Looking at the so-called “ideal” female form day in and day out can be a little exhausting for a lot of women.
Whether it’s in magazines, on TV, or on huge billboards over the highway, constantly being told what you’re “supposed” to look like can really do a number on your confidence and self-esteem.
And it wasn’t much better in the past — if anything, it’s probably gotten better! Today, all kinds of women are learning to love and celebrate their bodies, no matter what society says is and isn’t “beautiful,” like the woman who shows how it’s not about how you look, it’s about how you feel.
In the past, it was the the classic pinup girls who upheld the beauty standards for women: thin, tall, and long-legged.
But amid all these slender beauties, there was someone else. You’ve probably never seen or heard of her, sadly, but she was there to prove that no matter your size, anyone can be seriously sexy.
Her name was Hilda, and she was the creation of artist Duane Bryers. This full-figured pinup appeared in calendars from the 1950s through the 1980s, and was fairly popular. But for some reason, she’s been lost to history.
But luckily, she’s been found again. Check her out (in more ways than one) below!
