It's hard to view our place in history, but everything changes over time. Politics, languages, and even what people find beautiful or sexy.
There’s a lot of factors in both culture and society that influence what we find attractive, so let’s go back over 100 years to see how we got to where we are today.
I think you’ll see that things have a way of coming back around, even over just 100 years.
In the Victorian Era in the 1800s, waists got REALLY small. The hourglass shape was in, even if women weren't exactly showing a lot of skin.

The cinched outfits actually led to deformed ribs, difficulty breathing, and crooked backs. So if you think you’re doing a lot now to look your best…just be glad it’s not harming you.
In the early 1900s, the Gibson Girl became the picture of beauty.
The hourglass figure was still there, but the look was a little more casual and the corsets got a little looser.
In the '20s, skin started to show with the popularity of the flapper girl look.
This was a rebellion against the prim and proper looks before, so girls took to baggy dresses and boyish haircuts, advertising a little more fun than before.
During this time, cleavage was still hidden, but showing off arms, shoulders, and short hair was all progress.
