A flimsy wisp of gossamer Sheltering shapes we hold so dear Behold the truth and shed no tear
These are the facts ’neath the Brassiere…
These ridiculous and sexist photos were taken from a 1940s comic book that labeled different shapes and sizes of women’s breasts. They gave hilarious and offensive names to the breasts according to their shapes and sizes such as Heavy Artillery, Spaniel Ears, full moon, bee stings, and many more. Also taking aim at various female types.
Like it or abhor it, this is a genuine relic of mid-20th century burlesque-like culture, and we suspect in fact that this might have been a souvenir from a sleazy theater showcasing ecdysiastic cheesecake and ribald comedians.
