This Forgotten Plus-Sized Pin-Up Is Awooga: Hummina, Hummina


This is Hilda, the sexy chubster pin-up girl who is about to be plastered all over your apartment.

According to Messy Nessy Chic, Hilda is the creation of illustrator Duane Bryers. The redheaded beauty was created in the 1950s, but didn’t achieve moderate popularity until the 60s.

“She’s a creation out of my head. I had various models over the years, but some of my best Hilda paintings I’ve ever done were done without a model,” Duane told the online pin-up gallery Toil.

Related: Just a few months ago, a friend gave me a Hilda in the bath print, and I look at her every day as I get ready to shower. Since seeing body diversity makes us more comfortable with diverse bodies, she’s not a bad image to spend some quality time with before I’m naked. Plus: AWOOGA!
