Believe it or not, there was a time when skinny was out and curvy was in. It was a curvylicious figure that women coveted up until a few decades ago and companies like Wate-On sold products that promised to help them achieve just that. Here a few of their ads.
While it is refreshing to see a different body type that doesn’t include bones sticking out being portrayed as attractive, it is also sad to realise that women were never satisfied with their bodies. Worse, there have always been people willing and ready to capitalize on their insecurities to make a quick buck.
When will we finally learn to love and accept our bodies the way they are?
