Bigger is Better: Old Weight Gain Ads

Girls forget about being too skinny! Back in the day--it was all about the curves! Some of the most beautiful stars from the Fifties had soft, womanly shapes as opposed to the yoga toned bodies of the 2012.
These ads tout the fastest ways to “add pounds” and curves!  It's clear that being skinny was not the way to be!
Why do you think the image of beauty changed?
 Special thanks to FB Page--Will Work for Cheese for sharing these images! the image.
