Well in the 1950's and 60's attitudes were different. There were many advertisements prompting a curvier shape as the ideal, offering products to help skinny women become curvy girls. Instead of showing before and after weight loss, the reverse was popular - before and after weight gain.
So what do we think about that? Does the past hold more positive body acceptance messages or is suggesting women take a pill to gain weight, still just the media projecting and controlling body image standards?
Personally I'm happy I look more like the after in this picture. What about you… sound off now - why weight? ;-)
