Some Reasons Why Nemo Corsets
Have Become the World's Standard
EXCLUSIVENESS: Every Nemo
Corset ia an original patented specialty
which gives valuable and necessary ser
vice, to women of every figure, which
no other corset can possibly render.
STYLE Wmi COMFORT: Our
various inventions, including Lastikops
Webbing, enable Nemos to produce
new and superb style-effects that cannot
be produced by any other corset, even
at the sacrifice of health and comfort
ECONOMY: Nemos are univer
sally conceded to have far greater
wearing qualities than any other corsets,
and therefore are the most economical.
Greatest Values Why?
We make more "high-priced" corsets ($3.00
and upward) than all other American corset
manufacturers combined. This constitutes prac
tically all of our business; while with all other
makers the higher-priced corsets are a side
issue. Therefore it is ea?y to understand that,
with this vast output, we can and Do give the
public far greater values in Corsets from $3.00
up than any other maker can afford to give,
FIXED. FAIR PRICES: Nemo Corsets
are sold to retailers only upon agreement to
retail them at fixed standard prices, that (five
