Video Of The Ideal Women's Body Throughout History Teaches An Important Lesson About Beauty

Beauty standards are constantly changing, especially for women. While this may sound like bad news, it's actually immensely freeing to realise it's pointless to make your body fit in with a trend.

Your body is your body - it doesn't quite know it's meant to be a fashion statement.

Not that that's stopped people from trying to make it one.

The above video shows how the "ideal" female figure over 3,000 years has changed, from the curvaceous ladies of the Renaissance to the androgynous models of the 1990s.

Clearly these women are all smokin', proving you don't have to conform to society's current ideals to be attractive.

Beauty comes is all shapes and sizes, it always has and it always will.
