SUMMER COSTUME CALLS FOR COSTLY CORSET
BY MAYBELLE MORTIMER.
Just what one is going to do if the
"darted" basque comes back in style
is the uncomfortable query that is
being asked at-present on every hand.
"Will we have t& change the shape
of our corsets?" is one of the first
questions that is asked. Just now
the lines of the new corset are the
"natural" ones with the large waist,
low bust and few bones. Under this
is worn a soft chimese and over it
one petticoat and perhaps, if the frock
is thin, a brassiere of lace and em
broidery. The one-piece negligee has been
discarded for pleated or full skirts of
soft silk or wool goods with coatees
of satin or lace. .
To get back to the corset, which is
the most important of a woman's at
tire. Let it be costly as the purse can
buy, for, if the habit proclaims the
man, ypu can place the woman by the
fit and'style of her corset.
