body size

body size
   Fashion imagery operates around the display of an idealized body shape which, while continually changing, is always at variance with the general population. In the 1960s, Twiggy encapsulated the underdeveloped waif, which was to be revived in the 1990s in reaction to the aerobicized and worked-out body of the late 1970s and 1980s. In the 1990s, men have not escaped notions of the ideal with the stress on perfect pectorals and a muscular abdomen. The ideal body shape as perpetuated by the fashion industry met with criticism as a result of the critique provided by feminism in the late 1960s and 1970s. Feminism continues to question the viability of a fashionably ideal body to which women should aspire.
