THE BODY ISSUE: SPECIAL EDITION

Who

This week's WHO

This year, actress Jessica Marais, plus-sized model Robyn Lawley and six-months-pregnant Kyly Clarke strip down and bare all for our exclusive WHO cover shoot. They join a host of additional stars, also shot exclusively for WHO, to talk about their bodies now and how they’ve learnt to accept them in all their changing and flawed glory. Says The Real Housewives of Melbourne’s Chyka Keebaugh: “At some point, you just have to like yourself. Otherwise it does your head in.”

PLUS

The Body Survey: WHO asked readers what they really think about their boobs, bums, Botox, bikinis and more, and the results are revealing –– 46% of women say Jessica Alba has the ultimate celebrity body; 58% say the cosmetic procedure they’d most likely consider is a tummy tuck; and 63% of respondents put pressure on themselves to lose weight or stay slim.
