1940 Miss America Winner

SOURCE

This 1940 Miss America winner has long shapely legs and she’s very tall, but you can also see that fitness wasn’t a huge consideration when it came to pageant winners in the 1940s. This woman looks more like what a normal American woman should look like, and it’s interesting that pageant winners in those days were seemingly a closer approximation of what was considered a proper female figure in those days than the huge disparity that exists today.
