The definition of beauty is so diverse, differing from country to country and from culture to culture. And every country or culture may view certain body types as being more ideal than others or as the "perception of perfection."
But regardless of what each culture's perception of beauty and the female body is, there are women in each country who may not fit these standards, and yet are proving that one does not have to fit a culture's definition of the "ideal" body to still be stunning and inspirational.
Curvy women from around the world, who are bloggers, models, editors, writers and more, are helping redefine each of their country's beauty standards, and inspiring other women in the process. Follow these women on Instagram for a daily reminder of how diverse beauty really is.

Every woman, with no exceptions, deserves to feel comfortable in her own body, and to believe that the world is made just as much for her as the next person. That's why with "My Curves Have No Bounds," we're going to get real and talk about our bodies, what we put on them, and how we feel about everything in between. We want to break down the barriers and outdated notions that plus-size women encounter everyday. So check back every other week for more from "My Curves Have No Bounds," by Amanda Montgomery of Latest Wrinkle.
