Introducing, 1960s Slimming Beds


11th Oct, 2012

So it’s not yet 11am here in Paris and I’m pretty much wasted on some brandy tea that I made myself earlier to soothe a sore throat. I may have over-poured with the brandy (and may have made do with whisky instead of actual brandy). Soothing has now worn off, alcohol has not. So anyhoo, these groovy ‘slimming beds’ from the late 60s seem like a great idea to me right now! Check ’em out…!

And in case you’re wondering what a modern day slimming bed might look like today, I’ve found one for your convenience. It’s called the Ali Baba Deluxe Royal Magic Light Slimming Spa Capsule…  sounds like money well-spent!
