Girls-How’s Your Muscular Corset? – Strength Magazine – September, 1924

Every now and again you run across some reference to that ‘·natural corset” of’ muscles with which every human being has been endowed, and which, if strong and in good conclition, keeps the human body trim and beautiful. Miss Christine Norman referred to it in her story appearing in the August number of STRENGTH, saying that for years she had worn no other. It has been a favorite notion of writers on physical training, for the very good reason that elastic strength of the waist line and abdominal region provides such a wonderful substitute for that now obsolete relic of barbarism, the old-fashioned corset.
