Have you seen this video that shows how beauty standards for women have changed over time?  



What do you think?  Based on these standards, is there a time period you wish you'd lived in?

    1. Me neither, but I think I'd fit nicely in the Renaissance or Victorian England :-)

  4. Interesting! I've never had the ideal body type. I work with some very attractive girls, which can be awkward when everyone goes out their way to compliment them and there's no one to tell me I'm pretty. lol

    1. I think you're selling yourself short. Pretty is as pretty does.

  5. Well, I've always liked the Victorian era. Now there's one more good reason to do so!! It's either that or the Italian Renaissance for me.
