Let's face it, at my age women do not find any joy in looking to update their bathing attire for the summer. The last time these thighs saw daylight in any kind of --shape, I was dating :a guy who  wore his hair in a duck tail and drove a Nash, whose hottest fea- ture was that the seat. folded :down. r I noticed that the  fashion iridus- try, in an effort tO be more Sensi- tive to women's needs, has made a real commitment to make women feel more comfortable with their bodies no matter what size of shape. This year the fashion AROUND TOWN Nancy Katz industry has recommended the following for the summer: skirts so short that they start under your arms and end somewhere up around your ears, and high heel shoes stacked so .high you are guaranteed a nose bleed the first time you attempt to stand. At this point in my life. if I even attempt- cd this bizarre look, I would come off as some mutant strain belong- ing to the gone tree of the Incredible Hulk. Oh, we know there are other things going on in the world that should cause us more worry than trying to fit in a bathiiig suit. The economy is difficult, the war isn't quite over and the job market is bleak. But life goes on and so does our search for the perfect Lycra stretch material. For women, there are two kinds of bathing suits. For some strange reason the French, wouldn't you know it, came out a few years ag o with a bathing suit that was cut so high around the thighs and deep into the body that the only women who could qualify to wear this: were those that had no bones, .hips or skin. The women or models basically were, for all intents and purposes, nothing more than a human slinky toy. Models for this suit were so thin they could fold themselves in half to slink down the stairs. Naturally women went wild for this kind of challenge; in fact, I've even seen it on the television show 'q'he Fear Factor." Women sweated, dieted, had the fat sucked out of there very being until they could no longer be seen except through a microscope and generally worshipped the French cut bathing suit to the point of answering the telephone in with, "Parley vows France, you all." Then there is the other bathing suit, appropriately called "Lost the school nurse narrated the dan- gers of some kind of disease in the background. Sometimes you would see this style on Soviet run television, where a women look- ing like a Kremlin and wearing a mustache was doing sit-ups to the Soviet national anthem. The trick to buying a bathing suit today is all in the timing. For instance, you don't want to shop for a suit if you are retaining water, have just spoken to your adult children on the phone or tried to pump your own gas for the first time. : Now the optimum time for Hope." Let's just say they com " .shopping for that. sOILis immedf- -'in sizes with:an X after themor atelyafter surgeiT=Ot atest like a :"Good" stamped on one side and ,Year, stamped on the other back- Side.
