Women’s bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and there is no ideal shape or size. The ideal size and weight for one woman might not make sense for her best friend. Some women are naturally curvier than other women. Some women are naturally more slender. Some women are shorter or taller. The list of differences goes on and on.

Denise Mercedes and Maria Castellanos are friends who are far from the same size. They are both gorgeous, but their body types are completely different. Denise rocks her curves. Maria is taller and thinner. 

The two friends came up with a clever idea that we find fun and helpful. They have been showing just how different the exact same outfit can look on two people with different body types. On their Instagram page, they have been posting pictures and videos where they are standing next to each other (and sometimes dancing) while wearing the exact same outfit.

Honestly, we wish more fashion brands would post photos like this in their advertising. It would be very helpful to see someone with a similar body type to our own wearing the clothes we are thinking about buying instead of just seeing pictures of skinny models all the time.

Their followers are loving the side by side photos. One person wrote, “Okay but can every fashion designer out there watch these videos you do so that they stop making “plus size” clothing totally opposite of what’s fashionable or totally opposite of their “straight size” designs…..clearly designs can be made in anyyyy size.”

Another comment reads, “Can I just say that these videos are brilliant.. as someone who hasn’t really accepted they’ve gained some weight I get really upset with ordering stuff and then it doesn’t look like that on me, these videos are how ALL clothes should be advertised like this.”

Scroll down for some of examples of our favorite photos of these two friends.
