‘Regular Women’ In Lingerie Remind Us What Imperfect, Un-Photoshopped Bodies Look Like: Lets take a look at some of these Body positive beauties that bared all to celebrate their bodies and prove you can be sexy at any size

 The world of plus-size modeling has grown seemingly overnight, with gorgeous faces

 like Robyn Lawley and Tara Lynn modeling for more covers and ad campaigns than ever.

But even plus-size models are still models, leaving some women wanting for even more diverse body imagery to look up to. According to Chrystal Bougon, owner of plus-size lingerie store Curvy Girl, “There are so many pictures of models in lingerie, but I’m constantly asked for pictures of our products on ‘regular’ bodies… In the fashion world, anything over size 4 is considered plus-size. I know, it’s a big joke.”

Making an important point about looking and feeling good in the nude, the models fought back against heavy airbrushing and body ideals in the media.

“Inspired by a customer, I wanted to show that women with rolls, bumps, lumps, scars, stretch marks, surgery scars and natural breasts that have nursed babies can be stunning and beautiful.”

And women have responded in full-force, posting their own photos to Curvy Girl’s Facebook page in high numbers. Bougon tells HuffPost Style that since starting the campaign, Curvy Girl’s page grew by 3,500 fans in just 3 days, a response that she says is “so touching and empowering, too.”

 

Of course, by stripping down and showing off their unairbrushed, imperfect bodies, Bougon says, the women are making themselves vulnerable to criticism. “We all know some people will hate on these curvy girls, saying mean, nasty things about their beautiful bodies,” she stated. “But you never know who you might help or empower when they see they’re not the only woman with cellulite, rolls, scars, saggy breasts or stretch marks. After all, life is not Photoshopped!”

You can get in the body empowerment action on Facebook and get inspired by a look at some of the “regular women” below.

    • LMFAO. Fat gene. People metabolize starches and sugars differently, more efficient metabolisms use more sugar and can therefore store more of it as fat. And with the processed food that corporations manufacture using poor quality ingredients its no wonder diabetes and obesity are endemic.

  1. Scientists believe as many as nine in 10 obese people are fat because of their genes. That is wrong because my aunt is the only one in our family that is obesed.

  2. Hah! What rubbish they should just call it the bone idle gene. Out of obese people a tiny percentage can link it to a genuine medical condition. Most are just lazy, greedy pigs sorry if the truth hurts.
