The fairy belt shrinks your waist two to three inches smaller than it's original size

My very kind Mother-in-law gave me a very old magazine dated 26 February 1898. In this magazine there is an advert for the original fairy belt:

The Fairy Belt
An unique invention which changes the form of the waist from oval to round, making it look two to three inches smaller, though its measurement remains really unaltered. The corsets may even be loosened, and the fairy waist effect remains. Send present size of waist outside corsets, together with P.O. for 3/8, and the Fairy Belt will be dispatched per return of post. The money is returned in full it it fails to please.

A free trial of three days allowed!

So there you have it, that is how these ladies used to get into those wonderful dresses. Please leave me a comment if you found this article interesting. Fairy wishes Sharon x
