New Website Allows Real Women to Anonymously Post Photos of Their Real Bodies


My Body Gallery allows chicks to post images of themselves on any old day, wearing any old thing, and put a black square over their face so we don't know who they are. The goal of this, the site says, is to help women see themselves for what they are. "A recent study found that 95% of non-eating disordered women overestimate the size of their hips by 16% and their waists by 25%, yet the same women were able to correctly estimate the width of a box," the site explains. "Two out of five women and one out of five men would trade three to five years of their life to achieve their weight goals." After you upload your photo you can classify your shape as a banana, apple, pear, or hourglass. At the time of publication, no photos came up when we entered typically model-size proportions — 5' 10" tall, 120 pounds, "banana," pant size 2, shirt size XS — in the search fields.
