How to Be Slim in 1930s Style

Marilyn Monroe
I adore Marilyn Monroe. She is phenomenally beautiful. No, in fact I love old Hollywood glamour girl to be exact. Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, Heidi Lamar, Greta Garbo. I didn't live back then but I love the style and class and the overall sentiment of the era!  The classic gorgeous, sleek waves never goes out of style and old Hollywood glam makeup never die. These original list of sexiest celebs always stayed in camera-ready shape, and we want to know their secrets.  

Then I found this vintage video on YouTube. Very classic.

Easy steps to slim - the1930s style

The1940s style to fight the bulge

...and er what? The slimming beds?

  1. OMG these are hilarious! Times will never change. People will forever try to make a fast dollar off weight loss!

  2. hahahha I do NOT think I would try that!!!!!!!! Wow too funny!

  3. In the 1939 movie The Women there is a great scene of the women working out and some of it looks like the pictures you posted.

  4. The slimming bed is kind of like an early Ab Roller!

    I like their heeled workout shoes. I wouldn't wear them to work out, though! The second video with the weird, touchy feeling machines was just disturbing...

  5. Those are so funny! I too, love the workout clothes! LOL.

  6. Those videos are hilarious! I would've never thought about coming across them.

    I would NOT try those rolling things. They don't look like they would work or that they are meant for mass use - maybe just already thin gals.

    New follower from Nanny to Mommy Thumping Thursdays! Hopefully you'll stop by and join my Fitness Fridays!

  7. The one from the 40s cracks me up the most! Really? Actually the one from the 30s is most realistic. It's Pilates/Dance. Perhaps a little slower than we do it now.

    Happy Saturday Sharefest! Love the videos!

  8. LOL! Thank you so much for sharing this. You just never know what goes into beauty routines. It's all an elaborate illusions and I LOVE it!

    Stopping by from SITS!


  9. This post is awesome. I would like to order that bed. Who doesn't want to work out while laying down, albeit in a very awkward and uncomfortable position.

    FYI: I'm visiting from the Sits Sharefest!

  10. Hahah oh wow, some of these things... wow!

    I'm hopping over from the SITS Sharefest! :)
    Have a great weekend!

  11. Hahahaha! How funny! The quest for skinny never changes.

  12. SO funny! Stopping by from Aloha Friday! Have a great week! :)

  13. I think this is not funny back then, but the routine turns ridiculously funny these days. :D I agree with you Alice. The one from the 30s is most realistic one here. I am glad you all stopped by. Thank you!
