"Girls" Stars Rock Their Bods in Fierce #LonleyGirlsProject Photoshoot to Promote Positive Body-Image

WHO RUN THE WORLD?


As if I couldn't love HBO's #Girls anymore than I already do, stars Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke have partnered up with Lonely Lingerie to bring attention to their new campaign #LonleyGirlsProject. The campaign is to re-enforce positive body image and the girls displayed honest, raw, and untouched photographs of them in their lingerie.

I suffered with really horrible body image for the majority of my early twenties because I compared myself to the body I had back in high school. It took me years to finally accept that my body looks different now, and although I try to eat healthy for the benefit of my health, it's not the entire motivation for looking hot in a swimsuit.

Campaigns like these are showing girls everywhere that you don't need to conform to what society deems beautiful. ALL of us are beautiful and it's about damn time that we accepted that truth and learn to love ourselves. I think young girls, more than ever, need to have role models to look up to who demonstrate body confidence, and I LOVE that this #LonelyGirlsProject is paving the way for a new generation of girls who love their bodies, without feeling pressure to change them.

    I'm so happy to see Lena doing projects that show how all body shapes are beautiful. Hollywood has for the longest time made it unacceptable, or seemingly so, to not be perfect looking and it's time for films to more so reflect reality.

      I totally agree! By no means should we slam anyone whose skinny, and make the claim that if their rail thin they're "unattractive." That's furthest from the truth. But, I love how the new standard of beauty is simply accepting our bodies no matter what they look like. A woman's body is amazing and capable of doing so many extraordinary things. We should all work together to continue encouraging other women instead of making comparisons. All bodies are beautiful.
