Weingarten Bros Erect Form Corset

Weingarten Bros Erect Form Corset

The “W. B. Erect Form” corset gives a long, low and full effect from shoulder to bust. It is the only correct model for the new straight-front styles in costumes. It is a health corset. It is a surpassingly beautiful corset.

It throws the shoulders back into a fine military poise. It inflicts no strain upon bust or abdomen and thus does away with those faults of corset construction which often lead to indigestion, short-breathing and sometimes even more serious troubles.

The “Erect Form” does not strain the figure—all the pressure of lacing is upon the hips and back muscles which are most capable of sustaining it.
