In the past few years, awareness about body image issues has become a popular topic of conversation. 

A new Buzzfeed video looks at how society's perspective on what an ideal body looks like has changed every decade. The video really has us reflecting on how we view our own bodies based on what ideal is currently popular. 

Think about what the ideal body is for a women today- slim waist, large breasts and a large tush. However, way back when during the times of Ancient Egypt, the ideal body was completely different. It consisted of a narrow waist and slender shoulders. During the Italian Renaissance the ideal body was a round tummy and light skin.

This video can't help but make us wonder what the next ideal body type will look like.
