So said Christian Dior today in announcing that he will market ready-made girdles and bras then in the new shape, he’s sponsorings this season. Otherwise the fashion czar kept his H-foundation a dark secret, re fusing to permit photos or sketches, or even to let fashion reporters have a quick peek at the under garments which flatten the bust while raising it several inches. He would admit only that the new bra is really only a half-bra, with the upper part of the cup missing. Women who have protested that they are too bosomy to conform to the flat look were assured that they will be all fitted in Dior’s special H-line girdles and bras, to be sold in his own shop here and a few exclusive French lingerie shops. Lily of France, an American company, will sell them in the United States and Canada. Included will be a day girdle, an evening girdle, a short bra and a long bra. There’ll be nothing exotic about the colors or mate rials. But the prices? “Well, of course,” said a repre sentative, “there’ll be a Dior label and the prices will be Dior prices.” Citizen Advertisements Help Save You Money Enjoy An Evening At LOGUN'S.
