Over here at R29, we're all about celebrating every body type
(and helping you to flattering yours
, to boot). We're not ones to play favorites with soccer legs, Botticelli curves, ballerina bods, or anything else, really.
BUT, that's not to say we don't appreciate it when others take a moment to shout out what they love about their own shape. And, that's precisely what Becky Murphy
does in her out-on-Tuesday book,
I'd Rather Be Short
. It's an illustrated love letter to petite ladies, calling out 100 reasons to celebrate your height (or lack thereof). Pretty empowering. And, chock-full of charming illustrations, it's pretty adorable, too. Click on through for a few of our favorite reasons (although, the inability to outgrow a tree house or a twin-size bed are pretty appealing, too).
Then, take to the comments with your own additions for why you'd rather be short...or tall...or somewhere in between.
