistible" and "The Gossard". all the beauties of figure
in the most perfect models of Paris, until they pro
duced this one most beautiful corset. And so, too, does
every woman , who wears this unapproachable orset
achieve a beautiful figure, for your lines yield without
discomfort and follow the harmonious outline of this
perfect production. Can you afford to miss our Special
Exploitation Display and Demonstration? Remember,
it is under the personal supervision of Mme. Redding,
the personal representative of The II. W. Gossard Co.,
who will be with us only during this week. Come to
our Corset Section tomorrow if you can.
