We're not sure what's wrong with our skinny-mini obsessed society today (we're talking to you, Ralph Lauren), but fat used to be in and even worshipped. The Venus of Willendorf Soap ($35) bears evidence of our ancient past. Take this glycerin soap as a cleansing sign to be proud of woman, large and in charge, voluptuous and not afraid to flaunt it. The term "curvy" should never ever have to be a euphemism.
Uncover the dusty story with us. Archaeologist Josef Szombathy discovered the Venus of Willendorf outside Vienna back in 1908. The 26,000 year-old beauty is thought to be the oldest divine figure of fertility, and is categorized as within a group of Paleolithic artifacts called Venus Figurines. Designer Sarah Schwartz went to the source and cast her mold directly from the original artifact in the late 1970s, so this soap is an absolutely to scale reproduction of the Venus herself. Cool, huh?
