Chart Shows How Women’s Bodies Were Judged in the Miss Universe Contest in 1959

A chart published in 1959, which was shared by the LA Times blog, illustrating how women’s bodies were judged in the Miss Universe contest:
  1. Shoulders too square
  2. Shoulders too sloping
  3. Hips too wide
  4. Shoulder bones too pronounced 
  5. Shoulders and back hunched
  6. Legs irregular, with spaces at calves, knees and thighs
  7. The form divine, needs only a beautiful face

Not that society’s standards for beauty have changed drastically since, but this chart reveals the level of scrutiny that women faced in 1959.
