1952 I Dreamed I Won the Election

1952 Maidenform Bra election day ad.

I stay away from the subject of politics as much a possible, but I couldn’t resist posting this Maidenform ad from Today’s Woman magazine – November 1952.  The bra company ran a series of “I dreamed” ads in mid-century magazines where a topless model showed off her Maidenform bra while doing an assortment of extraordinary things. Here, the caption is, “I dreamed I won the election in my Maidenform Bra”.  64 years later, this dream may be a reality.  Perhaps she should have been wearing a pantsuit.
