1940s Fashion Dos and Donts for the Plump Girl in PDF
A lovely find from 1943. This 50 page booklet (covers included) gives in-depth and detailed tips on how the Plump gal should and should not dress. It covers everything from dresses to shoes, coats, hats, night wear, bathing suits and accessories.
This PDF is scanned and presented with little retouching so you feel as though you are looking at the original booklet.
It's a great book.
One thing I like about it is the book references different sizes of plump gals.
The PDF is 3.8MBs.
