    Shapes Ahoy

    Men who venture out to the beach this year will be swimming in dangerous waters—if they don’t want to find themselves deep in a romance! Because today’s mermaids, judging by this crop of Hollywood sea sirens, are practically irresistible. A warning for the girls, though. The new swim- suits, in vivid cottons, lastex and knitted sheaths, bring out a gal’s best lines—but they also reveal the bulges. So if you want to lure the lads, trim those lines, lassies. Because it’s the shape you’re in that will decide whether you’ll shine in the sun or solo in the shade!
