I was just thinking...since you think broad jaws are beautiful because they project more power and health than a thin-jawed face, why not like broad shoulders on women, for the very same reason?
Truth is I'm starting to be kind of self-conscious about my pretty heavy, prominent shoulders. I used to love them, but more and more people comment on them in a way that makes me feel less feminine and "unpretty".
Like, when I go shopping for new clothes the shop-assistans say things like "you should wear this. It really covers your shoulders"..it sounds just plain rude to me.
And they're not abnormally broad, either. Just a bit broader than my also broad hips..LOL.
I really don't see how small shoulders are prettier or even more feminine than broad shoulders. I mean, lots of beauties have had them, and still do: Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez, Monica Bellucci, and old beauties like Ursula Andress, Brigitte Bardot, or Ava Gardner..and the list may go on.
Even ultra-feminine Liv Tyler has exceptionally large shoulders.
What do you think? Are they really "out of line" with feminine beauty? Or can they also be seen as a kind of "broad jaw" attribute?
