That person wilt have to be satisfied with fashion in its simplest form, and must refrain from even thinking of garments adaptable to her more slender relatives and friends At present the main object seems to be the attainment of as large a Swaist measurement as possible, and the Swoman who can triumphantly announce Sthat her paat-normal 26-in. waist haa developed into 33 in. may feel she is indeed in the front rank of fashion. - It is fortunate that this sudden . change of outline should come just at n the time when everyone is about to re g plenish her wardrobe.
