      How do you look in your bathing suit? Actually an add to gain weight and have some curves.... Obviously vintage ad... Lol

      Wow! Curvy is pretty! At one point women actually would gain weight for an ideal bathing suit body... now we all are crunching to lose weight

      Everybody wants what they can't have. People actually walked and didn't eat so much back then. Mostly because they couldn't afford it. You may say you are living in the wrong era when you see this, but you'd be skinny trying to gain weight too.

      This is why so many people are over weight. Gain weight so you will look good in your bathing suit. Eat all your food before you can get up from the table. Geez
