I dreamed...

One of the best advertising campaigns ever devised which ran from about 1952 to 1969 was the Maidenform bra campaign, some of the 'dreams' were ordinary such as 'going shopping' or 'played chess' but others from the early 60s such as 'the leaves fell for me' were pure genius. Here is just a small selection.
