How did the ideal of the male body change

Society creates its ideals not only around the female figure, but also the male one. In the course of the story, fashion, cultural changes and even the availability of food influenced such standards of beauty.

Artist Nikolai Lamm, who once created Lammily’s dolls with realistic proportions, decided to show how the ideal of the male body changed over time. He collected photos of ideal men of every decade, starting in the 1870s, and created 3D models.

So, at the end of the 19th century, a complete figure with a “beer belly” was considered ideal. Big waist and plump cheeks were a sign of wealth and high social status. The fact is that not everyone had access to abundance of food, because even obesity symbolized wealth.
