Gender Roles in Body Image By: Marijana Zugic 1900 2000 1940 1910 1920 1930 1950 1960 1970 1980 1990 Timeline of the 20th Century 1920s During the flapper era, dancer’s figures were regarded as beautiful; full-figured and muscular. The Victorian hourglass gave way to the thin flapper who bound her breasts to
achieve a washboard profile. Thin, boyish figure with little or no curves. Wore underwear that flattened chest for a masculine look. Some women binded their breast for a flatter chest. After World War I, active lifestyles added another dimension. Energy and vitality became central and body fat was perceived to contribute to inefficiency and was seen as a sign of self-indulgence.

Web. 11 July 2012. <http://lovemissdaisyvintage.blogspot.ca/2010_11_01_archive.html>. 1910s 1900s 1930s 1940s 1950s 1960s 1970s 1980s 1990s 2000s Small waist was still in fashion. A health corset was worn tightly. Also, pushed the bust forward and the hips back, creating an 'S' shape. What is Body Image? A picture in our mind's eye. Belief about how others perceive us. How we feel living in our bodies. Women started to get active and athletic. Physical fitness introduced a slender shape in fashion. Corset were out of fashion and brassiere were worn. Slightly curvier figure with a bigger bust and wanted slim hips. Women brought in the corset back in 1930s. Then a 'girdle' - a bra and attached garters. After the war, curves were back in fashion. Slim waists, long, full skirts were back into style. Underwear started to be worn for emphasizing the breast, instead of the waist. Bra was worn for lifting and enhancing breasts. "Falsies" - extra padding in bra was added for a bigger breast look. Mini skirt was in fashion. Petticoats and curves were no longer in style. A famous celebrity during this period was Twiggy. The Barbie doll was created with huge breasts, never-ending legs, non-existent hips, and teeny-tiny waist. Women started to work out for a fit body shape. Diet and exercising were fairly common. They wanted a muscular body, but with nice curves. Weight losing became popular. Women wanted to be tall, skinny with big breast. Women still used lingerie to help get the body shape they want, including corsets, body-shapers, control tights, push-up bras and magic knickers. Thinness is the ultimate body shape goal. Women nowadays do plastic surgery, gastric reductions and radical diets to get skinny. "Perceptions of Body Image Throughout History timeline | Timetoast timelines."

A thin woman with a large bust line was considered most attractive. The voluptuous (size 16) Marilyn Monroe set a new standard for women who now needed to rebuild the curves they had previously tried to bind and restrain. Men are always seen as intelligent, the providers, with bodies that are strong and tall. Woman are seen as ignorant, helpless, with bodies that are thin and curvy, and belong at home.

Males husky with a gruff look. Natural look was in fashion and the "Hippie" look was in style. But, women still wanted small waist, hips and large breast. Then after a while, toned skin was popular.
