There is a long and broad history of the ideal female body type to require artificially exaggerating some aspect of it. Why is this? Is it the result of women competing based on their appearance, so that any valued feature is taken beyond its natural extreme? Also, some of the alterations by nature make the woman less capable and independent. Many of these images will appear grotesque to our eyes, but consider the exaggerations we are conditioned to value. Consider the following...
Circulatory restriction causes fainting spells.
Pushes shoulders down.
Causes back problem and requires second surgery in 20 years.
(Not sure if this is gender specific)
