Ladies remember to be comfortable and to get the effect of a Straight Front the first essential is that the Corset should fit the figure and not force it into an unnatural position, as depicted in the various Fashion Journals. Among actresses the H.S. Corsets are held in high favour and are more worn than any other. This fact alone speaks for their unexceptional elegance and their durability is unquestionable. Press Opinion. The "Ladies" World says : "Half of the Straight Fronted Corsets sold and advertised at the present moment are utterly useless for the purpose they claim. A Straight Fronted Corset cut properly must be designed by an artist hey what's thoroughly understands the Anatomical figure." Prices : 3/11, 5/11, 7/11, 10.6 to 21/- pair.
