Georgia Gibbs and Kate Wasley were just two fun-loving friends going out for a dance on a Saturday night. 21-year-old Georgia, as many of us do, posted a pic of the pair on Insta. But what happened next blew them away.
They were appalled at the reaction they received from their followers. One of the comments really struck home for the pair "You have photoshopped yourself thinner or your friend bigger, what kind of friend are you?"
Instead of letting it get them down Kate and Georgia, Australian-based models, who are size six and 16 respectively, silenced haters with this powerful response. The pair have gotten body positive and we couldn't be prouder!
The besties launched their Instagram page @any.body_co just over one week ago and have gone viral! Growing over 40 thousand followers and an influx of body positive comments and messages. The pair decided to create the Instagram with their aim being to spread the word to women that:
"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."
"We aim to quit the comparisons, believe in loving yourself and accept you are so much more than just your body shape."
The longtime besties have been inundated with body positive comments and messages. These girls are truly inspirational – keep empowering other women.
