3000 Years Of Women’s Ideal Body Types In A 3 Minute Video

It can be hard for us to imagine how much the notion of the ideal feminine body has changed throughout human history, which is why this 3-minute video by Buzzfeed is so fascinating. It shows how womanly body ideals have looked and evolved over the past 3,000 years.

In the video, modern models of diverse shapes and sizes show off their bodies to determine the ideal figures of ages and decades past, and all are tightly covered with identical blank white bathing suits.

Women have faced exacting beauty standards for ages, and many have had to struggle to meet them. The body images portrayed range from Ancient Egypt to the Golden Age of Hollywood to the Heroin Chic of the sweet 90s. What do you think the next body-image fad will be?

It all just goes to show that there’s no one right way to interpret feminine beauty and ideas of the ideal body. Which historical period do you think “got it right?”
