The 'Berlei-Camp side fastening maternity support 2711 for medium figures.' 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 in its angular design. The woman's hair is shorter which became a fashionable style in the 1920s.
