Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that being flat chested must have been part of the "fashion of the day" ?

I think girls were a lot more petite back then.

That's a nice picture of fashion back in the day. Good for reference when I look for clothes for my youngest daughter. Thanks

That's one seriously industrial looking fender brace in the background...

They didn't have the super bra technology back then.

It's not a matter of bras, .... it was actually "fashion" to bind those puppies down
and flatten 'em. Curvy women were decidedly OUT of fashion !

Dave, they didn't want it back then! They even sold "corsets for the bosom" for those ladies with ahem, more endowment, so they could appear "sheik" too.

"With silken legs and scarlet lips
We’re young and hungry, wild and free,
Our waists are round about the hips
Our skirts are well above the knee
We’ve boyish busts and Eton crops,
We quiver to the saxophone
Come, dance before the music stops
for who can bear to be alone?”
James Laver – The Women of 1926
But by 1929, the look was changing with lower hemlines, and waists back up to, well, where waists really are!

Victoria's Secret had not been invented then, and push up bras were non existent.

just sayin'

Ah, if you go back a bit more, "push ups" were the rage, with low cut--think of the wenches in Shakespeare's day! Styles just change over time, but nowadays there's faster communications and folks don't just bow to what Paris says is "it"--however, young folks seem to find crazy things to wear--like underwear as outerwear!

I never understood the fascination with mega mammaries. Time and gravity makes for a cruel combination. I'll go with the old saying; More than a handful is a waste, and less than a mouthful is a shame. ;-)
Hope I don't get banned for my opinion.

No added chemicals in the foods of the day.

Can't tell about the one in black, but the one in white sure looks to be mighty pretty.

Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable and many others would be considered to fat and chubby by todays standards.

Ever notice the Dallas Cowboys cheerleader? They all look like Barbie Dolls!

The fashion models on the fashion runways are almost anorexic. Skinny and sticklike is in I guess.

For more on women's fashion in the 1920s, watch "Thoroughly Modern Millie." It touches on this topic directly.

A friend of mines wife used to work for a major poultry company in the research department. She said it was a problem sometimes that the experimental hormones for larger breast on the chicken would be stolen from the labs because it worked well on women as well.

I must agree, top heavy is not a good thing, in women, zero turn lawnmowers or loaded trucks. Eventually all 3 will give trouble.
