Actress Carol Lynley and a Modess puberty & menstruation booklet

Like Susan Dey, the American actress Carol Lynley, who made dozens of films from the 1960s to the present day (among others, Under the Yum-Yum Tree, The Cardinal and The Pleasure Seekers), made her menstrual hygiene ad as a teenage model, and two years later appeared on the cover of Life magazine; she was the top junior mannequin in New York, having started as a pre-teen. She modeled clothing in the Sears, Roebuck catalogs of the time.

Below this we see, incredibly, a Carol Lynley paper doll, appearing in 1960, when she was 18. And, a little later, she posed nude for Playboy magazine (bottom of page).

The ad is for the Modess booklet "How shall I tell my daughter" from the September 1955, when she was 13.

See probably another ad with her here, for Tampax.

Many pictures, long download!



Carol Lynley appeared on the cover and was also the subject of a biography within as a 17-year-old, in January 1959.


1960: a doll at 18. See also Susan Dey and Cheryl Tiegs.

She was 23 when this picture crossed the fold, but not the centerfold, of the March 1965 Playboy, after Lynley had divorced, had a child, and had long since given up "regular" modeling for the movies.
