Cassey Ho (31), fitness instruktorica iz Los Angelesa, poigrala se malo Photoshopom da bi dočarala kako se ideal ženske ljepote i oblina mijenjao kroz vrijeme, od mršavica do putenih žena koje svoje raskošne obline ne skrivaju. Kaže da je to napravila kako bi potaknula žene da ne teže medijski nametnutim proporcijama već zavole svoje tijelo upravo onakvo kakvo im je priroda dala.

For those of you who have been waiting ALLLL YEARRRR for a sale on @popflex_active, your patience has paid off. Black Friday began early…and you can get 40% OFF on popflexactive.com NOW!!!! Yes even our popular vegan suede yoga mats!!! Ahhhhh!!!!! The code is “friyay”. . SIZE GUIDE . I know that the fits have varied a little, so to help you avoid exchanges…follow this guide! . 🔹PEONY – Everything here fits true to size. Set The Bar Bra is a compression fit, so ok to go one size up. . 🔹MERMAID – same as above. . 🔹DARK BLOOM – Tighter Fit. In leggings and bras, you can go one size up from the size chart. The tanks and long sleeves etc are true to size. People have said they like the Queen’s Coat one size down. Same with the flyaway run shorts. If you’re interested in the black highness legging, read under “new stuff”. . 🔹DUSTY BLOSSOM – Tanks are true to size. Due to the tightness from the Dark Bloom collection, we increased our sizing but the fabric stretched more than we expected so…looser fit! (I know, sorry.) In general you can go one size down for leggings and bras. . 🔹NEW STUFF – Romper is true to size. Go with your bra size, not your legging size when ordering. Highness is wayyyyyy stretchier than before (we added more room in the booty and a little length too) so it’s ok to go a size down. Classic legging, same as highness comments. . Ok hope that helped! And sorry for the confusion. I know it’s frustrating to shop like this, but we are trying so hard to perfect our fit! Yes I admit, it keeps changing. I too am incredibly upset when sizing can’t stay consistent with a brand, so THANK YOU for trusting the process. We’re a small business and that’s why it’s taking us so long to release collections as we re-engineer the fit to suit your bodies best! Gonna get there! Promise. ♥️ #popflex
– Ponekad zurim u ogledalo i pitam se kako bih izgledala da imam ‘savršeno tijelo’, poput onih koje gledam u časopisima i na Instagramu. Da nije 2018. godina, kako bi onda izgledalo moje idealno tijelo – pitala se nakon što je na svojem blogu objavila seriju od šest obrađenih fotografija svojeg tijela, a koju možete niže pogledati.

If I had the “perfect” body throughout history, this is what I’d look like. . Mid 2010s-2018 – Big butts, wide hips, tiny waists, and full lips are in! There is a huge surge in plastic surgery for butt implants thanks to Instagram models posting “belfies”. 🍑 Even cosmetic surgery doctors have become IG-famous for reshaping women. Between 2012-2014, butt implants and injections rise by 58%. . Mid 90s-2000s – Big boobs, flat stomachs, and thighs gaps are in. In 2010, breast augmentation is the highest performed cosmetic surgery in the United States. 👙 It’s the age of the Victoria’s Secret Angel. She’s tall, thin, and she’s always got long legs and a full chest. . Early 90s – THIN IS IN. Having angular bone structure, looking emaciated, and super skinny is what’s dominating the runways and the magazine covers. There’s even a name for it: “heroin chic”. . 1950s – The hourglass shape is in. ⏳ Elizabeth Taylor‘s 36-21-36 measurements are the ideal. Marilyn Monroe’s soft voluptuousness is lusted after. Women are advertised weight gaining pills to fill themselves out. Playboy magazine and Barbie are created in this decade. . 1920s – Appearing boyish, androgynous and youthful, with minimal breasts, and a straight figure is in! Unlike the “Gibson Girl” of the Victorian Era, women are choosing to hide their curves, and are doing so by binding their chests with strips of cloth to create that straight figure suitable for flapper dresses. . 1400-1700 The Italian Renaissance – Looking full with a rounded stomach, large hips, and an ample bosom is in. Being well fed is a sign of wealth and status. Only the poor are thin. . Why do we treat our bodies like we treat fashion? “Boobs are out! Butts are in!” Well, the reality is, manufacturing our bodies is a lot more dangerous than manufacturing clothes. Stop throwing your body out like it’s fast fashion. . Please treat your body with love & respect and do not succumb to the beauty standard. Embrace your body because it is YOUR own perfect body. ♥️ #blogilates #theperfectbody
U vrijeme u kojem živimo, sve popularnije su velike stražnjice i vrlo tanak struk, novi nametnuti ideal ljepote koji propagiraju Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj i Amber Rose.
U doba renesanse žene su bile punije, dok je dječačka građa bila poželjna 20-tih godina prošlog stoljeća. Tridesetak godina kasnije oblik pješčanog sata bilo je ono za čime su žene čeznule – bujne grudi, široki bokovi i tanak struk.
Gotovo anoreksičnom izgledu žene su težile 90-tih godina, no to se, srećom, počelo ublažavati narednih desetak godina kada su popularnu građu karakterizirale velike grudi, ravan trbuh i manja stražnjica. Tada je, kaže blogerica, industrija estetske kirurgije u SAD-u procvjetala – žene su čeznule za većim grudima i bile su spremne to platiti.

When I was in high school, I remember looking in the mirror, shaping my body with my hands, trying to look like the skinny models and actresses on the covers of Teen Vogue and SEVENTEEN. I’d pull my hips towards my butt so that I’d have straight hips/no hips. I’d pull my waist towards my back so that I’d have a tinier midsection. I’d pull my inner thighs toward my hamstrings so I’d have a bigger thigh gap. . It’s crazy that today, the view on hips has completely flipped 180 degrees! Now when I see my hips, I’m oddly “proud”? 🤔 It’s a weird feeling though because I‘m HYPER AWARE that it’s being affected by the fact that hips are now fashionable. What I’m truly bothered by is that I know that once hips are out of style, something that I once gave me self love can now be the source of my self hatred. 😔 . As you can see, even our own body confidence is being marketed to us!! Try as best as you can to NOT let society and the media tell us how we should feel about ourselves. And, why should they have that power? We own our bodies. Not them. #blogilates 📸 by @samlivits
– Molim vas, tretirajte svoje tijelo sa ljubavlju i poštovanjem i nemojte podleći nametnutim standardima ljepote. Prigrlite ga jer je to upravo vaše savršeno tijelo. Zar ćete zbilja dopustiti nekome drugome da vas uvjeri kako ono što je vaša majka donijela na ovaj svijet nije dovoljno dobro – dodala je i zapitala se zašto se žensko tijelo tretira kao što se tretira prolaznost mode i pozvala žene da obrate pažnju na povezanost modne industrije i medija u nametanju određenih standarda ljepote.
Evo kako je ona preoblikovala svoje tijelo po vremenskim periodima:
Od sredine 90-ih do 2000.
Početak 90-ih godina
Oko 1950. godina
Oko 1920. godina
Između 1400. i 1700.
Ovako Cassey zapravo izgleda

Real me today, 2018. . You know, this project was so interesting to me because as I was looking at myself getting photoshopped, I thought that I might secretly like one of the results. But the super odd thing was…all of them didn’t sit right with me. Not one! As obvious as it is to say this, I didn’t look like myself in the photos. I actually much prefer my body just as it is. Sure I’ve got a small butt, small boobs, a soft belly, and hip dips, but I’ve also got powerful legs, strong shoulders, and a figure that is all mine – unlike anyone else’s. . My question to all of us women is this: Why do we treat our bodies like we treat fashion? Who’s telling us what’s in and what’s out? . The more I think about this, the more I see the parallels between the fashion industry and the media industry. . The Media = The “designers” telling us who’s body is “in” based on the type of women we see chosen for ads, TV, and movies. Social media is no exception. The explore page on IG is currently full of Kim K bootied influencers. . Influencers and celebrities = The “runway models” that women look up to, want to look like, and even become. However, being the “it girl” doesn’t last long, so before we know it, there’s a new “cool girl” that’s been casted for the show, and now women unknowingly want to look like her because they see her everywhere. . Problem? You can’t just throw out a body part just because it’s “last season”!!! I mean, I guess you could, but you’re gonna lose a lot of $, time, and…blood. And seriously, are you going to let someone else tell you that the way your mother brought you into this world isn’t good enough? . BOTTOM LINE: Please treat your body with love & respect and do not succumb to the beauty standard. Embrace your body because it is YOUR own perfect body. . If you know a girl who needs to hear this message today, please tag her. . Also, I want to thank the amazing artist @danielkordek for helping me photoshop my body! (Haha, thought I’d never say that!) I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, and would not have been able to do it at this level without his help. #blogilates #theperfectbody
