Yes. That's why in most of the civilised world, you married at 20, your wife was ugly at 22 and you where dead by 30. Women have gotten prettier only because society has given them the time to. Less stress, less malnutrition etc.
>fat only the rich >hairy this is a modern meme, like 10th century japanese finding white teeth unattractive >smelly in urban areas everything would smell like sewage, rural peasants would spend all day exposed to the elements, they would smell but not stink, unless you're one of those people who wretches at smell of compost
Both wrong. In Europe from medieval times to the early modern most people married in their mid to late twenties. The main reason being that they didn't have enough money to support a family until they were older. The exception was typically the very rich for who marriage was an important political and business venture, the age being less important than the ramifications of the union.
>>667776 Slightly incorrect, up until the 1700s most people didnt even bother with the contemporary notion of marriage, generally local traditions superseded what the gentry considered of marriage. Also low life expectancy forces you to start having kids when you're young, if you dont expect to live past 35 you're going to want to get in early to ensure that your children stand a chance of surviving.
Girls that were "fat" as you say were idealized back then because, back when obtaining your food was a pretty fucking serious daily task in the lives of most humans, having some weight on you was an indication that you were well fed, healthy, and well off in life. In fact, this was considered the case for most of human history.
It's really a fairly new phenomenon that so many people condemn any weight on the body that isn't toned muscle whatsoever, and it's probably due to widespread obesity we now have. But it's also due to unrefined taste. "Fat" girls are more attractive than sticks and muscular pseudo-men.
