This is Lillian Russell
She was the most admired woman in the 1800's at nearly 200 lbs.
In 1950 this was the desired body....
and it has gotten smaller and smaller.
Who makes these decisions for us? Why are we pressured to look a certain way even to the point of injury like the women in Japan who allowed their feet to be broken so they would fit into the tiniest shoes
Or those Victorian days of old where the tiniest waist was the demand
Listen if you think getting your ears pierced hurt try one of these!
Fortunately for me, I didn't do anything that is permanent to follow the fashion trend with the exception of pierced ears and today, I could vie with the fifty's if it leaned a little more toward Lillian Russell...because curved are the best!
