Dear Madam : Don't judge a corset by its looks;
for a very ordinary corset can be "dolled up" with showy
laces and ribbons so that it will look very much like an
expensive one. ,
It is a deplorable fact that of late many corset manu
facturers are producing large Quantities of these "maka-
believe corsets. Look out for them I They are sold under
many different names; and the names can be quickly and
frequently changett-every season, if necessary-7-for the
maker seldom puts his own brand on them.
These "make-believe' corsets soon ftretch out of
shapes give no lines to the figure, and are unhygienic
To buy them is simply to waste your money and spoil
your form. , x
Better 4tick to the Nemothe name that slands for
corset-perfeaion the world over. You can never buy a
Nemo that hasn't the Nemo trade-markwhether in
New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Hong Kong, or
anywhere else. And that name is your safeguard.
You probably know that Nemo Corsets are world
famed for durability, no less than for comfort. They're
just as famous now for Style,
In Paris, where no other American corset has ever
been sold, Nemos are having a signal triumph in the ,
Iargeit and most fashionable corset department: in .that .
city "Fashion's Capital
. In London, the leading Department Store features -Nemos
to the pradtical exclusion of other makes.
Don't think that Nemos are simply health and comfort '
corsets. They're also the acme of correct style and
there's a Nemo that.will t you, , s 1
For instance: If youre of slight or medium form,
and want to be still more slender, you'll find Nemo No.
331, pictured to-day, the most comfortable hmg corset
you ever wore -.Too elaitic bands across the front give
such firm support that, no matter how tightly you pull
the long skirt in, you run too risk of injuring your health.
No. 330 is a similar model with a medium bust; No.
332 has an extra-lueh buit; and No. 333 has only a
little girdle top -an ideaTjcorset for athletic women.
- Ii none of these sintvou perfaly, ask your dealer to '
show you Nemo No. 504. ' kopsbros.
