Humans without Hips or Waists – February 1925

A friend of mine recently received a catalogue from a London firm of ladies’ tailors or costumiers accompanied by a letter. In this, they expressed their regret that they had not received any of her esteemed orders for the last two or three years, and invited her to let them know what style she wished and they would endeavour to meet her requirements.

They were confident of giving her fullest satisfaction as in the past. She replied, thanking them for the letter and catalogue, and adding that in the latter she noted illustrations of beings, whether youths or maidens she could not say, with cropped hair, no waists, and no hips, and something which might be a remnant of a skirt a yard wide.

As she was still a woman with bust and hips and rodundity of figure she did not see that they could have anything in their establishment to fit her, nor possess a tailor whose tape-measure was long enough. Again thanking them, etc., etc.

One fancies the firm would not trouble the scornful and sarcastic lady with another communication.
