I found this image of an older ad while browsing the internet today. I think it was published about 50 years ago. How crazy is this?! Refreshing to see a woman with some curves, definitely. But it clearly shows that advertisements have always put pressure on us – whether it is to gain or lose weight. It has gotten worse, absolutely, but the pressure put on appearance and weight has always been there. The interesting thing here, is that it seems to be more of a social status. I want to be happy that the model actually looks healthy. But, I feel like I can’t because the body-altering message is still prominent.
