Ren Faire and Real Beauty

I noticed that at Ren Faire, that even though the dress code hailed from a time when women were not exactly well treated, the dresses were complementary to a wide variety of frames– compared to modern clothing which is often drawn to be most complementary to a body with a 9-1 height to head ratio. Not saying that corsets and bodices are exactly humane when the strings are pulled tight–Wikipedia seems to think that the bad rep for the style has to do with ill fitting garb. Anyhow, just came to mind again when I was watching the Real Beauty Campaign movie.
