After doing some more in-depth research on beauty, the two of us came across information that shocked us. We had no idea just how flakey the culture’s standards for beauty truly are.
Get this. Over the past 100 years, the ideal body for a woman has changed drastically at least ten times.
1910: The Gibson Girl
1920: The Flapper
1930: May West
1940: Rita Hayworth
1950: Marilyn Monroe
1970: Farrah Fawcett
1980: Jane Fonda
1990: Kate Moss
2000: The Victoria’s Secret Model
When the two of us look over that list and see the drastic changes, we can’t help but get a little upset. Instead of women embracing their unique God-given shapes, sizes, and features, we have a long history of picking a mold and try to conform.
Instead of trying to conform our bodies to the “perfect woman,” let’s instead embrace our God-given differences.
