It got me to thinkin' I wonder how ladies in the Golden Era took care of their monthly visits. So I looked through some of my old catalogs, to see what types of products they used, and oh boy, am I GLAD for the invent of modern adhesive!
I dont think I could have dealt with all the clips and hooks and belts and seat guards, sheesh!
Here are some scans from some of my 30s and 40s catalogs highlighting some of the products that were for the gal on the go with her monthly.
From my Montgomery Wards '36 catalog.
Even Lane Bryant had us stout gals covered with properly sizes menstruation belts. Of course, Sears the top of the everyday department store gave all women variety and confidence in this department.
These are war time scans and with gals working to do their parts, manufactures wanted to make extra sure women had confidence during their monthlies. I mean, look at that picture, the one with the multiple drawings.
I had no idea you could dance during your period! Thank you, Kotex.
