THE LADIES of Rylstone Calendar, illustrated with discreet nude photos of English matrons, has crossed the Great Pond to sink or swim in the land of liposuction. Reconfigured to cover 18 months instead of 12 and beginning with June 2000 instead of January, it hit U.S. bookstores in time for Mother's Day, and what began as a self-mocking fund-raiser continues its metamorphosis into a phenomenon. The calendar was the inspiration of members of the Women's Institute of Rylstone in Yorkshire, a silver-haired sisterhood of the pearls-and-twin-set set that meets monthly to hear lectures on homespun topics and raise money for charity.
