HERE 👏 FOR 👏 THIS 👏

In a glorious step forward for model diversity, online retailer ASOS just included a model with back rolls on their website. And the internet is, understandably, fkn STOKED.

It all started when body positive influencer, Callie Thorpe, shared the studio shot of the model wearing a red dress on her Twitter with the caption: "Look at this gorgeous model and her cute back rolls just out here to show women that their bodies are normal and that real life isn't photoshopped and filtered @ASOS".

The model in question is Natalia Lorenzo, a Colombian model, who's living and working in London.

Naturally, Twitter is having a moment over the step towards a more inclusive fashion industry, and their tweets say it all:

"Every time I see a roll on a model it's like YAS QUEEN YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE AND I WORSHIP YOU which is a fairly normal response I feel," one user writes.

Preach it, girl!

"This is absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for doing and also showing this. In my opinion, the 'beauty ideal' is not real. It would be so dull and boring if we all conformed to society and therefore looked/dressed the same as each other. X" says another.

One user identified with the model and exclaimed, "OHHH YEAH THATS MEEEEEE✨💓✨".

In short, this model is hella relatable and we're here for this body confidence.

The move comes just over a month after ASOS was praised for featuring curvy model Vivian Eyo-Ephraim in one of their latest swim shoots, prompting a similar reaction online:

Here's hoping other fashion brands start listening to what people want, and that model diversity stops being something so rare that makes it headlines and just becomes the norm.
