A Perfect Figure in 15 Minutes a Day

Debbie Drake exercise book cover

Debbie Drake’s Easy Way to a Perfect Figure and Glowing Health
Drake
1961

Debbie Drake was featured on our site back in 2011 with this exact book. The book’s condition was pretty sad and my scans weren’t very good. It was also missing a cover and when I found one with the cover intact, I thought it was time for a “do-over.” Debbie was a female version of Jack LaLanne .

The original post had some advice on how to exercise your hair and face. This time I included pictures from Debbie’s advice on how to get up from bed, increase your bust, and spot reduce your waist. You’re welcome.

Discovering a Lovelier You
Craig
1974

If you remember, we have featured a few of these books (because one book just wouldn’t be enough to fix what is wrong with women). Remember how to figure out your man? Or how about finding fulfillment as a woman through crafts?

Today’s selection is about making yourself as pretty as possible. Those crazy women libbers want you to be ugly. There is a bunch of self-esteem messages along with all the beauty tips. Throughout the book, the author advises  that those women libber types don’t know what they are talking about. Every woman wants to look her best!

Who doesn’t want to sit in front of the mirror doing facial exercises to achieve feminine fulfillment?

Linder and Flynn

Submitter: This book had a crazy layout and after 27 years, I think it out of date.  But enjoy the scans!

Holly: Great choice for a public library, but I have to agree that it’s a bit outdated. I’m not a fan of the format either. I don’t know where to look first! Also, I think the lady on the cover’s answer is just hold your face like she is to avoid sagging. Sort of DIY face lift?
