Atomic Protection Fashion

"how the housewife of the future might do her shopping during danger of atomic attack. The ensemble consists of a hood and goggles for protection against atomic flashes, a cloak and a gas mask to protect the lungs from atomic dust."

Because not even the threat of nuclear war is going to stop the weekly shop!

Those goggles are going to protect her forehead really well. Too bad they couldn't think of some way to shield her eyes from the initial blast.

What crap. It doesn't even cover the body properly. The pink Hazmat suits are so much better. I hope they make them in flattering shapes, with buttlifting technology, and in a wide array of colors. And please don't make them all with stupid patterns and no functioning pockets! We are sick of those!
