A 23 inch waist when UN-corseted was one of this dazzling actress's many gifts as the Brit import Hollywood studio era star of the 50's and 60's.
She is still quite hourglassy to this day.

Raquel Welch is considered by many film historians and pin up aficionados to have thee most perfect physique in entertainment history. I would have to agree or at least that it is a photo-finish with Lynda Carter. One of the most athletic and simultaneously hourglassy bodies in Hollywood history. Raquel Welch is extremely intelligent, talented and erudite as well.

"How to get an Hourglass Figure"
(the ORIGINAL most widely googled article now expanded only on Super Amanda blogger)
superamanda.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-to-get-hourglass-figure-indepth.html


The "measurements" issued by PR people are almost always fake which is why few are included here. The definition of what an hourglass figure is has changed over the years so to be clear, this list focuses on the classic hourglass shape of the late 1940s and early 1950s. It starts with women from that era to women who today still bring to mind this same very figure. Whether they were hourglasses, athletic, boyish, petite, heavy or very buxom, all women of the 40s and 50s had very defined waists. One need only glance at any old photo of the public pools or beaches. Clothing was better constructed and overall people were smaller than today. So if you do not see your favourite star on here it is not because the author does not think they are curvy or tiny waisted, this is simply my own interpretation of the classic Hourglass figure. This list should not be seen as a guide to "what the best body is" or how you should look. These are strictly my own opinions and I can't stress enough how I think ALL female body types are wonderful.

I have an almost 5'10 hourglass figure of myself, I wrote one of the most widely Googled articles on the HGF and I''m at the end on this mostly chronological list. I've found far too much misrepresentation of what an hourglass figure is by the media, fashion magazines, many PR agencies and even the celebs and models themselves. Furthermore, most fashion writers or designers who write about or design clothing for an hourglass figure don't have one of their own. This is evident in how little decent reproduction vintage clothing exists despite a boom in recent years unless bespoke. Most of what I've seen is cut incorrectly through the torso with the waist usually either too high, too wide or too low. Often in structured pieces there is also not enough delineation and/or length between the bust, ribcage and waist. The natural, nipped in waist in fashions for all body types is now mostly gone.

This list is comprised of women who look literally like an hourglass and do not need heavy corsets and photo shop to create this natural effect. Virtually all these photos show the form unencumbered by computer retouching and photo shop. Some subtle lighting was used in many old school photographs of hourglass bombshells but as you can see, unlike almost all magazine/paparazzi/swimsuit photo today, the photographer did not create what is not there and NOTHING was resized. These HG figures range in height, weight, frame and proportion; some are athletic dancers or soft and very, very busty and voluptuous. Some are more petite, small busted and fine boned, some shorter and stockier while others are tall and thin or tall and fuller figured or/and Amazonian while other women on the list have literally PERFECTLY symmetrical figures.

The often discussed subject of how many of these woman would "not be hired today in a skinny hard body obsessed media" is simply false; the media could only dream of women like the first portion of the list reappearing and indeed many are constantly imitated by Madison Ave in bad photo shoots by cultural illiterates like Steven Meisel.

Finally, many feel an hourglass figure is only really possible with a corset-not true at all. Natural hourglass figures simply do not gain or store much weight in the upper torso or waist, we carry it in either the hips, legs, shoulders and/or arms. Our weight and breast size can fluctuate due to child birth, age etc but we nearly always have hips and busts that are about 9 to 12 inches or so than our waist when measured at the fullest point of both the bust and the hips. Cup and breast size can vary. The hourglass figure is associated with higher fertility rates for obvious reasons but it is a trickier shape to get back after childbirth for some.
