Bringin' It Back!

Found this bit of advertising yesterday. I sure enjoyed reading it and giggled after the first few sentences.

I wonder if ice cream could have the same affect on these "skinny, scrawny" women.

Oh how times have changed! Now we pay big bucks to look skinny.


Um ... I'd like to bring this idea back, please. But, I think I'm gonna need your support.

Is there some type of petition we can sign? Come on ... get the word out! Curvy = Glamorous. I'd even go a step further and say Chunky could also = Glamorous.

So, spread the word, would ya'? Skinny is out! "Firm, attractive flesh" as mentioned in the ad is in! Yay!  (Aw, shoot ... it's from 1953.)

36 - 24 - 36? If I had some extra "flesh", I wouldn't need a Victoria's Secret miracle.

Love how the ad assumes the mailman is a man. hehehe

Daphne- Sign me up! I am with you! Skinny is out! It should be attractive to have some "chunky" on your bones!
Everyone should go for that "I've just had four babies and have the stretched out skin and pregnancy craving fat to prove it" look!

YES PLEASE! Let's get back to the Marilyn Monroe-esque size 8 figure being the model instead of waif figurines with no collarbone! Reblogging this...

You've got my vote in Chunky = Glamorous. My grandmother always told me to keep on a few extra pounds, because you never know when you're going to get sick and need them. I guess I took her advice to heart. :-)
