    Shows a woman standing on a pier overlooking the sea. Her bonnet, dress, and two large transparent wings attached to her back give her the appearance of a large wasp. In the background another woman wears a similar costume. The caption suggests that 'wasp-waisted women' might adopt this costume 'with advantage'.
