Believe it or not, the push to be hyper-thin hasn't always been present. In the '50s and '60s, women were sold the idea that a curvy, bodacious bod was best, and companies like Wate-On advertised that they could turn a skinny girl into a voluptuous vixen through their weight-gaining products. Whether Wate-On worked, it's refreshing to see a different kind of body type being coveted--one that doesn't promote a protruding hip or clavicle. Check out these fascinating vintage "anti-skinny" ads.
Bonus points for that brow cred.
Exceptions made for Josh Duggar, who need only write a note of apology to Jesus H. Christ.
Somebody call the wahmbulance.
