Sometimes, when I'm in the locker room at my local gym, I can't help but notice things. I try and either keep my eyes to the floor when passing a fellow nude female or make a scant amount of eye contact and half-smile, but often I can't help but see the shape of their body. Their so, so real body, with the 'imperfections' and soft belly.

This! my overactive blogger voice wants to shout to my imaginary audience with an intense wave of my arm in the unsuspecting lady's direction. This is us! This is what we really look like. But of course I don't, because that'd be weird.

However, a woman by the name of Laura Dodsworth has figured out a way to make a look at real bodies -- specifically breasts -- a reality. Take a look at a video for her Kickstarter campaign, which aims to raise funds to turn the London resident's photography project into a book:

As Laura explains it, Bare Reality: 100 women and their breasts "is a project which explores how women feel about their breasts. 100 women bare all, bravely sharing un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside personal stories about their breasts and their lives."

"We see images of breasts everywhere," the 41-year-old photographer explained, "but they're unreal. They create an unflattering comparison but also an unobtainable ideal. I wanted to rehumanize women through honest photography."

Her project, which has surpassed its initial fundraising goal, is a thing of beauty and familiarity in my eyes. That big, slightly saggy pair there, with the larger-than-typically-acceptable-in-films nipples? Yep. I've got a set just like them that have served my two babes and I well.

When Laura showed the 100 images she's collected to her husband, he responded by saying, "But they just don't look like the magazines." It's hard to imagine he could have come up with better a compliment on her work.

Check out brave moms who've shared photos of their post-baby breasts over at BabyCentre UK.
