Breasts are catalysts for discussing intimate aspects of women’s lives, such as growing up, sexuality, motherhood, breastfeeding, relationships, body image, health, cancer and ageing. women bare all, bravely sharing un-airbrushed photographs of their breasts alongside intensely personal stories about their breasts, bodies and lives. A hundred women have bared their breasts and their souls as part of a project to further understanding of how women really feel about their breasts, and how they really look. I think the time has never been better to hear how women really feel about their breasts, and to see how they really look.

We meet, young, old, deformed, trans and without a doubt 100 of the most beautiful women I have read about. I am in the non-breastfed demographic so that could explain my fascination with all things female (chests) or perhaps I just like what I do not have. I'm now reading the sequel, 'Manhood' which I thought I'd maybe learn less from as it was my own gender talking but it's proving quite the opposite.

It gave me insight into women's changing relationships with their own bodies, in particular - the transformative power of breastfeeding! Laura Dodsworth is an author, journalist, photographer and commentator and has been described as a ‘latter-day punchy Cassandra’ and a ‘Slayer of Taboos’. Her previous books 'Bare Reality: 100 women, their breasts, their stories', 'Manhood: The Bare Reality' and 'Womanhood: The Bare Reality' attracted worldwide media coverage and excellent reviews. They are telling fascinating stories of their lives, prompted by an intimate encounter with an obviously talented and sensitive photographer who gives them the freedom to do so. They talk about their boobs but really, they are just an extension of these wonderful, warm and funny individuals.

I got led to this book after reading The Guardian's excerpts from Laura Dodsworth's upcoming book Manhood.We hope this work will become a powerful force for social change by encouraging more women to speak freely about their breasts and inspiring them to find out more about breast cancer and the wide range of risk factors associated with the disease. Each story provides a beautifully tender insight into the diversity of our emotions about our breasts throughout life's stages and experiences.

Culturally and personally, no body part inspires love and hate, fear and lust, worship and desecration in the same way. She is the author of the two instant Sunday Times Bestsellers, 'Free Your Mind: The new world of manipulation and how to resist it' (2023) and 'A State of Fear: How the UK government weaponised fear during the Covid-19 pandemic’ (2021).For the first time, 100 brave and beautiful women reveal their bodies and stories on their own terms, talking about how they feel about pleasure, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause, gender, sexuality and simply being a woman. Women from all walks of life took part, aged from 19 to 101, sized AAA to K, from Buddhist nun to burlesque dancer.

It celebrates the diversity of women’s bodies, and refocuses us to the stories that our bodies can tell and the value they hold, rather than the various ways they can be judged.I also learnt more about the power of other woman's perceptions on women's decisions about how they might dress and behave, and a closer view on being in a relationship with a man, from a woman's point of view. The Bare Reality series has been featured and reviewed in The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Sun, The Mirror, The Independent, The Evening Standard, Metro, i paper, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Grazia, Stylist, DIVA, Gay Times, Huff Post, BBC World, ITV’s Loose Women, BBC Womans Hour, BBC Radio London, BBC London News, Channel 5 News, Radio 5 Live, Talk Radio, LBC, and many international newspapers, magazines, radio and television programmes. Your usual photography book is all about the photographer either showing off their technical skills or is self promotion.
