From being more accepting of the LGBTQ+ community and decreasing the stigma behind mental illnesses, I am so thankful to be alive now, where society is constantly changing the norms. This has also translated to changes in the modeling industry. As more and more companies begin to work with models who look like real people, the rigid structure of the “ideal” body type has fallen apart. Everyone is beautiful in their own way and these six models are great examples of women who love their bodies.
