Too Small Is Too Bad BY ALICIA HART >'EA Beauty Editor Certain items of clothing and accessories may fit perfectly whei they're acquired, but they can become too small as a woman grows older. Such items include belts. Belt, may never actually grow too smal but it's very discouraging to see that well-worn notch unused, whiL the next one wider is now getting the business. The solution here is apt to get a new, larger belt. This can be buckled in the first notch This is far less discouraging anc certainly few things make a woman look fatter than a belt let out as far as it will go. Good jewelry and wedding rings also fall Into this category. A choker can get lost between chins and be downright uncomfortable. An engagement ring can stop circulation as a hand grows plumper. A watch can cause a rash if it's too tight. Most of these can be remedied. New links can be added, new pearls put in a string. Good jewelers can augment the size of a ring. Necklines and waistlines of dresses can eet too tight with ease. These should get the careful attention of a home sewer, if the clothes are worrh it. Something too small is by far more fattening than a larger size that fits. We Are Discontinuing Sho-Form Brassieres ALL SHO-FORM BRASSIERES (Other than Nursing Brassieres) WED. & THURS.
