Body positivity is so critical.

Although, we have yet gotten to the point where we fully appreciate all body types as a society, we can definitely say that we have made progress. Some of the biggest fashion names in the industry have had curvy models walk in their runways and become the face of their brand. While all of that is amazing, it's still hard for a lot of people to appreciate dips, rivets, curves and rolls when they see them. Because at the end of the day we are all human, yet we are different -- right?
What makes it okay to glorify a woman with a slender body type, but look down upon the woman who chooses to freely embrace a little extra weight? While we aren't glorifying unhealthiness, there is a huge difference. In this social experiment seen below, a young woman purposely goes shopping for clothes she regularly wouldn't wear out in public just to show the world that she is not ashamed to show off her belly. One word: empowering. If you're searching for a bit of self-confidence this morning, look no further. You've come to the right place. Keep scrolling and continue to promote body positivity.

What are your honest thoughts about this social experiment?

Do you agree that all bodies are equal?

I totally agree! we all need that reminder every now and then @FlamingX
She's growing to be my favorite Buzzfeed staff member. We have a really similar body type, so it's nice to see someone I can relate to trying all these different body positivity things lol.
Yes!!!! She's amazing!!! Quinta is my fave, but she def comes in second :) way to go body positivity! @danidee
Quinta reminds me of my best friend Janelle. They're both really honest in the best way lol. Janelle will definitely let me know when she feels like someone's trying to take advantage of my niceness.
I need to find myself a Quinta or a Janelle as a friend, haha @danidee
