Many times YES! I’m skinny in a curveless type of way and there is nothing I can do to achieve the slim-thick ideal— there just isn’t the mass! I would end up destroying my knees with squats before getting anything resembling a peach in my behind. The only way out of this is by not having a beauty standard all together. There isn’t a single way to have a beautiful body, after all. But like you said, having a single body model to aspire to makes a few people a lot of money. If we don’t strive to change our shapes, how will the plastic surgeons and gyms thrive? Think of the poor gyms! I was born and raised in Brazil, so slim-thick was ALWAYS the ideal (that I never fit). When i was younger and the US still liked skinniness, I thought that once I moved to the US, that I would feel good about my body and I would fit the desired standard, but lo and behold, slim-thick became mainstream there too JUST when I moved. Just my luck!
