I've found the best stuff like this just from scouring antique malls and eBay for old magazines.  I've gotten some great old Maidenform ads and lots of other stuff too.

I just sent an old Ladies Home Journal to someone in the Vintage Swap that had about 4 Maidenform ads.  Old magazines are the way to go.  I may have access to bunches of old magazines sometime in the near future.  We'll see.

Another good site for retro/vintage ads is:

www.tack-o-rama.com

They have some great "vintage" looking fonts too, so check them out.

A million thanks for posting the tack-o-rama website. It is beautifully done and contains so many ads I've never seen posted. This stuff is right up my alley!
