n. a term used widely until the 1970s to describe various women's undergarments such as girdles, bustles, corsets, etc. Girdles and corsets slimmed down the moderately obese lady who could tolerate them. Corsets also gave an hourglass figure to a thin person, such as Scarlett O'hara.
Mrs. Gottrocks went to the foundations department at Neiman Marcus to check out the lastest styles in girdles.
