What you Should Know about Trends

plastic surgery trendsEntering into this new year, or any new year, one of the messages we receive loud and clear is what is on trend for the months ahead. Many of us watch these trends, or even follow them, with great pleasure. They tell us what to wear, what to drive, what music is now in, and even how we should look. Have you noticed that trends span many of the areas of life? That what men and women are wearing could actually create a craze in the area of body type?

If you imagine the “it” girls of today, who comes to mind? Kim Kardashian? Nicki Minaj? Maybe Beyonce or J.Lo? What these trendsetters have in common is a beautiful backside, a feature that has become so valued in today’s age that there is actually a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to help individuals get a more rounded, more bootylicious booty. Clearly, we do not abide by the mindset that a man or woman should not change their body or face through cosmetic surgery. At the same time, we do want to bring to light how trends may not be a good thing to follow, especially when it comes to your body type.

  • During the early years of the 20th Century, the ideal body type was oh so curvaceous that women who wanted to emulate The Gibson Girl, a figure out of illustrator Charles Gibson’s imagination, had to wear skin-poking, rib-squeezing corsets to achieve the look.
  • About a quarter of the way into the century, flapper style became the trend, and this called for a straight-as-an-arrow body type.
  • The 1940s wartime era brought admiration for strength. Tall, sinewy body types were fit with clothing armed with shoulder pads and pointed brassieres.
  • By the 1960s, we were back to being in love with the no-figure woman. The body type of Twiggy and other stick-thin models. Thirty years later, we were once again seeing a love for this waif-like body type.
  • People magazine named 2014 the Year of the Butt. In fact, our appreciation for the oversized buttocks began in 2010. It continues to this day.

The thing about Trends . . .

As you can see, trends do not stay the same for long! Someday, Ms. Kardashian and those like her may wish for a taller, thinner, less curvy frame. The point is, your body type is your body type, and that is a beautiful thing. Cosmetic surgery and other treatments are intended to accentuate what you have so you’re always in style!
