COLUMBUS, Ohio - Limited Inc. reported yesterday that first-quarter profit rose 62 percent on lower costs. The second-largest U.S. clothing retailer also changed its name to Limited Brands, a name that it feels better reflects its transformation from a collection of specialty retailers to a family of brands. Net income in the quarter that ended May 4 increased to $49.9 million, or 10 cents a share, from $30.7 million, or 7 cents, a year earlier, the owner of Limited and Express stores said in a statement.

Raphael B. Malsin, 95, who for more than three decades was a top executive of the Lane Bryant retail chain founded by his mother, died Friday at his home in Harrison, N.Y. He was the son of David Bryant, a New York jeweler who died in 1900, and Lena Himmelstein Bryant. It was Mrs. Bryant who, as a widowed seamstress, opened in 1904 the small Manhattan dressmaking business that eventually grew into the Lane Bryant chain. In 1940, he became chief executive of Lane Bryant Inc., and at his mother's death in 1951, the company she founded had become the largest "special-size" chain in the country, catering to women who wear larger sizes.

With her cropped gray hair, carefree stance and very normal-looking body, MaryannAnt looks like a real human being. But she's not. In reality, she's a virtual model, a computer composite of a person. The real person she's based on is Mary Ann Anthony of Fogelsville, Pa. Granted, the real Anthony's hair is a little longer and grayer, her face and body a little more mature. "My husband would love it if I looked like that," Anthony exclaimed when she first saw her virtual model sporting youthful-looking skin in a swimsuit.

They are best friends. They share the same beliefs and feelings, the same sense of style, the same color preferences. And between them, there's 50 year's worth of fashion sense and sensibility.But 25-year-old identical twins Rebecca and Jennifer Cormeny have their own closets and basically their own wardrobes. That doesn't mean that Jennifer won't take a trip down the hallway to peer into her sister's closet. Often, she's stymied by the sheer number of shoes she encounters. For it is Rebecca who tends to accumulate the most footwear, earrings and fashion sundries.

It is not clear why Mr. Norman Brown chose Lane Bryant, the clothing store that caters to the big-boned woman, for his shopping spree. Maybe he needed a "special size" in pajamas and just couldn't find it at the Big & Tall Men's Store.Whatever. Lane Bryant is where we find Norman Brown as he gathers some articles of clothing, approaches the cashier and announces that he has, alas, no cash.No cash? No problem. The cashier hands Norman a credit application. He fills it out. He writes his name, his address, his Social Security number.

New York -- At the ubiquitous local outlets for the Gap, or the more scattered branches of Lane Bryant (stores for full-figured women) and Merry-Go-Round (for svelte youth), customers continue to honor an American religion: shopping.But at J. C. Penney's, Woolworth's, Sear's, Child World, Circuit City, Businessland and many other retailers, customers have seemingly lost the habit. Sales are lackluster and profits depressed. And these stores may be far more indicative of the current environment.
