Pin-ups or as they also referred to as cheesecake photos were a common thing back in 19th century America. Pin-up girls have been mainly associated with tall, thin models shaping beauty standards for most women or Marilyn Monroe who even 60 years after her death still remains the sexiest pin-up model with her iconic images.
Among these hottest models, there was one not like any of the others, the creation of artist Duane Bryers, Hilda. The illustration of Hilda was very popular during the 1930s-1980s and appeared in nearly every calendar.
The funny and super curvy Hilda has paved her road towards superstardom with her plump body and clumsy style that surely formed whole new standards for American beauty. Hilda has proven that you can look like anything you want and no matter how much you weigh you still can be sexy as hell.
Check out the photos to celebrate the long-forgotten pin-up model and the silly and vibrant illustrations of her by Duane Bryers. This girl surely knows how to embrace her curves and teaches other women to do the same.
