How wives should undress in front of their husbands (1937)

This photoshoot from 1937 shows the contrast in the ‘undressing’ style of former Burlesque stripper, June St. Clair, as compared to a ‘typical wife’, who doesn’t disrobe with quite the same, erm, allure. The photos were by Peter Stackpole and done for the Allen Gilbert School of Undressing. [via How to be a Retronaut]
