Plus size Pin up girl Hilda

Bloggers have gone nuts this year with the re-introducing of plus size pin up girl Hilda into the great line of classic illustrated pin up girls. Who is she?

Sexy comes at any size, and this hidden illustration from day’s passed is like a hidden gem among the pin up world.

This plus size pin up girl Hilda is exactly what the doctor ordered for this decade.

Hilda highlights a nice round bum, killer breasts, and a fabulous cinched waist. That is, cinches without losing her plus-size figure. This age-old plus size pin up illustration is bursting with body confidence. Hilda shows off her curves by skipping through the fall leaves naked taking an alluring outdoor shower after a hard days work, knitting by the fire, boating, and doing all sorts of other semi-ridiculous yet casually sexy activities posed by the average pin up girl.

What makes Hilda so inspirational? Not only is this ginger absolutely gorgeous with her bobbed haircut and I Love Lucy type face, she does something else: Hilda shows off a real body type in a sexy light. Real. She doesn’t have ridiculous or unreachable proportions. She doesn’t have twigs for thighs, or a rock hard stomach. Instead she’s portrayed as any real woman. Proportional curves, real breasts, real weight, and a charmingly flirtatious personality.

So let’s all take a moment and gush over plus size pin up girl Hilda in all her fabulousness.

Cheap rockabilly clothes + Why vintage clothing is so expensive

Looking for cheap rockabilly clothes online, or maybe you’re wondering why rockabilly vintage clothes are so expensive. We’ve got the answer to both!

Rockabilly style is one of the most unique, classy, fun, and trendy ways to live. Many people say rockabilly isn’t about the clothes, the music, or the tattoos, it’s about a lifestyle. Unfortunately, that lifestyle can get pretty expensive! In fact, one of the top reasons people are put off exploring the rockabilly culture is because it’s so damn expensive.

It seems like in the majority of online shops and local retro clothing / vintage stores, scoring a rockabilly dress for under $100 is near impossible – especially for those sporting plus size rockabilly clothes!

So what’s the deal? Why are rockabilly clothes so expensive? For one, vintage inspired clothes use high-quality fabrics. Another reason is because rockabilly styles are specially made for a niche group. This means they aren’t in mainstream demand, therefore those selling them need to make more of a profit than commercial stores. Bottom line, these clothes are made to last. You’ll never find quality items like this at Forever21, but that quality comes with a price. But, does it have to?

At Punkabilly Clothing, we believe cheap rockabilly clothes should be available for everyone! Our styles are affordable and attractive, and never sacrifice using high-quality materials. Want affordable rockabilly clothes? We’re looking at cheap rockabilly clothes that don’t ever hit the $50.00 mark!
