Warning! Shoo the children and small domestic animals away from your computer and out of the room! Shield your eyes if you think your delicate sensibilities might get bruised! Later on in this post, I will show an old advertisement for a bra.
I finished up my work week none too soon. Tomorrow I get my annual mammogram. It’s time to make sure that my girls are healthy! I hope that you get your annual checkup too, if you are of the female gender. Please call and make an appointment if it has been more than a year! Promise you will? Girl Scout’s honor?
When you are as ancient as me, you will recall the bizarre advertisements they used to have for bras. For such a button-up and conservative time period, it was amazing that magazine readers would routinely get a visual assaults of the latest underwear fashions.
For a creep-out session, do a Google image search like I did for “vintage bra advertisements”. Keep tissues and disinfectant handy! The styles were hideous back in the day. And it seems that the models always looked a little bit crazed, as if they were excited beyond belief that their girls were secured with a 10-pound combination of industrial strength fabric, wiring, and elastic, all carefully crafted into cone-like support structures.
This model looks especially pleased to be wearing her Maidenform bra while she does a little target practicing in the Wild, Wild West. Yikes! What exactly were those advertising folks thinking back then?! I hope this doesn’t give you nightmares tonight, LOL!
