Everyone sees photos from the past and realizes how much fashion changes throughout the years. However, female body types and shapes do as well. What is attractive now might not have been the same in the past. Generally, the shifts are quite subtle, but there can be glaring differences at times.
Though it probably won’t help us live better lives, it can still be interesting to see the differences. They often reflect how the world views a woman and determines who becomes a celebrity since looks are a huge part of that. Let’s see the changes back-to-back right now!
1910s – Gibson Girl
It was more expensive to publish photographs in the 1910s, so most magazine companies hired illustrators to draw products. Charles Dana Gibson was probably the most famous at the time because he liked to show women wearing corsets with hourglass figures.
Camille Clifford was a famous model and actress and was the top Gibson Girl of the time. She had a tiny 18-inch waist, which could only happen because of the tight corset under her long gown. Everyone wanted to be like her!
