Sexy Illustrations Of Hilda: The Plus-Size Cover Girl From The 1950s
When the words “pin-up girl” are stated, the first thing that enters your mind is more than likely Marilyn Monroe. The woman was an icon and her curved figure basically specified the “pin-up” design. But sometimes individuals forget about the other pin-up girls that are truly worth remembering – Hilda, for example.
Developed by illustrator Duane Bryers (1911-2012), Hilda was a plus-size redhead model who was absolutely not shy about her plump body. Not only was she one of the only plus-size pin-up girls of her time, but she was likewise a hilariously clumsy girl that was fun to look at. Hilda graced America’s calendars from around the 1950s to the 1980s and to celebrate that, we share some of Duane Bryers’ ridiculous illustrations of her listed below.
