Are Russian Women REALLY The Most Beautiful?

Another beauty: what attractive girls looked like in the USSR

Soviet times are still often remembered, although almost 30 years have passed since the collapse of the USSR. A lot then was completely different from what it is now: something is better, but something is worse. The standards of female beauty were also different. No one chased the parameters 90-60-90, did not often apply makeup in several layers, and did not wear revealing outfits. Let's remember what attractive girls looked like in the past.

Soviet fashion

It is obvious that clothes in the USSR were completely different and much less diverse than they are now. Jeans in the 1960s and 1970s could only be obtained from black marketeers, that is, speculators, at a price slightly less than the average monthly salary. The girls rarely wore trousers, and there was no talk of walking around the city in sportswear. Most often they wore dresses or skirts of different lengths, from mini to maxi. Sewed them in almost half of the cases on their own. Although in stores they, unlike jeans, were, but the styles were very diverse, as a rule, did not differ. A suitable size was also far from always available, so even purchased clothes often had to be customized.

The most common shoes for women were summer shoes and winter boots. There were no sneakers then, and sneakers were worn only in physical education lessons and during other sports. By the way, the mass sports uniform remained simple for a long time. The most commonly used harem pants and T-shirts. However, the olympics, first made for the USSR national team at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, gradually began to spread among the people and by the mid-60s came into use. Closer to the 1980 Moscow Olympics, the Olympic jacket was modernized, making it fully unfastened. Initially, the zipper barely reached the chest.

Mass sports existed, no diets

Sport itself was a mass phenomenon in the Soviet years. This was partly due to the presence of many free sections. In addition, ice skating, skiing and volleyball were very popular among women. Of course, girls played football less often than guys, but this sport also did not bypass the beautiful half of humanity.

At that time, almost no one was sitting at home, and there were much less options for spending time in the apartment thannow. The TV showed two or three channels, computers and mobile phones, of course, did not exist. There was no fast food either: the first McDonald's in the USSR opened in 1990. In general, there were much fewer opportunities to recover.

girls did not pursue thinness on purpose. There was no mass distribution of diets, fitness clubs, gymnastics for weight loss, Pilates and other modern activities. Manufacturers did not distribute pills for quick weight loss, various miracle herbs and other, to put it mildly, highly questionable products.

Women's appearance generally remained quite natural. Of the cosmetics, only lipstick, powder and mascara were widespread - most often solid, which had to be soaked with a damp brush. At the same time, there was no pressed powder in the compacts. The boxes for her were bought separately and were reusable. And the product itself went on sale in the form of a powder, which was applied to the face with cotton wool. Nail polish was also available. This was the end of the available means for directing the marafet. But it is unlikely that many in those years were very worried about this. It fully corresponded to the standards of beauty that existed then, and the girls looked very attractive.

100 kilograms of dreams

Not all overweight girls were worried about this occasion. For example, the famous actress Natalya Krachkovskaya, who played Madame Gritsatsuyeva in the first version of 12 chairs and Bunshi's wife in the film Ivan Vasilyevich changes her profession, has never been complex about her appearance. The woman enjoyed eating pies, borscht and other hearty dishes, and also recalled how one of the many fans said 100 kilograms of dreams about her!

Such a weight, of course, was not often met, but the chance to see a girl with similar dimensions was still higher than with skin and bones. Models that look like Barbie dolls came into fashion after the collapse of the Union, and in the Soviet years, no one aspired to such a figure. Looking at the photographs of those years, including those taken as part of the Spring-Summer 1966 women's clothing collection show, it is easy to see this. And this definitely does not spoil the appearance of the Sovietx girls.
