Jane Russell, Bettie Page,
Marilyn Monroe, and Jane Mansfield -
what do these ladies have in common?
dangerous curves stuffed into eye catching bathing suits,
and retro clothing tailored to their bodies.
They were all pin-up girls
and they were all so very much sexier than
their closest equivalents today.
Playboy women like Pamela Anderson,
Kendra Wilkinson Baskett and Jenny McCarthy
have nothing on the retro glamour ladies.
Here are some tips we can take from a generation of women
who put it to shame ten times over, and then some.
Show your best assets:
For the pin-up gil, it was all about the curves. Curves, curves and more curves. Curvy meaning large chested, small waists and larger hips - parts of us that would be considered figure flaws by today's standards.
Unless you look at Kristen Bell,
and Dita Von Teese.
While they might not be as full figured as described as above, they sure lived up to the glamour standards of beauty and fashion as the originals.
If a pin-up girl has chubby thighs, she did not care. The look was touchable, sexy and soft - three things that you can achieve at any size.
Confidence. You wear it. And it is sexy. Look hot, relax and men will come crawling.
The most important thing a pin-up girl can wear is her smile.
