10 Pin Up Girls You Totally Need to See

The pin-up style appeared in the 30s of the last century in America, and at first, it was considered only an advertising style for magazine illustrations and graphics, having nothing in common with real life. Cheerful flirtatious girls in the light, fluttering dresses, lush skirts, bathing suits smiled from the covers of popular magazines, posters, postcards. The idea of beauty from the cover had an incredible success.

Pictures depicting beauties were cut from magazines and newspapers and were pinned to the wall or to furniture, this gave the name to the style. Often pictures in the style of Pin-Up depicted a half-naked girl or girl, caught in a piquant situation, and her expression was simultaneously flirtatious and surprised.

The first serious art photos of pin-up appeared in the USA in the 1930s, immediately after the famous exchange crisis, when in the air of big cities the farewell cries of bankers rang, which were thrown out of their offices. It was at this time that someone from the editorial board of the popular magazine Life decided to decorate the cover of the next issue of the magazine with an image of an elegantly curved girl with a clear hint of sexuality.

Do not think that the first pin-up, even in America, was quite bare. It did not come immediately. In those days, America would not tolerate open debauchery, but soft hints of gender differences were not prohibited. Girls in fluttering dresses with bare legs almost to the middle of the thighs, laughing crafty beauties, allowing the dress to bare the shoulders and slip almost to the breast - conservative American culture could not give the permission for something more frank.
