There is NO difference. All bodies, regardless of: color, shape, mass, or height, are beautiful! Your worth is not determined by your waist size, ladies. You’re more than a number. You’re more than the unrealistic standards society holds you to. You are beautiful, wonderful, and brilliant just as you are. Never forget that.
