The frail thin bodies of today are only media inforced standards. Real women have real bodies, and those are the ones I'm referring to.

oiy they have become far to skinny and angular. Look at Marilyn Monroe, or even go further back to someone like Clara Bow, Mae West and the likes they had lovely curves versus say An Olsen Twin, Kira Knightely etc.

Perhaps they have changed in that the ideal stereotype has changed from a more voluptuous woman, to a thinner . . . <br />
But other than that, I don't really think so.<br />
If you prescribe to the theory of evolution, or natural selection then you should know that although we are all in a constant state of transformation, but noticeable differences take much longer than a couple of generations.

Its hard to tell, the way they wore those long dresses down to their ankles and came up around their necks.

Exactly. I see women from the mid 50's and up in videos, and they look quite plump, very similar to the women of today. But before the 50's, a woman was basically bandaged from head to toe mostly.

Taller. That's related to diet. <br />
Skinnier. That's related to women's own obsessions.

I think the female form has change quite a bit. Back in the day, they ate what they could afford, so food wasn't very nutritional, but on the plus side it wasn't processed. This caused women back in the day to be naturally thinner than women of today. Today we have more money, more opportunities to 'eat like kings' and the convenience of fast food and more processed foods, causing the average body size of a woman today to be quite a few sizes larger than those of woman at the turn of the century. <br />
<br />
Our desired body image has change though. Back 100 years ago, women who were more voluptuous were more desirable because it reflected her wealth (the more money you had, the more you ate), where as today, some women are literally dying to be a size zero because that's what society states is beautiful. I'd sooner have the ideals of 100 years ago any day!
