women’s ideal body types through history

Source article

I’ve seen several different timeline representations for “ideal” female beauty through the ages the past several months, though I can’t say that I’ve seen much consistency between them. And I’m not sure how I feel about them, either. On the one hand, there’s something to be said for pointing out that our one dimensional definition of beauty isn’t all encompassing and actually hasn’t been around that long. It’s definitely something to take into consideration from a health and body image perspective. But on the other, we don’t see matching videos for men. Should we take this as an indication that society’s definition of “ideal” male beauty hasn’t changed much? Or is it just that body type isn’t something of significance where guys are concerned?
