    Like around the 90s and 80s people would tie rope around their stomach to make them skinnier o.O some people still do but it is less common nowdays

    ive rewatched these history of videos so many times, as a history nerd, its so interesting to watch especially since Saf is the narator!! do more of these pretty please, perhaps with the history of jeans, or skincare, or piercings?
