Spirella Catalogue (1933)/117

Style 2738—Diaphragm Reducing Brassiere


ADAPTABILITY—This series is designed to smooth and control the bust of the 30-type figure, and to control flesh in the diaphragm region.

It is worn over a corset, girdle or belt. The two hose supporters attached to long tabs in the front make it a convenient garment for any occasion when a corset is not being worn. The design is so shaped and boned in the back as to control shoulder and under arm flesh and give a pleasing waist line. Through the action of the lacing and the elastic inserts this garment serves as a comfortable diaphragm reducer. The narrow Spirella Boning and the elastic at the waist aid in holding the garment smoothly to the figure in all positions.

Basic Features—Lace Bust Sections; Back Lacing; Front Lacing; Supporters Omitted. (See pages 128 to 131.)


Bust Sizes—40 to 52. Larger sizes, special—see Price List.

Waist Sizes—May be ordered 5, 6, 7 or 8 inches smaller than bust, without extra charge.

HOW TO ORDER—The style in the series to order is determined by the client's waist to bust line measurement.

Note—1 inch lacing space at the waist has been allowed for the design.

In classifying a client as to type for a brassiere, that part of the figure to be controlled by the brassiere must be considered, not the figure as a whole.

No corset or girdle is complete without a brassiere.
