    Golden age of Hollywood beats all other in this video by a big margin



  2. JRoselle02 on January 2, 2019 at 12:49 pm

    It’s sad that there is called Ideal Body Type to this day… girls including boys should love their own body😊



  3. Austrian Bish on January 2, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    I hate my butt, it’s way to big and useless, I mean I just sit and poop.
    Why is it so big?!



  4. Wh Y on January 2, 2019 at 12:52 pm

  8. khareesh reddy on January 2, 2019 at 12:57 pm

    Damn i love women.



  9. Destiny Alba on January 2, 2019 at 12:57 pm

    For the description gor the modern day model why didn’t it just say fake or plastic or walking VD



  10. Lol No on January 2, 2019 at 12:59 pm

    Isn’t putting all the woman in the section that isn’t modern day like saying their bodies are outdated? 🤔



  11. Greg A Gamer on January 2, 2019 at 12:59 pm

    Love your body? Sure but that shouldnt block out the fact it might be unhealthy to be fat or "chubby"

    Also stop saying they are all beautiful for they might bot be to everyone beauty is in the eye of the beholder not who declares it



  12. Yue Yuzuki on January 2, 2019 at 12:59 pm

    The standards went from one extreme to the other. Whatever, I’ll just be myself



  13. W&M productions on January 2, 2019 at 1:00 pm

    Why is there a naked kim kardashian at the background at 2:37



  14. Taco Belle on January 2, 2019 at 1:00 pm

  20. Adriana Galindo on January 2, 2019 at 1:05 pm

    Marilyn Monroe was not plus size



  21. Nicholas Hong on January 2, 2019 at 1:06 pm

    And landwhales will never be considered beautiful



  22. Emily on January 2, 2019 at 1:07 pm

    I like for how the last one it states, “women regularly get plastic surgery to achieve this look.” Goes to show the beauty standards of today are so unrealistic…the ones who can’t afford plastic surgery rely on expensive makeup and Snapchat filters to achieve that look 😏



  23. JRoselle02 on January 2, 2019 at 1:08 pm

    NEVER USE WHITE FONT IF YOU’RE GOING TO USE WHITE BACKGROUND👏👏👏



  24. Samuel Burgers on January 2, 2019 at 1:10 pm

  28. Brasilia on January 2, 2019 at 1:17 pm

  29. Ugh Becky on January 2, 2019 at 1:21 pm

    Im totally Ancient Greece…reading the comments makes me feel ashamed for being who I am…I’m sorry I don’t consider silicone and facetune attractive..however naturally skinny and just plain natural anything is gorgeous.



  30. Karli Frances on January 2, 2019 at 1:21 pm

    I belong in the 1920s cuz I’m skinny af



  31. Abigail Harrison on January 2, 2019 at 1:23 pm

    Okay but I don’t think this accurate with corsets women wanted a VERY skinny waist but yet they showed an overweight model



  32. Cherry Cola on January 2, 2019 at 1:23 pm

  38. Jasmine Jhun on January 2, 2019 at 1:32 pm

    Too bad I live in a Korean family with unrealistic Korean Beauty Standards…

    Yo, Korean beauty standards are so impossible, Korean’s can’t do it, even if they get plastic surgery…

    Bro the most beautiful Korean celebs don’t even exactly follow the Korean beauty standards…

    Yet everyone around me wishes for me to exceed them…



  39. Maddie Edits My Guy on January 2, 2019 at 1:34 pm

    2018-2019 is THICC



  40. bubu Badmanna on January 2, 2019 at 1:36 pm
