...and feel crummy!

(click) Head-shaking advert from 1963 for the A line Skimmer dress by Chubbette® Fashions of Middlesex, NJ. Dummy adults could also send away for "Pounds And Personality," an advice book for parents of a chubby girl written by "a team of well-known authorities." (image via)

Wow, this brings back memories. I was a fitting model as a child for Chubettes, got a break on the clothing before my mom put me in a Catholic school with uniforms. The factory was right down the road from where we lived in NJ. I remember the building, which is gone now. I used to loathe going there, can't remember much else.
