I've seen so many vintage ads that they rarely shock me anymore. This one shocked me. I know that Ad Men were all about sexists ads but wow. "There there little lady. Don't worry about that nasty war, let your husband figure that out. " "You go shopping for furniture. "   Image via: http://mitchoconnell.blogspot.co.uk Save Save Save … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday- Protecto Bloomers

I don't know about you, but nothing screams, 'Oh, so fresh", like rubber pants once a month! It's hard to imagine how much ventilation that these actually provided*shudder* The self adjusting really is the selling point for me. I hate pins and such in my rubber pants. It's a darn shame they don't make these anymore. I would so stock up. Did anyone catch that they are reversible?  That must have been handy.

Albany-Life-1983

Hey Gang, its a new Wordless Wednesday Vintage Ad!! I have seen quite a few weird and bizarre ads but this one really gave me pause. How many men read it and thought?.... "How did they know?

  Wow! Could you image putting this on a baby? How on earth could metal wire be a good thing? Mr. Bernie wondered if it was made of lead wire. I wonder who the leading baby specialists were. Back alley butchers? This part slays me, "Sold by surgical dealers, department stores and baby shops." I think its creepy that you can get it a surgical dealer and baby shop. Yikes! This was in a 1932 issue of Good Housekeeping … [Read more...]

Vibra

I have heard of many uses for vibrators over the years but this is new. "Turn it on and relax." I wonder how loud this thing was. "It gives strength and vitality to weak and frail breasts" What in the heck is a weak and fail breast? What do you bet some man invented this? As a gal who has a larger chest, I wonder if wearing it would give me a black eye from the bouncing?   Image Source … [Read more...]
