Duane Bryers has created Hilda Illustrations to depict the various phases of the plus size pin up girl. Once you see the pictures of the illustrations, you will relate Hilda to the Marilyn Monroe in the first place. Duane Bryers has lead to excellent depiction of the pin up girl with his illustration.

You must have heard ‘you are too fat. Lose some weight’. Our healthy pals have to face this kind of remark every day. In the world of size zero, we forgot to appreciate the plus size beauties who were comfortable in their own skin instead of shedding kilos.

But there are women who were icon and their curvy figure pretty much defined the "pin-up" style. But sometimes people forget about the other pin-up girls that are really worth remembering - Hilda, for example.

Created by illustrator Duane Bryers (1911-2012), Hilda was a plus-size redhead model who was definitely not shy about her plump body. Not only was she one of the only plus-size pin-up girls of her time, but she was also a hilariously clumsy girl that was fun to look at. Hilda graced America's calendars from around the 1950s to the 1980s and to celebrate that, we share some of Duane Bryers' silly illustrations of her below.

So, hang out with Hilda and appreciate the curves for a moment.

Being fat and being curvy are two different things. While being fat, you feel inactive and your body becomes immune to lot more diseases. but, when you are curvy you feel healthy, fresh and keep glowing all the time as Hilda did in her pictures.

Being curvy was never out of style. A man from different countries like Africa gives more preference to plus size women than the lean one. Then, why to care about size when there is a man to love you all by his heart.

There should be absolutely no shame in having a curvy figure. That's close to most of the real women all across the world. How many of you agree with this?

Duane Bryers was an artist and a dreamer who never limited beauty by its size. All the pictures of Hilda are beautiful, colorful and happy. She doesn't let her plus-size hinder her beauty and happiness as we do.
