What's a B Belly?
So, what exactly is a B belly? Well, imagine turning sideways and noticing that your belly forms the shape of a "B." It's a natural occurrence that arises due to the distribution of body fat and muscle tone. And guess what? It's completely normal! But let's be real—it's not something we often see in mainstream media. That's why we're here to change the narrative and show the world we are here and we deserve to be represented.
