"The Straight Military Front"

An antique advertisement for the Foster Hose Supporter, which is “the only supporter with a pad large enough and supporting bands strong enough to push back the entire abdomen assuring the wearer a correct standing position and the much desired straight front.”

I’m pretty sure anyone would agree that, “much desired” or not aesthetically, the image on the right showing the Foster in use is not a correct standing position. I’m no doctor, but I think a real doctor would call this “Straight Military Front” a sway back.
