front; and, if the jaw be wide, it is in appearance diminished, by 

bringing the corners of the bonnet sloping to the point of the chin. 

 

A person having a long neck has the neck of the bonnet descending, the 

neck of the dress rising, and filling more or less of the intermediate 

space. One having a short neck has the whole bonnet short and close in 

the perpendicular direction, and the neck of the dress neither high nor 

wide. 

 

Persons with narrow shoulders have the shoulders or epaulets of the 

dress formed on the outer edge of the natural shoulder, very full, and 

both the bosom and back of the dress running in oblique folds, from the 

point of the shoulder to the middle of the bust. 

 

Persons with waists too large, render them less before by a stomacher, 

or something equivalent, and behind by a corresponding form of the 

dress, making the top of the dress smooth across the shoulders, and 

drawing it in plaits to a narrow point at the bottom of the waist. 

 

Those who have the bosom too small, enlarge it by the oblique folds of 

the dress being gathered above, and by other means. 

 

Those who have the lower posterior part of the body too flat, elevate it 

by the top of the skirt being gathered behind, and by other less skilful 

adjustments, which though hid, are easily detected. 

 

Those who have the lower part of the body too prominent anteriorly, 

render it less apparent by shortening the waist, by a corresponding 

projection behind, and by increasing the bosom above. 

 

Those who have the haunches too narrow, take care not to have the bottom 

of the dress too wide. 

 

Tall women have a wide skirt, or several flounces, or both of these: 

shorter women, a moderate one, but as long as can be conveniently worn, 

with the flounces, &c., as low as possible. 

 

 

OF BEAUTY. 

 

Additional indications as to beauty are required chiefly where the woman 

observed precedes the observer, and may, by her figure, naturally and 

reasonably excite his interest, while at the same time it would be rude 

to turn and look in her face on passing. 

 

There can, therefore, be no impropriety in observing, that the conduct 

of those who may happen to meet the women thus preceding, will differ 

according to the sex of the person who meets her.--If the person meeting 

her be a man, and the lady observed be beautiful, he will not only look 

with an expression of pleasure at her countenance, but will afterward 

turn more or less completely to survey her from behind.--If the person 

meeting her be a woman, the case becomes more complex. If both be either
