Does anybody know what was the ideal of beauty as regards weigth during the regency?
In "Our Tempestous Days" Princess Charlotte is described as "fat". Now, I don't think she was so, according to the pictures I've seen of her, even if she were not considered slim, pursuant to modern standards.
I think that ideal ultra thin woman of our times would have been considered too skinny in that times, but I am sure the women were not as fleshy as later in the century. But this is only my opinon.
So, can somebody help?
