This week, we honor classic beauty, Betty Brosmer, as our Thursday Throwback

Known for her super bodacious bod, this beautiful fitness guru was a super popular pin-up girl, author, and then went on to become the co-founder of Shape Magazine. Talk about beauty and brains!

With her unmistakable good looks, Betty began her career by winning dozens and dozens of beauty pageants. She would soon go on to be the crowned winner of fifty beauty queen competitions. This impressive stat makes it easy to understand why Brosmer was the highest paid pin-up girl of the 1950's.
