Of course, the product in question fails to explain how expanding this girl’s hip will produce the ‘eye-catching hourglass figure’ in a girl who is equally slender of bust. Alas! As a Big Girl with a Teeny Bustline, I can guarantee you that wide hips alone do not an hourglass figure make. I can also guarantee from personal experience that a great relationship does not spring from or evaporate based on any particular physical attribute. Still, it’s kind of nice to see an ad – even one so hokey and so far in the past – that supports the idea that there are times when Bigger is Better.
Of course, it doesn’t really inspire much confidence in the quality of the product that they hired Criswell to hawk it, too.
