Having the “perfect body ” type is something that many people have strived for. Although we are all aware that there is no such thing as “perfect,” we still aim for it as we connect perfection to being beautiful.
What we keep forgetting is the fact that “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” In fact, what’s considered “perfect” today might not be seen that way tomorrow. Here’s why the idea of a “perfect body” keeps changing and what it will be like in the future.
Hunger makes men like plump women more.
Research has shown that even modern men find plump women more attractive when they are feeling hungry.
Co-researcher Dr. Martin Tovée, from Newcastle University, said:
“Your cognitive state, your drives and your interests are dependent on your underlying physiology, your blood sugar levels and your hormone levels and these depend upon hunger.”
It’s society that determines what an ideal will be.
Most of us let society define the “perfect body” shape. We mostly base it on a current popular celebrity or social media star’s physique.
A woman with an hourglass body shape is an indicator of fertility.
It is believed that wide hips, a big belly, and large breasts were associated with sensuality and fertility. A study even backed it up, noting that women with an hourglass figure have a higher level of estradiol and progesterone. Both of these hormones contribute to successful conception.
The appearance of the androgynous beauty standard
“Girl power” is more than just a catchy line. A lot of women realized that they are enough and didn’t have to please men. If they want shorter hair and stop enhancing their curves, they allow themselves to do that.
In the world of social media, people were exposed to various body shapes. A lot of famous and regular people use these platforms in an attempt to show awareness that the “perfect body type” is not just one shape.
As for the future, it’s likely that the “perfect body” shape for women will stay slim. Why? It is because most of the countries of the civilized world have enough food to eat, so plump shapes will be associated with obesity.
Although the hourglass figure will still be an ideal shape, people will be more open-minded when it comes to androgyny. It is highly possible that the feminine beauty standard in the near future will lack any gender indicators.
