    Vintage Weight GAIN Ads from 1930s-1950s. (totally would've loved this, growing up as a beanpole. hahaha! you get teased a lot for being a gangly stick figure. curves are beautiful and I can't understand why ladies would rather by twigs.) CRAZY HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED!

    See how times have changed. Vintage ads that told girls how to stop being skinny and get some sexy curves by gaining weight. http://www.retronaut.co/2011/11/vintage-weight-gain-ads/

    Ugh, it's so sad and so offensive. Fuck these sexist beauty standards. Fuck 'real women have curves' bullshit. What the fuck is a real woman? And the marketing strategy? Men love me know that I'm 10 pounds heavier? Because naturally, a man's opinion on women's bodies is the most important. Fuck it, fuck this bullshit.

    gained 10 pounds & she has all the dates she wants - the good old days when women had curves!

Brings back memories of my neighbor when I was little. His name was Rufus Arnold and his business was candy. He had a panel van and the inside was like a candy story. Once in a while he would let us see inside and pick out a treat. She smell was amazing!
