See How Much the “Perfect” Female Body Has Changed in 100 Years

1960s

Aaaaand with the swinging 60s we head straight back to the thin , svelte figure. Which kinda is sensible seeing because the main fashion staple at the time was mini skirts and platform boots.Along with the $-=exual revolution, the 1960s brought with it a replacement beauty ideal — slender and long-legged. High-fashion model Twiggy Lawson became famous for her small frame and “androgynous” look — a nod to the flapper ideal.

Twiggy has spoken out against the thinness ideal while recognizing her own role in perpetuating it.

“I was a really , very skinny model within the 60s, but naturally… that’s what I seemed like ,” She told The Huffington Post in 2010. “I ate. I always said I ate, and that i seemed like my dad who was very skinny, so i feel that’s genetic… if you’re 17 years old and you’re 5-foot-11, the probabilities are you’re getting to be thin.”
