If the beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then history proves the beholder enjoys a lot of different body types.

Certainly every era has it's ideal body type, but few in any era actually fall into the ideal category. So, the concept of an ideal in my opinion, is actually a myth.

Think of it this way, ideal is whatever your body type is, regardless of what era your ideal body type fits into.Or as they say, 'love the skin you're in.'
