A Reflection of Backstage (1959)

From Kamera Backstage (1959) comes a shot spread across two pages (P32 & P33) of Pamela Green, Mary Deighan and Madeleine Mado (Maria Hale). A great shot of all 3, with Pam being seen in the reflection of the mirror as she chats to Mary wearing some great little nipple pasties! Madeleine stares off into the distance, but no nipple pasties on her, just a small little princess crown instead 🙂

Lydia Barton & The Leopard Skin Nipple Pasties!

You learn something new every day, who knew these small round caps covering the nipple and areola were called nipple pasties! Here is Lydia Burton wearing a set of pasties and matching choker and leopard skin panties from Kamera Special No.1 (1957) by Harrison Marks.

Pasties emerged in burlesque and striptease from the 1920s as a way to avoid breaking the law by performing topless or nude and came to be regarded by some as more aesthetic and erotic than showing the actual nipples. Me I prefer to see a nice pair of nipples, but add some tassels and I can see the appeal!
