There's No Such Thing As Universal Beauty

There's No Such Thing As Universal Beauty

There has been for a long time a common misconception that beautiful does not mean fit, but means ultra-skinny, if not bony to put into visual words. More and more young girls and women fall every day into the trap of eating disorder diseases in an attempt to make themselves look more attractive for a society that seems to promote only extreme slimness as a measure of beauty. This, however, asks the question of what is beautiful in the world, and whether women should try to meet a universally recognized standard of beauty to become attractive and appealing to their partners.

 

Society Is Actively Trying To Ban Super-Skinny Standards

In the USA 20 million of women suffer from anorexia, against 10 million of men. In the UK, over 1.6 million of people from both genders - however the majority are women - are clinically anorexic. However big the number is, it is likely to be an underestimate as there is an even larger number of people who don’t seek medical support. However what is certain is that every year 20% of anorexic patients die from complications caused by their eating disorder. As a result, the French parliament has been looking to pass an international legislation to reduce extreme slimness for professional models, and hopefully reduce its negative impact on the society. In short, what this means, is that everywhere the society is waking up to the horrors of glamorization of overly skinny bodies and wants to step back. Super-skinny is not drop dead gorgeous anymore; it’s only drop dead. Beauty lies somewhere else, so does health.  

 

There Are Clothes For All Shapes And Every Shape Has A Market

The high street fashion is more and more looking to include cuts and styles to please all body shapes, from tall and athletic to short and curvalicious. This is a great step towards a more open-minded society that accepts that there could be more than one standard of beauty. At the core of the fashion industry, women find their trusted lingerie to evolve accordingly, with playful wireless ensemble to suit small chests with style and sturdy and elegant underwear for fuller shapes, such as the sensual Tutti Rouge lingerie that has made a priority to keep beautiful curves secured and maintained. Suddenly, the diversity of the fashion markets speaks volume for multi-dimensional standards.

 

Different Cultures And Different Standards Of Beauty

Surprisingly, there is another proof that beauty doesn’t respond to any universal standard. A recent survey has asked men from all over the world about their favorite type of shape in a woman. The responses are as varied as they are cultures on the planet. South African men tend to favorize an athletic body shape, while Senegalese men prefer proportioned, round women. Japanese fall for the Kawaii type, cute and petite, while Colombian guys love women with a large upper body. In short, beauty is everywhere, and it is different everywhere too. So don’t look for the catwalks for the latest beauty trends, every shape has its merits!
