Soviet women were not renowned for their elegance in the 1960s. This Soviet propaganda poster illustrates the type of badly-cut and unimaginative style that came to be associated with women from the Eastern Bloc. And the clothes shown here were specially selected to represent the best in Soviet clothing!

The caption reads: Long live the equal-rights-possessing women of the USSR!
