Dr. Leonard’s

Today I was reading about how compression socks, which are among the world’s least attractive garments, have become fashionable. This is in keeping with normcore, the trend where models have been snapped wearing Mom jeans and polartec hoodies from Sears. All of this put me in mind of the Dr. Leonard’s catalogue. As my Mother got older, she was both fascinated and horrified by this catalogue, which features all sorts of genuinely helpful products involving incontinence, limited mobility and hearing loss. Dr. Leonard’s also includes loungewear and some serious sandals. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find, including, in the final image, something called Dr. Laura Berman’s Charlotte Massager. Which has made me wonder: who, or what, is Charlotte?
