Guessing ca.1950s ad for that mainstream torture device known as the long-line girdle. Add a pair of spiked heels, and she'll never be able to run away from you! Meanwhile, check out the before and after pics. Seems you also need to buy a new suit with more flattering lines and higher heels to make this miracle garment work. Hmmm. (And pssst, stand up straight!)

You can click to enlarge. It's after the jump.
