1950s GIRLIE PIX: Cheesecake Busty Babes Nude



Sexy 1950s babes posed in and out of lingerie: bras, panties, garter belts and stockings. From a recent purchase, 4 x 5" glossy photos, sold in sets via ads in girlie magazines and adult bookstores. A selection of demurely posed nudes, "covering up" their pubes, the results often more provocative then the hirsute imagery that followed in the 1960s.
