The Renaissance occasioned the rebirth of Classical learning and a rediscovery of Classical art and aesthetics, so it stands to reason that it continues to inspire an appreciation of full-figured feminine beauty.

When I think back, I remember many interesting posts on this forum that have been related to Renaissance topics. There was Tamika's post, earlier this year, about a Renaissance-themed video game (talk about using modern technology to bring the past to life):

The original post on Renaissance beauty, discussing Firenzuola's On the Beauty of Women, a Renaissance-era guide to aesthetics which defined the timeless ideal of femininity as being full-figured:

And of course, the first of those two, "Art and Love in Renaissance Italy," was the setting for this site's Kailee O'Sullivan interview, "Art and Modelling in New York City":
