Poorly named products FTW: Minikins! Slipmates! SUSPANTS!  

Blue Swan, 1950

What's with the scary fingers, the body double and the sliced-down-the-middle font?? Is this a horror movie? No, it's a blouse, it's a slip, it's a who cares.  But it comes in Dramatic Red, so points for that.

Meet Toothpick Tillie ("toothpickian"), Modelform Millie ("splendiferous"), and Buxom Billie (overly endowed) :D 

In SUSPANTS (same B-Movie font)!

Why doesn't Toothpick Tillie get little arm thingies/wings? :(

Clearly she's light enough to fly without help!

I don't understand what the minikins actually are....

I think they're the closest thing there to what most women wear most of the time today. Briefish underwear. But in rayon.

My first thought was that they were mini-pads for when your "Aunt Flo" visits.

why does 'poorly named products' sound like a good contest theme?

I love how in the Suspants ad it says to wear them 'without garters on stockingless occasions'! Stockingless occasions... how risque! XD

"You can hurdle the girdle and look svelte without garter belt when you wear Suspants, the wonder undie."


What the hell were they smoking to come up with that ad copy?
Man Writing Slashwrite_light on March 30th, 2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
Or when they thought a circus sideshow was a good motif?

I have a strange suspicion the gender that would wear these was unrelated to the gender that wrote the copy.

That, or I've been watching too much Mad Men.
