For women who have cutaneous allergic reactions to nickel and who are irritated by their stocking suspender buckles, a thin cloth covered foam rubber pad which fastens conveniently under the buckles is available. These come four in a package. A package will retail for about a dollar. The product is called "Suspeze." It is available from Cuties (Rodmill) Ltd., Liverpool, England. In this country they may be obtained on a wholesale or retail basis from Mrs. Sylvia Kerr, 191 Millard St., Moorpark, Calif.The pads are easily attached and removed, stay in place well, may be laundered. Fastidious women may find them bulky for wear with very tight skirts. They do not bulge or roll up.
