One only needs to look at an era’s pop culture to see how the ideal female body changes over time. Some eras prefer fuller, curvier women, while others have idealized thinner, more “boyish” figures.
In a new controversial video, BuzzFeed took a look at the “perfect” body of our time and years past, starting with ancient Greece going all the way through the roaring 20s and later the waifish-thin supermodel era to today’s “post-modern” beauty.
Many argue that the full-figured woman depicted for the Golden Age of Hollywood (1930s-1950s) is not a true representation, feeling that she is too curvaceous. Others applaud this woman’s form as well as the video’s reminder that women of so many different shapes and sizes have been considered ideal over our shared history.

According to Dove, just 4 out of 10 curly haired girls think their hair is beautiful. But a new campaign by the beauty company in collaboration with ad agency Ogilvy and Mather Paris, hopes to change this.
The #LoveYourCurls campaign hopes to encourage women to embrace their hair’s curls and texture regardless of their race or ethnicity. Knowing the role women have on the young girls in their lives — whether that role be as a mother, teacher, or just a friend — the campaign hopes to motivate women of all ages to love their curls and spread that love to other women and girls in their lives.
Comedy troupe Hammerkatz Nyu has released a hilarious new parody of modern tampon commercials, with their version imagining one made by an all-male advertising team.
The sketch takes on some of the more ridiculous beliefs some men may have about a woman’s time of the month, or as the video believes “sometimes hundreds of times per day!”
The tampons being advertised are apparently good for all types of the female anatomy, even the ones that are “tall, short, round, square, or shaped like a weird ghost.” Watch below, then visit the Hammerkatz YouTube channel for more.
