"Thank; heavens Jim likes me just a* I am," a plump matron at st 30 pounds owerwclght, answered c omplac- 2iitly. Which husband is doing his wife a favor, the one who expects her to, keep a neat, trim figure they can both be proud of, or the one who lets his wife believe that he likes her Just a-s she is, no matter what overeating does to her figure? A lot of women would undoubtedly say that the second wife has the best husband. But has .she actually? Isn't it better for n husband to encourage his wife to look as pretty and attractive as she possibly can than to let her become complacent in Ihe thought that she looks fine to her husband and that is all that matters? And isn't ft possible that the husband who has led his wife to believe that she alwnys looks good to him isn't being entirely honest? No matter how much a man loves a woman he wants Lo be proud 1 of her and certainly it is easier to he proud of a wife with a trim-looking figure Minn nf one who has let herself gel so overweight she can't find really becoming clothes or do justice Lo the ones she does buy. So don't be lulled into complacency by your husband If he claims you clont' need to reduce when you know very well that you do, or resentful if your husband tells you frankly you had better RO on a diet. Looking your best Is YOUR responsibility no mutter which type of liusband you have .

But it's wise to buy one good suit, of a washable fabric, it will do for next time and give you something to look presentable in. The shortie nightgown Is popular with those who do a wrestling match with full-length nighties. Really short with matching panties or knee-length, it's pretty as a baby.
