Caitlin Crosby and Brie Larson founded Love Your Flawz to give visitors the chance to celebrate their flaws instead of comparing themselves to the unfair standards of beauty set by the media and others. They say, “We all have insecurities about our imperfections, but we wanted to shift our perspectives from hating our flawz, to owning and loving them. This body is the only one you're going to have here on earth, so we may as well learn to embrace it... honor it... treat it with kindness and care. You're the only YOU that will ever exist, so we need to learn how to love ourselves now and not waste any more time! Love Your Flawz exists to remind you that you're not alone in this struggle. But with laughter and grace, we will overcome this together.”
