      Below is a charming antique postcard, sporting a perfume advertisement -     sent by the estimable Dean.  The filesize has been kept fairly large to retain legibility.  Conglomerate translation under picture,
courtesy Frank and Catherine.

3. Dressing* the Parisian lady

To be even more provocative** she resorts to perfume. After this inebriating shower she is even more provocative.
By all devices*** you tempt us, Lady!  You do not forget any way to be even more provocative. 
You know how to use perfume.

*    In this context, "faire sa toilette" has two meanings: to get washed, and to get dressed
**    In fact, 'troublante' would be 'subtly provocative', but I cannot find a word that conveys the meaning. Other words
       found in the dictionary: disturbing; arousing (the French word is not quite as graphic as this).
***    alternative : means, ways.

 

 

 

 

 

Looks more like a tight belt under the suit than a corset...

 

 

 

 

A fine antique postcard image,
sent by Stephen K.:

"No visible corset, but certainly a visibly corseted figure!"

 

 

 

 

  

A cute vintage postcard
from Stephen K:

"I suppose in terms of relative naughtiness this is the 1900
equivalent of skinny-dipping: corset-paddling!"

Wouldn't we we all like to see her on the beach?

Scott:

 "A 1909 postcard by Xavier Sager. BIG hats were in style then and, of course, the long corset."
