Its Society Who’s Ugly

I saw this video several weeks back and found myself wishing I lived in a different time. If I was living in perhaps the Italian Renaissance where ample bosom, rounded stomach, full hips and fair skin were the order of the day.

Even Victorian England where plump was desirable along with a full figure, and a corset cinched waist.

image16The Golden Age of Hollywood, thanks to Marilyn Monroe, was all about curvy women with an hourglass figure.

Every era has its ideal figure for women, some women were born matching that ideal….some cinch, snip, paint and starve their way to ideal. I feel like today we are at the cusp of a new era; one of acceptance and beauty recognition in all types of bodies, but it is a slow process and only time will tell.
