Kabo Form-Reducing Corsets

KABO Form-Reducing CORSETS - 1900

Our corsets reduce a too high abdomen from four to six inches without harm or discomfort and are the only corsets that reduce as much or as little as may be necessary.

The Proper Thing with large figures is to wear the Hose Supporters at the extreme front of the corset, where they aid materially in straightening the carriage and make the fashionable straight front figure possible.

Kabo Form-Reducing Corsets have attachments at the front to engage the Hose Supporters and are the only corsets with this valuable improvement.

Price: White, Drab or Black, $2.50.
