Mercredi: The Art of Beauty

Let's fast forward to flash back today with this 1950s magazine ad for lady's underwear. That's right, girls: "One record with 6 briefs. Choose record by Eddie Fisher, Elvis Presley or Perry Como." Looking back on it the choice is easy; you can't beat Elvis plus six panties for $3.97!

Thanks, as always, to the wonderful Mid-Century tumblr for this.

Yep, the choice is pretty obvious there, Pauline. You're probably going to need all six pairs with Elvis... With the others, not so much.

Yes! I think so. Perry Como might have been a good choice for insomniac ladies, though...
