Women/Models In the 50’s compared To Models Now

Models in the 50’s were healthy curvy inspiring women in my opinion. Although now a days most models meet the criteria of anorexia, and the sizing of previous models would be classed as plus sized models. This is an example of the bad influences the media can have on women as it telling the women that being healthy and curvy is FAT and being quite skinny is the ideal body.
