slim waisted fashions.

The achievement of the profes
sional mannequins in displaying
the slim models without the as
sistance of corsets left many pro
fessional stylists skeptical, how
ever. They maintain that only ex
ceptional women can wear such
styles without the light girdle
that is so much worn today. Most
of them, they say, will need the
assistance of a little whalebone.
The importance of the corset

stylists were concerned, lay In
M. Lelongs evident' message that
he has no intention of suggesting
corsets for modern athletic wom
