1930s guide on how to undress for your hubby

New York, July 19 : A rulebook that was published decades ago, advised women on how to undress for their husbands.

The baffling rulebook published by LIFE Magazine told women to roll their panty-hose down while sitting, advising them not to bunch, and telling them to keep their legs tightly crossed, the New York Daily News reported.

The book also tells women not to pull their dress over their head, and advises them to always unzip and shimmy out, then hang it up.

The meticulous, step-by-step guide for women said that women shouldn't dare to work on two sides at once.

According to the article, published Feb. 17, 1937, the rules became the foundation of the Allen Gilbert School of Undressing, a New York City business, whose founder put up shows at topnotch burlesque houses like Manhattan's Apollo and Philadelphia's Schubert.

Gilbert had explained that how improper undressing was contributing to divorce rates upping at the time.

His 30-dollar-course, taught by burlesque dancer Connie Fonzlau, featured six lessons.
