A group of body-positive women came together to hold their third annual “Glitter Extravaganza” in Australia earlier this month, where they all took part in a photo shoot meant to celebrate their bodies. The gathering consisted of 15 women of all shapes and sizes, ranging in age from 19 to 36. They initially met on social media, and bonded over their shared love for lingerie—but it quickly led to something deeper.
