GIRDLE GIRLS


We wore all sorts of undergarments - pointy bras, girdles, waist cinchers, etc - in hopes of obtaining the hour glass figure that was popular at the time.  Our body was not supposed to jiggle.

  1. My goodness, the tortures women have had to go through to attain the feminine ideal. Whenever my wife and I watch a film from the 50s, we're always amazed that every leading actress seems to have an 18 inch waist.

  2. Yes, and wearing girdles was never questioned. I guess the "bra-less" generation changed that.
