The word “sexy” can be empowering and encouraging, and, well, sexy. But as Instagrammer Megan Jayne Crabbe (you might know her as @bodyposipanda) points out, the word can also have a dangerously narrow definition. For years, Crabbe says she believed that sexy meant being thin, flattering, and wearing outfits that “emphasise the ‘right’ places and hide the ‘wrong’ ones.”
With two photos—one in traditionally sexy lingerie and the other in everyday underwear—Crabbe proves that we can play by our own rules when we’re trying to look and feel sexy. It’s all about finding joy and confidence in rockin’ whatcha got.
