Try Lingerie In Fitting Room By NEA Beauty Editor Do you know that Jit in lingerie can greatly affect fit in outer clothing? You want your skirts to stay put and your belts to hug your waistline. If you are to have that perfect fit with comfort, remember to wear the lingerie for the dress when your measurements are taken or when you, yourself, use a tape measure. Otherwise, you may have the ex- perience of a perfectly Jilting »klrt cutting your flesh at the waistline because of extra bulk given you by your lingerie. Try on a petticoat or slip with the dress you want It for. Some are made with flared skirts, others with column-slender lines. Some have trimming on the skirt edge which In some cases adds bulk. There are stiff materials and clinging ones. Some slips will fit you while others will give you a misshapen figure which your carefully chosen dress can't correct. You may ask your salesgirl for » slip *ut for misses', women's or junior figures or for a. bias or a straight out. There are crepes, satins, taffetas and knitted fabrics, each suitable for different dress fabrics and cuts. Be sure to try yours in the fitting room to get the one that keeps your dress nattering.
