Hilda by Duane Bryers – via hoodoothatvoodoo

Duane Bryers’ “Hilda” — The First Illustrated Plus Size Pin Up Girl

Duane Bryers was the first illustrator to use plus size models as subjects in his pin up art. Unlike the stick-thin, female icons so popular today, Hilda has not one angular feature. She sublimely embodies the old fashioned womanly ideals of “round and soft”. She is feminine to the nth degree.

If one’s natural male instinct is to respond to the rounder, softer, more generously proportioned woman, you will understand why there is so much to like about her. From her long, soft legs, girlish face, plump, inviting arms, to her hips, round and wide, you see a vision of femininity forming in front of you. Add to all that her ample, well-developed breasts, soft, yielding tummy and glorious hip-waist ratio, and you discover she is an ideal example of full-figure perfection. The perfect plus size, pear-shaped, nubile beauty.

sophia loren – boy on a dolphin (1957)

imagePhaedra is a poor sponge diver on the lovely Greek isle of Hydra. While diving, she discovers an ancient brass and gold stature of a boy riding a dolphin, which is said to have the magical power to grant wishes. Her shiftless boyfriend wants to sell it to an unscrupulous art collector, but Phaedra wants to give it to anthropologist Jim Calder, who would return it to the Greek government.

Originally, the film was to star Cary Grant. It was four days into shooting in Greece when Grant canceled. His wife, Betsy Drake, had survived the sinking of the Andrea Doria ocean liner and he went to be with her. Robert Mitchum was then considered, before Alan Ladd was finally signed to play Dr. James Calder.
