As a male person of the '90s, I find myself troubled. And it's all because of the Wonderbra, which is not to be confused with Wonder Woman, who doesn't need one.The Wonderbra is the new-fangled device that creates cleavage for the cleavage challenged. Maybe cleavage doesn't take it far enough. The Wonderbra gives a woman cleavage in much the way that erosion gave Arizona the Grand Canyon.Yes, it molds and shapes and pushes up, up, up. It's the Apollo missile of bras. It's got more wires than Bell Atlantic, and, if you trust the publicity, is the greatest scientific advance since cable TV.Here's what all the fuss is about: The Wonderbra is supposed to make Kate Moss look like Dolly Parton.

In a recent episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" called "The Bare Midriff," Larry David is disgruntled that his new secretary is wearing a shirt that exposes her tummy. When he confronts her, she tells him she's proud of her body and wants to flaunt it. "You can flaunt two-thirds of the day outside the office and then you have one-third non-flaunt," he tells her. "Why not take a break in the flaunt?" In white-collar offices across Maryland, "the flaunt" has become an issue and a distraction, particularly when it comes to interns who, professionals say, perennially show more daring than sense in their work wardrobes.

There once was a time when a woman's bosom was queen in the art of the tease. But then came Britney and her short baby-tees, making the midriff fashion's new must-see zone. And when low-slung pants became the rage, cleavage was nothing. A hint of derriere? Everything. Recently, however, there have been signs of a bosom renaissance. But the latest incarnation is not your grandmother's cleavage. Instead of tantalizing with glimpses of deep valleys nestled in plunging necklines, the focus has shifted south.

On the beach, in the boudoir, at a birthday bash, we're used to it. But on a cooking show? At a speaking engagement? On the campaign trail? Cleavage -- once hidden, covered or, at best, barely hinted at -- has been popping out in the most unexpected places lately. Famously conservative dresser Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton showed hers on the Senate floor recently. Billionaire book-writer (of children's books, no less) J.K. Rowling often reveals hers in promotional pictures and magazine shots.

OH ... MY ... GOD. Did you see it? Did you watch the debut of the XFL, the new smash-mouth football league that is the unholy offspring of Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Federation and NBC? Was that unreal or what? Let's see, here's a few things I jotted down in the old notebook while watching Saturday night's nationally-televised game between the New York/New Jersey Hitmen - say, there's a wholesome nickname - and Las Vegas Outlaws: big hits, cleavage, deafening rock music, cleavage, trash-talking, cleavage, dizzying camera angles, cleavage, goofy on-field interviews after big plays, cleavage.

The BCBG Max Azria contemporary sportswear is hard not to like. The dresses and separates are modern and fun, hip and wearable, not to mention moderately priced. Now here's another reason to like BCBG: The company just launched a new women's line with Nordstrom. The line, called BCBG Exclusively for Nordstrom, contains clothing that reflects BCBG style, but with a more casual, easy- to-wear feel. The new line, which arrived in stores this month, is sized more generously than the standard BCBG Max Azria cut. Prices range from $50 to $150.

BOSTON -- Among the endless reasons I will never run for public office is a deep-seated fear of having my wardrobe subject to the fashion police. Excuse me, the fashion shrinks - those media monitors who seek deep meaning in every shoe, sexual clues in every hemline, and psychological insights in every shirt collar. Just imagine the casual summer wardrobe that I am modeling so stylishly at this very moment. What would the fashionbabblers have to say about my well-worn khaki capris? That they display a certain comfort-first sensibility?

That great harbinger of summer, the swimsuit issue, has arrived at last. No! No! Not Sports Illustrated. The L.L. Bean Swimwear Guide, which we visited this year on the Internet (at www.llbean.com). Sculptured bodies with generous displays of flesh do not appear in the Bean bag. No teen-aged boys are going to grab the catalog before you get a chance to review it. The models are relentlessly wholesome. They look like moms, or big sisters. Swimsuit choices are sensible, not sensual. Bean offers no bikinis, let alone a thong -- unthinkable in Freeport, Maine.

Granted, it never was that great to begin with. But wait until you see tonight what the WB has done to "Hyperion Bay."The drama about a dying seaside town that's both rejuvenated and ripped apart when a computer company arrives is being re-launched under the guidance of Frank South, who most recently served as executive producer for "Melrose Place.""Hyperion" started as a family drama last fall under the care of Joseph Daugherty ("thirtysomething"). At the time, there was lots of talk about "quality" from the WB. But the series never found an audience, and quality is no longer Job One in Hyperion Bay.Carmen Electra, the former "Baywatch" star who married Dennis Rodman, joins the cast in tonight's episode titled "Young and on Fire."

Hold on to your dirndls!Just when you give up on a skirt style and banish it to the thrift shop, designers up and resurrect it. The mid-knee A-line made a strong appearance at the fall collections. Strong as in heavyweight designers. Ralph, Calvin and Donna showed knee-length. Marc Jacobs, who was back in business after a year's banishment, which may have been precipitated by his designer grunge period, did, too. When the old guard and young rebels plug into an idea you can be sure something's up, or coming down.

I wish to discuss a serious threat to our national security now being posed by a foreign brassiere.It's called the "Wonderbra." I found out about it via an article in the New York Times written by Emily Prager, who comes right out and states that she does not have any cleavage ("I have no cleavage" are her exact words).This is why she was interested in the Wonderbra, which is apparently a legend in the fashion community. It has been manufactured and sold for over 30 years in Great Britain, where it is extremely popular because it makes women appear to have a larger, more uplifted set of fashion accessories.

Cosmo girls who have been quaking in their do-me shoes and holding their bustier-ed breaths can relax.The first issue of Cosmopolitan magazine in the post-Helen Gurley Brown era, on newsstands now, is as refreshingly retro and singularly obsessed as ever.Bonnie Fuller's first issue marks a true changing of the guard -- she is 40 years old, compared to the legendary Brown's 75, and thus at least within short-term-memory distance of Cosmo's twentysomething readership.Fuller has added a cleaner design and a somewhat updated sensibility, but respectfully keeps the wild and wacky Cosmo girl aesthetic that Brown personified in print and in person.
