  • From Marilyn Monroe to Kim Kardashian, the ideal body type for women has changed drastically throughout the centuries.
    This video is a reupload with a few minor adjustments.
    Trying to look a certain way, in order to conform to what society believes to be beautiful, is nothing new for the women of the world. Unfortunately for us females, there’s always been an epitome of beauty that women have attempted to mimic throughout the years. Trying to fit into this ideal has posed different types of challenges, some even life threatening, like constricting corsets in the Victorian Era or eating disorders in today’s society. These health consequences are only the beginning of the negative effects that trying to fit in causes on a woman’s body and mind. It’s shocking to see what use to be considered beautiful, but it’s even more shocking when you read about the unattainable goals women put in place for ourselves today. Body image issues have been an ongoing struggle for women over the years, and they’ve only become more and more prominent in recent times. If only it were still as simple as it was during the Italian Renaissance, when being skinny meant you were poor and being curvy meant you had enough money to properly nourish your body. Everyone’s opinion on what is beautiful differs from person to person; the ideals featured in this video are a broad look at what both men and women considered to be attractive in that day and age. From the androgynous look to the era of aerobics and skin-tight spandex, the standard of beauty is constantly evolving. But there is one thing remains the same, women will go to great lengths to look a certain way, the way they believe they’re suppose to. Every woman is beautiful, no matter your shape, and that’s something we should all keep in mind. This video in no way showcases how you’re suppose to look, it just shines a light on what the people believed to be the ideal woman throughout history. Hopefully in the decades to come, we’ll see that there is no specific ideal when it comes to how women should look. Inner beauty should be the only thing people focus on when thinking about the ideal woman. Until then, here’s a look at the crazy beliefs people possessed concerning what the perfect woman should look like in each time period. At least we don’t feel the need to wear airway-blocking corsets anymore. Let’s hope that’s an ideal that stays buried in the past.

    This made me cry about my uncurvy body and do butt workouts thank u society for being "enclusive" I'm not saying anything but I wish skinny came back but in a healthy way cuz my body makes me have anxiety whenever I go out with my friend she gets compliments on her curves I just stand there without a butt or chest and once got told to eat a burger lets face it society is just as toxic as it used to be just the tables turned

    I'm 50 & I was raised in a house where curves were good. I've always preferred to have curves in the right places. I've never thought "skinny" equals beauty.

    Fr now you have to have a big back, chest a tiny waist, plum lips, flat stomach but still curvy and just good looks. But for boys they just need good looks and a pepe. They have it easy.

    I feel as if there was a movement towards curvy bodies on the one hand, but on the other hand the media are full of super skinny, athletic models and only fitting into size XS or S is beautiful and everything over this size is plus size. Sorry for not beeing 10 pounds underweight.
