Arms and the Woman – Strength Magazine – October, 1924

There was a time when a woman’s dress quite effectively covered up her unshapeliness of body,-sometimes her shapeliness, but we fear not usually so. Indeed in the light of recent revelations the old fashioned concealment of the human form with its manifold imperfections was something to be grateful for even at the extravagant use of dry goods. At that time one could at least be attractively dressed in spite of poor physical development.
