#diversityinlingerie: This is me, scars and all unphotoshopped.

DiversityinLingerie

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.
