“Being in the fashion space made me realise the amount of teamwork that goes into creating the ‘perfect body’ of celebrities and models. It's important to see through the manufactured ideals in the media."

“We’ve had our ups and downs, but my body and I have become good friends now ... I may not be the ‘perfect’ size, but I have strong limbs, soft curves, a sharp mind.”

“I’m pretty darn proud of my curves ... I love my bum and my legs, and I’m not afraid to show them off. I know who I am, and I embrace my body the way it is!”

Cosmopolitan India stylist Samar Rajput told BuzzFeed: "The feature is centred around body positivity. For a long time now, a 'body ideal' has dominated the thought processes of women around the world, and it's about time it was highlighted that beauty doesn't conform to any boundaries and statistics."
