Vintage ad pressing the same message women get from pop culture: that artifice is the essence of sexiness and that natural beauty is never "enough." On the other hand, I'm wondering... I'm 54 now... and, well, you know...does that girdle come in my size?

You have to trap them, Gloria. Why would they want to spend any time with women who didn't make themselves into sex objects?

Ooooooohhhhh I want! I could use some help with my bustline.
