Formatted abstract
Maynard examines changing female bodily perceptions in Australia as represented by the reshaping of the fashion model, both human and porcelain, from the 1920s to the 1990s. In this examination, she charts an alarming slide from endorsement of the plump and robust body to admiration of the anorexic and skeletal, while holding out some hope for female revisionist intervention and reengagement.
