Vintage Ads 1950s – No Wonder Women Burned Their Bras

I was looking at design styles of vintage ads when I came across these gems.

It’s been said that advertising is a window into a society’s culture. If these ads are an indication of North American culture in the 1950s, then it is no wonder that Women’s Lib took hold in the 60s and 70s, and that bra burning became a favourite past time of feminists. Not to mention the outrageous uses for various products!
