A woman's figure is ideally proportioned when her bust and hips measure the same and her waist, 10 inches less. However, if you are tall, you can look well proportioned when your hips are as much Modern advertising and sales techniques have created a new kind of snob—the trade-name dropper. Like her first cousin, the name dropper, the trade-name dropper aims to impress you. The name dropper tries to let you know how important she is by "casually' clut- t e r i n g up her conversation with the names of important people. The trade-name dropper tries to let you know how much posses-. sions cost. She isn't so vulgar as to j come right out and tell you the i price. She just mentions the ex-j pensive-sounding trade name. ! Admire a dress she is wearing' and she, oh so casually, mentions j the label that is sewn inside it.; That lets you know that it isn't just j anl dress. It's a Glamorsack, no j less! ' Notice the clean lines of her new living room sofa and she'll mention, another trade name. That lets youj know the sofa isn't just modern,; it is the BEST modem. Whether she is wearing a new hat or carrying a new handbag, she is sure to bring the trade name into the conversation. It Has to Be "The Best" It isn't enough to the trade-name dropper that what she has bought is what she wants or even that you admire the purchase. She has got to let you know that it is "the best." And she thinks she has found the subtle way of .letting you know—by as 12 waist. inches larger than your [ just mentioning the trade mark.

Sometimes it's a question of good posture. The woman who holds her head high at all times will nevei develop a double chin. After checking your posture, try the following exercises each day for best results. Don't expect a great improvement immediately, though. Remember, it took several years to develop a really prominent double chin. But, after doing these exercises for just a few months, you'll see a marked improvement. Just knowing that you can restore youthful contours to your neck and jawline will encourage you to do the exercises faithfully each day. First, stand erect with feet about 18 inches apart, abdomen flat, chest high and head up. Do not tilt your chin. Place your hands on your hips for greater balance. Then, without moving your body, turn your head sharply to the right six times, then to the left six times. Next, turn your nead so that your chin is over your left shoulder, stretch your head further up to the ceiling. Then, turn the head so that the chin is over the | right shoulder and repeat the ex- know that she is being no more j ercise _ Repeat alternately six subtle than if she wore the pur- ti mes chase with the price tag still attached. The name dropper never fools anyone with the important names she sprinkles through her conversation. And the trade-name dropper never fools anyone, either. Finally, sit down in ture. Relax the head good pos- and neck muscles. Roll the head around in a circle, going as far forward and back on the neck as you can. Do this only twice as it may cause dizziness at first.
