I have also noticed that it has been awhile since we last visited this corner of 70s styles. Well that is a situation that cries out for rectification, and I think that after perusing the following pics, you will agree!
Yea, I think you're getting the idea now. You're probably saying to yourself "Hey man, what so long for another post on this subject?" Good point, good point indeed. My only defense is that I was distracted by trying to get posts on all the other whacked out fashion styles of the 70s. Sometimes even us historian bloggers must remind ourselves of the basics, and what can be more basic than these body suits?
I respectfully disagree. This is not the "Total Look for every body". I mean, let's face it. You can't have just "any" body and pull off this look. But we can all admire those that can pull it off, and oh boy can these gals ever pull it off!
I admit it was tough to pick out the best pics for this post. After all they all rock, sooooo I included them all!
I said to myself "What the heck, let's be generous this week!" I hope all you readers agree! However, this one almost - and I mean almost - was left on the cutting room floor. The reason? It's Kathy's expression. She doesn't seem too pleased with something. I have no idea why. After all she looks great in yellow (or any color actually). Also, I have no idea what they mean by "body conscious fashions". Huh? You either got the bod for this or not! No reason to be conscious about it at all!
Finally I included one for all you Colleen fans (I know you're out there, so I try to keep everyone happy).
Here, we are told, we are supposed to be sold on the "versatile" body suits. After all they are "sleek and trim-fitting under skirts and low slung pants". Hmm, perhaps some of those refrigerator repairmen should consider wearing these. It would save a lot of embarrassment (sorry for putting that image in your minds. To correct go back and look at all these incredibly hot ladies again!).
(1) Please, dear readers, please help me identify the model next to Kathy in this pic! She started to appear in the big book catalogs in the mid-70s, and I have tons of pics of her. I'd love to do a post featuring her, but I would like her name first. I've tried, with zero luck, to find this info. Any ideas!
