Don’t Let Them Call You Skinny!

A reminder of those pockets in history when it was sexier to have some junk in your trunk.

Ha! Love this. All I'm left wondering is, what's ironized yeast? Or Wate-On, for that matter? How interesting...

Wow, so funny how the image of beauty can change so much in a rather short period of time! Calling people fat now is like calling people skinny back then, it's crazy.

I looked at the list of ingredients Jillian and Maize Oil is the number 1- not exactly a scientific breakthrough in weight gain.

Elsa, the ads are from the fifties and sixties- but this stuff was actually still available until very recently.
