Fifties women: often with short hair and in slacks



The girl on the left is sporting a very typical look from the time.

    They are very different from present day women. To begin with, they have waists.

      Well, they are models. But your general point stands. It irritates me when I see claims that “real women have curves”, which translates to “are fat”. I remember when young women at least were mostly slim. I have posted pictures on this before. Women today tend to be overweight for the simple reason that they eat too much.

        When I think of curves, I think of Sophia Loren. She very much has a waist. They must be confused about something.

        In revisiting this post, I failed to mention the glaringly obvious. They are wearing slacks and have their hair cut short but still manage to look feminine. What happened?

        I think that is an interesting question and I suspect I have touched on it before when I have shown other pictures of women from that era. And it fits with my personal recollection. I think women looked softer and happier then because they were not under (often self-imposed) pressure to do as much as they now try to do.
