Today’s mainstream image of beauty is still as thin as a rail, but things are slowly changing: The starving look is on its way out!
Stars like Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé are proud of their curves and are showing girls and women that they don’t have to be a size 2 to be beautiful.
Rounder women are gaining confidence and don’t have to feel ashamed about their curvy figures.
Raylynn, from Georgia, USA, is one of those women: On Instagram, she displays her body with confidence and encourages women to accept their bodies as they are.
The 24-year-old has a trim torso paired with a 70-inch hip diameter.
This is an uncommon proportion mostly due to lymphedema in her legs, which causes fluid retention and swelling. But this doesn’t stop the new mother from proudly displaying her body online.
However, there are always some critics. Many people don’t believe that Raylynn’s pictures are real; they think she photoshops them. To prove them wrong, Raylynn recently posted a video revealing her body to her doubters.
