The Marilyke Look

New York, N. Y. (Time Mag.) June 27, '55

Some of Manhattan's department stores and some of suburban New Jersey's dress shops were getting used to a new kind of invasion last week. Potential customers enter, inspect the dresses and select the models worthy to bear a tag proclaiming them fit for a Roman Catholic girl.

Each tag, for which startled retailers are charged 3cents, "to cover the cost of shipping - and mailing," is illustrated with a picture of the Virgin Mary, the trade name "Marilyke" and the motto, "Whatever our Blessed Mother approves." It also bears a list of specifications for Marilyke dresses, among them: "Full coverage for the bodice, chest shoulders, back and arms"; no cutouts lower than two inches below neckline, no transparent, or flesh-colored material to give the impression of nudity; sleeves halfway between shoulder and elbow; nothing that will "unduly reveal the figure of the wearer."

Marilyke crusaders concentrate on evening dresses and bridal gowns; swimming suits are too unforeseeable-the same bathing suit might be acceptable on one girl and immodest on another girl several sizes larger.


Calendars Dress Up - No Nudes for 1957 Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 26, '55

Roger Turner, sales executive for the Kemper-Thomas Co., of Cincinnati, said: "All the major firms have turned thumbs down on nudes for the 1957 line.

Spanish Bathers Must Cover up. Madrid, Aug. 11, '53-(UP)
It's back to bloomers and Victorian modesty on Spanish beaches this year.

Vogue notwithstanding, Spain's traditionally strict code of morality will be adhered to by all seaside visitors, both foreign and domestic, unless they wish to be arraigned for indecent exposure.

In a memorandum issued by police headquarters here, men and women looking forward to the restful pleasures of sand and sea were reminded to be clothed "with the traditional modesty and good taste becoming Spaniards."

The memorandum, published in all the papers, admonished against current indecencies of strapless and two-piece bathing suits, bikinis and G-strings.

The memorandum said, "swimming suits should cover both chest and back adequately. Women's bathing suits should have a skirt and men must wear sport-shorts.

"Swimming suits may not be worn on beaches, at clubs, bars, restaurants, boats or generally outside the water.

"Bathing suits are intended to be worn in the water only and therefore cannot be tolerated elsewhere. "Sun-bathing cannot be permitted unless a bathrobe is worn or unless the beach is completely isolated, and the sexes are separated. In this case the sun-bather must wear a bathing costume."

Candy Cigarette Ban Sought in North Dakota., Bismarck, N. D., Feb. 14, '53 (AP)

The North Dakota Senate has passed a bill prohibiting sale of candy cigarettes and another outlawing dancing in the dark.

Sen. E. C. Stucke, one of the sponsors of the candy cigarette bill, said, "If we can help eliminate things which tend to encourage young folks from starting to smoke, we will be doing a good thing."

In support of his dancing in the dark ban, Sen. Duncan Frazer said, "Some of these dance halls are so dark you can't see who is dancing next to you and it enables people to drink on the floors without being seen."
