Blogger's swimwear photos show true beauty of women
Congratulations to Belfast blogger Gemma-Louise Bond and former Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman for posting what could be described as candid photographs of how they look in swimwear.
They were not the usual celebrity-style images showing women in unattainable perfection, but instead appeared as how many women look. That takes courage.
Hopefully others will take confidence from them and realise that the endless promotion of stick-thin models or fashion styles which only look good on a hanger is just commerce, and nothing to do with any woman's real beauty - which is being comfortable in her own skin.
