Australian model Kate Wasley believes that health comes in all shapes and sizes. Body-positive activist and curve model not only inspires us by tackling body-shaming towards all women, but earned herself a coveted spot in Sports Illustrated’s 2018 Swimsuit Issue.
Along with fellow model Georgia Gibbs, they have created instagram @any.body_co, and are using social media to spread their distinct message: You are more than your dress size. The Aussie beauties are best friends in the same industry but with one clear difference: Georgia is a six and Kate a size 16.
