Last week, we invited you to share photos of your real-life shame-free beach bodies -- and you RESPONDED. Over a hundred of you! The resulting gallery is a mesmerizing and fearless collection of diverse bodies, and we’ve all been overwhelmed and amazed by your generous willingness to put yourselves out there, and the personal thoughts many of you shared on the experience.

Jane’s invitation to magazine editors to participate also resulted in a variety of responses, the majority overwhelmingly positive, even from those who weren't on board with participating themselves -- as one editor said, the project has "my full (and fully-clothed) support." Betty Wong, Editor-in-Chief of Fitness, and Vanessa Bush, Editor-in-Chief of Essence, were two editors who jumped on board right away.

If you still want to participate, it’s not too late. Send your beach body photos to beachbodies@xojane.com, and let's keep this conversation going.
