She's just about this size?" says TV actor Tom Poston, demonstrating the woes of a mere male trying to boy a present in ladles' lingerie. FOR MEN ONLY: How to shop for your W HEN MEN GO SHOPPING for women, they invariably go wrong. Turn any 100 men loose in ladies' wear, tell them to buy their favorite girl a Valentine's Day present--and 95 of them will buy the wrong sizes. For some reason, men can remember a woman's shape, but not her size. And they're too gentlemanly--or shy to ask. The average man has no trouble memorizing the dimensions of his pet movie star, but he's too embarrassed to ask his girl her measurements. He'd rather tell some salesgirl: "She's just about your size." Even the lion-hearted male who does ask probably will goof when he goes shopping for his girl. The main trouble is that most women don't know their correct size. A new consumer information booklet put out by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union points out that there are nine separate categories of sizes in women's clothing alone, as well as different sizing standards for hats, gloves, stockings, and shoes. Here's the list: Subteen sizes 7-14: forplumpish girls aged 7 to 14. Teen sizes S-16: for trim-figured girls aged 12 to 16. Junior sizes 5-17: for any female 5'4" to 5'6", and short-waisted, regardless of age. Misses standard sizes 6-20: for those 5'5" to 5'9" with slim or medium figures, and normal or lowish waistlines. Petite sizes 8-20: for short slim women under 5'5". . (This size is said to include 78 per cent of all women.) Tall sizes 8-20: for those 5'9" or taller. Women's sires 18-44: for those 5'5" to 5'9" with large proportions. Women's out-sizes 46-52: for those 5'S" to 5'9" witli larger proportions. Half-sizes 12V2-26Y2: for heavier, short-waistcd women under 5'5". If all these categories confuse the women themselves, no wonder men have shopping problems. But there arc solutions. For instance, movie fashion designer Jean Louis advises other men to keep the standard dress size--like 14 or 16--in mind as a reliable guide to buying gowns, slips, robes, and blouses. Designer Hannah Troy feels it's even easier if the man concentrates on a single statistic. "The bust measurement is something most men can memorize," says Mrs. Troy. "And if he tells a salesgirl the bust size, she can figure out the correct dress size. For instance, a 32 bust means a standard size 10, a 34 equals s' 'e 12, 36 equals size 14, and so on." Or he can cut out the little chart below, have his favorite girl out, and carry it in his wallet. --OLGA CURTIS Her shopping statistics Height: Weight: Bust: Waist: Hips: -. - '-. ,-.-,' s'..-- '· Dress size: Shoe size: Glove size: Hat size: ' ' Stocking size: PholofLraphcd at It.
