1902. Pratt writes in her Introduction: Women, particularly, cannot be well and wear corsets so tight as they do. Tight-lacing brings about a dreadful condition of all of the vital organs and nine women out of ten are victims of constipation. Many do not consider that anything, but it is an awful curse, and only right healthful living will correct it. Medicine only aggravates it; the cause must be removed. Tight lacing is not the only cause; food has much to do with it; so I beg of all who read this book to see to it that all of the internal organs are in right position to perform their various functions, and that proper food and exercise are taken to bring about an absolutely natural healthy condition.
