- THIS or-r-THIS "
You say without a moment's hesitation
that the figure to the left is the stout
one. Why? Because her.posture and
form contour express a.dispr6r3o4ionate
ness that is commonly designated as
"stoutness.-" . "
The figure xto the right you say is not
stout because there is a trimne'ss, a shapeli
ness evident that classify her in your mind'
as a graceful large woman.
Both Women the Same Size.
Both reproductions are of the same woman the differ
ence being that in the one on the right she is dressed correctly
while In the other on the.left she is dressed incorrectly.
No woman no matter what her size or figure, no matter
how stout she may really be, need any longer appear stout when
she can procure such charming "personalized" apparel as is
now displayed at each ot the Lane Bryant three stores, or sent
to yoa by mall on approraL
Lane Bryant are the originators and largest manufactur
ing retailers, of scientifically proportioned apparel for every
type of stout figure both the long and short waisted. Lane
Bryant were the first tho pioneers to provide for stout
wornen (both the long and the short waisted), the opportunity
of procuring stylish ready-to-wear apparel that fit and become
their figures practically without alteration.
Three Heights for Every Size
Lane Bryant aTe the only manufacturers who make wom
en's apparel in three heights for every size just as shoes come
in several widths for every length.
Practically Without Alterations
The success of this method is evident in their
daily experience of fitting 78 women out of every
100, practically without alteration. They . have
served over 200,000 stout women, including every
type of figure and therefore know thoroughly the re
quirements of the stout woman.

The Basis of the Transformation
The Lane Bryant Corsets & Brassieres are the
basis of the transformation and assure the wearer
perfect fit and comfort at all times. They are scien
tifically designed to reduce the stout figure, and give
it the individuality, the grace and poise that pro
claim the well dressed woman.
The Lane Bryant outer apparel are the last
whispers of Fashion's decree, combining tasteful
smartness with patriotic simplicity. In each line,
they reflect a charming individuality that is most
complimentary to the wearer.
The matronly as well as the youthful stout
woman can find at Lane Bryant, clothes that are
specially designed to fit her figure practically with
out alteration clothes that work a transformation
of the figure that is truly remarkable.
Expert Mail Order Se'rvice
There are "inconspicuously smart" coats, suits, dresses, blouses, separate
skirts, sport things, robes d'interior, etc Everything to wear ready-to-wear and very
moderately priced, because Lane Bryant manufactures almost everything themselves.
If you are unable to call at any one of their three stores, you can shop in an
eaually satisfactory manner through their Mail Order Department, which has been es
tablished for many years and has served many thousands of stout women from all parts
of the country. Write today to their New York address, Dept. W. for a free copy
