This limited edition large format giclée print of an advertisement originally appeared in “L’illustration” magazine in 1935. The magazine was devoted primarily to women with editorials and advertising that focused specifically on their needs and preferences of the times. The original artwork is believed to be either in a private collection or destroyed in WW II.

The undergarments were touted as "a wonderful new creation that forms the perfect sheath". The image was designed to highlight how the garments were cut perfectly to the shape of the body. The pose and attitude and how the x-ray effect accents the lines of the body are distinctive elements of this piece, as are the details in the hair, face and the one additional piece of clothing, the shoes.
