In this day and age, our generation is so obsessed with losing weight and being sexy. We don't realize it sometimes, but body shaming is more common than you think. With comments like, "Maganda naman siya sana if she would lose weight" or "You're too thin," body shaming can come in different forms and it can happen to anyone at any size, too. At the Avon event last May 11, four women took turns in delivering monologues to share how they feel about body stereotypes and how they have come to discover what being sexy is all about. Here are some ways to own up to your own version of sexy.

Being confident is the new sexy.

The true measure of beauty is how much we own our body. We are all built in different ways and shapes and there is no one definition of sexy. There should be no one body that we should aim for because at the end of the day, what makes us different is what makes us sexy.

How about you? What's your definition of sexy?
