c.1930s: “Breast washer” Chris September 14, 2012 1930-1939, Fashion & beauty 12 CommentsFavourited 1271 times Add to favourites 12 Responses Amy September 14, 2012 All I can think is “OW!” Couldn’t a wash cloth and soap do the same job and with less “OW!”? Reply John September 14, 2012 Looks strangely shiny and unreal, almost like a drawing. Early version of Photoshop? Reply Joanne September 14, 2012 I agree with Amy. Wonder if it isn’t a supposed breast “enhancer”. And she looks like she is enjoying it. Reply Silvie Fisch September 14, 2012 I bet this served one or two other purposes as well : ) Reply Joanne September 14, 2012 I also agree with John. It looks like a mechanical drawing applied to the photo. And I’m not so sure she is enjoying it. On second look she appears to have her teeth clenched. Reply Linda Stratmann September 14, 2012 This is not a washer but a firmer. I remember them (never used one!) the idea was that cold water would tone and firm the bosom. Reply Dave September 14, 2012 A task more easily accomplished by hand. Reply Linda Stratmann September 14, 2012 It was called Aqua-Maid! Reply michael craycraft September 14, 2012 The potential for ‘demonstration’ sets the mind awhirl. This must be an ad to attract salesmen for perhaps a more realistic line of products. m Reply jonaD September 20, 2012 I always tell people, “Women NEED to keep their breasts CLEAN!”. My suggestion is, however many hundreds of horsepower it took to run the Hydrochloric Acid through this… double it! Reply GeeVee October 4, 2012 This had to be designed by a man.
