Women’s Ideal Body Types Throughout History

There is so much pressure to live up to societies’ ideals of physical perfection. We are constantly bombarded with images of ideal “beauty” that are unrealistic for most women to achieve… Today we’re expected to be skinny, but have a big butt and big breasts which has resulted in an increased number of women under the age of 30 turning to plastic surgery. This video shows just how fleeting society’s definition of beauty is. For this reason, Shawn Johnson is challenging you to look beyond society’s standards and define beauty for yourselves with The Body Department’s #BodyBeautiful Challenge. Take the challenge and share what makes you beautiful!
