Women, Compare Your Body
A new website shows how your body compares to those of other women.
My Body Gallery is a searchable database full of user-uploaded photos, tagged with their self-described height, weight, body type, pant size and shirt size.
You put in your stats and get to see women with the same ones. The goal, according to the founders, is to “to help women objectively see what we look like and come to some acceptance that we are all beautiful.”
The site’s founders said that women have skewed senses of their bodies, explaining, “95 percent of non-eating disordered women overestimate the size of their hips by 16 percent and their waists by 25 percent, yet the same women were able to correctly estimate the width of a box.
In a world full of images of how we ‘should’ look it can get difficult to tell how we DO look.”
