Loose Women -MyBodyMyStory

ITV’s Loose Women have taken a photo wearing swimwear in support of the #MyBodyMyStory  campaign.

The un-airbrushed, unfiltered photograph, taken by singer-songwriter and photographer Bryan Adams, can be seen on billboards around the country. The stated objective behind the image is to encourage women to love their bodies and accept their flaws, whatever their age or size.

Commenting on the project Bryan Adams said: “It was a funny thing to get a call and be asked to do this… and what I thought was interesting about the brief was, they wanna be natural, they don't want any retouching, and they want it to be real, and I thought, ‘Ok! that sounds really good!’ So the fact that all of the women were all being really honest about how they are, I thought, ‘Well that's great.’”

Comments from some of the Loose Women featured in the photograph include:

Host Andrea McLean: “I hope people see the pictures for what they are; real women, not edited or airbrushed, letting their body tell their story. Since the shoot my confidence has really increased.”

Nadia Sawalha: “I have wasted more time than I can to think of over my body issues. I’ve always hated being naked. I felt quite panic stricken at the thought of getting my body out in front of myself never mind a rock god! Stepping into the studio in my bra and pants was beyond cringe. There I was stretch marks, cellulite and all the battle scars of life for all to see with the knowledge that there would be zero airbrushing.”

Janet Street-Porter spoke of her part in the pictures. She explained: “It’s really important to do this campaign because I want women all over Britain to learn to love their body. Our bodies are brilliant – it’s your weapon!”

Coleen Nolan revealed: “I hope other women with body shapes like mine feel they can also be proud of themselves - there's no perfect person in the world - we all come in different ages, shapes and sizes and life is too short to spend it hating yourself because you not a size 8 or 21 anymore.”
