Women in Australia have decided to stop comparing their bodies to inanimate fruit. Instead, they're naming their shapes after artists who celebrate the female figure — like Leonardo da Vinci and Peter Paul Rubens. One lingerie model putting the change on display explained: "I was a pear, but now I'm a Matisse. Matisse always painted such beautiful women." Da Vinci represents a straight up and down shape, and Rembrandt denotes a full bust and bottom.
A body image expert conceded that classifying women's bodies typically presents problems, but "these categories let women know that all types of body shapes have been around for a long time and have been considered beautiful by artists throughout history."
