I'm on holiday so the proper blogpost will follow but this is my picture for braless in brasil's (www.bralessinbrasil.com) awesome diversity in lingerie campaign! check out her masterpost and follow our campaign under the hashtag #diversityinlingerie.
edit: Everyone else already wrote AMAZING blog posts, I really don't know what else I could add. So please just check out the links below for further input!
#diversityinlingerie: This is me, scars and all unphotoshopped.
Don't get me wrong - I'm a pretty well represented body type. I'm a white cis female of average weight. But I know - not everyone looks like me.
For example the only time I see people with selfharm scars in the media is when they are presented as mental, victims or both. But I'm not a victim, I'm a survivor. And that's pretty cool. And I sure as hell don't want to hide that.
And like I want to see women I can relate to I'm sure other women want to see relatable women in lingerie too.
Where are the women of colour? Where are trans* women? Where is more diversity in sizes and body types (muscular builds anyone?)? Where are androgynous women? Where are disabled women? Where are the mothers? Where are women past their 30ies? Where are the stretchmarks on our thighs or bellies? Where are women after mastectomies?
We are a diverse world. We are the media. We want to be represented.
And dear brands - if you use diverse models, if you use diverse campaigns - there are a LOT of us out there appreciating this.
