This is an original 1938 color print depicting the corset in the years of 1921, 1925 and 1938. Included are two captions describing the corsetless era and the return of the corset. The caption begins, "The corsetless era was more fable than fact. Corset styles changed to the corselette (left below), then to the separate girdle and tight brassiere, useful in achieving the 'boyish form' (right). Lacing disappeared, bones were fewer, and corsets became lighter."
