Love Your Body

I recently stumbled across this thought-provoking article by Greatist.com, about how much the perfect female body has changed over the past 100 years. It’s shocking and definitely shows that body ideals are trends which change generation after generation and even year after year. What’s considered a divine silhouette today, may not be what the media deems attractive come 2016. Moral of the story? Love your body, and enhance its features. We will never live up to the constantly changing ideals portrayed in magazines and on television. Check out these photos posted on the site:
