The idea of the “perfect body shape” in the 20th and 21st centuries has shifted almost as often as fashion trends. In those cases, the contrasts between decades are very shocking. It’s like two men who love to mansplain (the worst kind), are sitting in a conference room posting Facebook statuses about what’s acceptable and what’s not. But jokes aside, in reality, it’s not necessarily men who impose these rules on us.
Women should have curves, no wait!
Maybe a little.
Okay, no, just go with stick figures.
Wait, I changed my mind.
And in all of these trends, we seem to have forgotten about the actual, most important “should”.
Women should do whatever the hell they want and look however the hell they want. Because the only person you should listen to about your own body is you.
The trend in your mirror is you. Because, once you see this article and see how drastically the trend imposed by others changes, you’ll see that it’s no use chasing it.
