Social media has given society a very unrealistic concept of what bodies look like.
Not that this is anything new. Advertising, movies, TV, and music videos have been shoving this down our throats for decades.
But social media has taken it up a notch as people show off their seemingly “perfect” lives and bodies for everyone to fawn over.
These ladies, however, have decided to teach everyone a valuable lesson by showing people what real bodies and real people look like. Let us begin…
1. Skin has texture.
