MyBodyGallery.com Launches User-Friendly Responsive Design

Community Members Can Now Browse and Upload Images Easily on Mobile Devices

Body-positivity website MyBodyGallery.com has launched a new responsive-design version of our website for our mobile-device users. Community members, especially those with smart phones, can now more easily browse and contribute their pictures to our gallery of images that enable people to see what they really look like, rather than a view distorted by unhealthy messages from advertising and the media. Nearly 30,000 images have been uploaded since the site launched in 2010. Our community of almost 62,000 registered users can now more conveniently review inspirational images and add to our ever-growing collection of diverse pictures.

 

As always, users have the option of anomyzing their images to protect their privacy. All of the usual website features, such as our popular Body Stories series and the “Guess the Weight” quiz are accessible from mobile devices. If users prefer the desktop view, they can select that at the bottom of the page. One helpful addition to the revamped website is a short list of guidelines for image approvals integrated into the uploader tool.

By enabling people to objectively see what real bodies look like, MyBodyGallery.com promotes body positivity, nurtures acceptance of the fact that we are all beautiful, and offers community. Through browsing images of “real bodies” crowdsourced by everyday people, visitors to the website can help heal the damage caused to body image by media perpetuations of body shapes and sizes that are unrealistic for most people.

Here’s a sampling of screenshots of our new responsive version on a smart phone:

My Body Stories Proud and Healthy For My Children
I'm currently 33 years old--I'm 5'8 and 143 lbs. I have struggled it seems with weight since I was about 8 years old. At 12 I started dieting, and everyone telling me how beautiful I looked boosted my confidence.  Unfortunately, I didn't have anyone guiding me the right way with this diet, and by 14 years old I dropped down to 86lbs. After that I wasn't allowed to see the # on the scale.  I know I was at 80lbs when I over heard my mom taking to my Aunt on the phone. My weight went up and down my teenage years.
Hoping for Empowerment
All my adult life I've been 5'7" and weighed between 125-130 lbs. I have a small frame but had enormous breasts. I hated them. I took being slender for granted as I never dieted, ate whatever I wanted and never really had a "formal" workout plan, though I was active and I'm not a snacker. In 1994, right after I had my second child (I had gained about 30 lbs. with him and was almost down to my pre-pregnancy weight), I found out my husband of 8 years was having an affair. We divorced soon after and due to stress, I weighed in at 115 lbs. and wore a size 4. I stayed at that weight for about 4 years when I married my dear husband and had 2 more children. My weight crept up to 130 lbs., which is still well within acceptable for my height. Due to stretch marks and my giant breasts, I didn't dare wear any revealing clothing and felt quite self conscious about my body.

News MBG, A Woman Owned and Operated Start–Up
In 2010, Odessa Cozzolino had a vision—what if women could band together to produce a crowd-sourced database of images of female bodies unmanipulated by media forces? She wondered: would it be possible to create a safe, online space where women could browse pictures that their peers took of themselves to gain an empowering assessment of the wide variety of bodies out there in the world?
