April 1955 issue of Tops, with cover star Betty Brosmer. We’d never heard of this lovely woman before, but we were struck by this image so we looked her up. Turns out she was famous for having the perfect figure, which in her case was 38-18-35. That doesn’t sound perfect to us, so much as structurally unsound, but it is attention-getting. You can see in the two asstastic shots below that her business class rivals anything Kim Kardashian has to offer. Brosmer went on to marry fitness guru Joe Weider, become a fitness guru herself, and co-found Shape magazine, which became a wild success partly by helping women to reduce the size of their asses. Fate is not without a sense of irony.
