Point to Ponder

With the economic downturn in full effect and expected to get much deeper, Jane Donuts wonders what effect that will have on the ever evolving ideal of the woman's physique?

In the way that the skinny, flat-chested flapper ideal of the roaring 20s gave way to the curvy, ultra-feminine silhouettes of the more fiscally conservative 40s and 50s, could the bone-starved status symbol thinness of the 90s and 2000s give way to a more lush form in the 2010s? Out with the Gwenyths and Jennifer Anistons, in with the Beyonces? Don't think we'll ever quite prize a rubenesque figure again, but how about less bicep, more boob?

A girl can dream.

p.s. Holy shit! This article just came up at the top of Jane Donuts's gmail page. Wow.

In a no bicep, no boob world, I'm the bees' knees.

Well then maybe your time is up, sister! Alternatively, have you considered implants?
