Charlotte (21) has suffered from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome since she was 13. It’s a group of inherited disorders affecting various parts of the body, including the skin, joints and blood vessels. “I bruise easily, I get dizzy and have chronic fatigue and headaches,” she explains on Instagram. The condition wreaked havoc on her digestive system. So much so that a few years ago Charlotte elected to undergo an ileostomy (surgery to bypass the rectum, colon and anus) and now wears a bag for waste removal. “It may not sound so glamorous but this has saved so many lives and improved the quality of many others,” she says. For Charlotte, standing in a bra and underwear with her ileostomy bag clearly visible was her way of showing support for all kinds of bodies. “It’s doesn’t matter what you look like, you deserve to be represented,” she says.
