1930s Miss America Contestant


This 1930s Miss America contestant shows you how different the body image was in that era, as this woman has a fuller figure that what would be appealing to judges in the modern era. For example, her legs are not toned or muscular in any way, though they’re not fat, and her stomach has no real definition, despite being flat. Note also that her bosom isn’t as full as what is more acceptable today due to the higher sense of propriety in those days.
