''Corsets have much to do with the appearance of the women who wear them and also with their comfort and discomfort and, consequently, their disposition, for it can be truely said that corsets that fit properly are the next thing to a blessing, whereas ill-fitting corsets can provide as much food for ill temper as can any other thing. Nowadays the woman unfamiliar with the comforts and discomforts of corsets is a rareity, and it is chiefly to assist in the securing of proper-fitting corsets that this subject is considered at this time...''
