So another fabulous mama - CrazedMomof2 - shared this great link in another thread that shows real photos of real women.  It shows women of all different shapes, sizes, heights, etc.  I thought it was SUPER FAB (in my Sid the Science Kid voice) and had to share.  

Check out the My Body Gallery.  


(throwing in a pic of myself with stats too)

Height - 5'8     Weight - 197 lbs

Shirt size - XL

That is a really neat site. Its crazy cuz when I search my height & weight there are so many different types of bodies. Some of them its hard to believe they weigh that much

I swear nobody has my body type.  I'm basically an inverted triangle...larger on top and narrow at the bottom.  So when I tried that site, nothing came really close since there wasn't a choice for inverted triangle body type :/  But it is an interesting site!

Exactly!  I think more women (and men) need to see thing like this.

That's the whole purpose - that no one is going to look how we look.  We're all different shapes, sizes, heights, weights, etc.  It's kinda showing that not even the models on the cover of a world wide magazine fit into one particular mold.  So that's okay that no one was close to your size or shape, you're still beautiful.
