When it comes to hateful speech and negativity, these two best friends don’t get mad. They get body positive.
Georgia Gibbs and Kate Wasley are a pair of Australia-based models who are size six and 16, respectively. After a photo of the two together garnered hateful reactions about their bodies, they decided to take matters into their own hands and created a rad social media initiative called Any Body.
The project launched on International Women’s Day with the mission to help women quit comparisons, love themselves and accept they are more than their shape, Gibbs wrote on Instagram.
“Whether you’re a size 6 or 16, above, below or in between, we believe you are unique and uniqueness is so beautiful in a world of so much similarity,” she said.
In the week since the first image was posted to the account, photos of the pair posing together in swimwear have racked up thousands of likes and encouraging comments. It’s movements like these, that feature women of different shapes and sizes co-existing in their uniqueness, that are crucial in moving inclusivity in fashion forward.
Gibbs and Wasley hope that their confidence and self-love will encourage others to follow suit.
“We’re here to show beauty in diversity, health in different forms,” Wasley captioned one of her photos. “We want you to embrace you.”
We can’t wait to see what’s next from these two.
