Some Interesting Corset News!
We have added to our wonderful line of "American Lady" Back Lace Corsets, a
new distinctive Front Lace Corset the "La Camille." After months of thorough in
vestigation of the various high grade Front Lace Corsets, we finally decided that the
"La Camille" Corset carried not only the best features, but an exceptionally good corset
as to style, fit, workmanship and good materials. All these you expect in quality cor
sets. "La Camille" has them and besides, three features of it's own, either one of
which would make a corset famous.
The Ventilo back eliminates pressure on the spine and allows ven
tilation, insuring longer life to the corset.
The Lox-it non-tilting clasp does not tilt, gap or come unfastened.
It is a perfect corset fastener.
The Ventilo Front Shield prevents the lacers from scoring the flesh
and insuies greater range of adjustment.
The price range is from $3.0C to $5.00, and as a special introductory feature, we
are introducing our model 2110, a $5.00 corset for $3.00.
As you no doubt know, the "American Lady" corset has added many wondevful
improvements to their already excellent product, chief of which is the new "mighty
bone" the bone that insures permancy of comfort and style, for it is impossible for
the 'mightybone' to become warped or bent in shape. Your "American Lady"
Corset retains its original shape as long as the corset lasts. We have just received
some excellent new models for all types of figures, prices ranging from $2.00 to $8 50.
We now feel that with a Corset Department carrying two such excellent lines,
that the women and girls of Plattsmouth and vicinity will find just what they want
here, and on the strength of the excellent reputation that the "American Lady" and
"La Camille" Corsets have won for themselves, we can confidentially assure you that
you can make no mistake in making your selection here.
