'Berlei-Camp Convalescing Support 2703 for Post-operative Wear'. The Berlei-Camp range was from the mid-to-late 1920s at around the time when Berlei was performing the studies that would lead to the creation of five figure types that revolutionised their corsetry.

The design has strong echoes of art deco angles. The woman's hair is shorter which became a fashionable style for women in the 1920s.
