14 Gorgeous Bodies You Never Thought You'd See on the Runway (PHOTOS)

Lingerie Fashion Week recently took place in New York City, and every single fashion designer today should take a lesson from the runways. In addition to the to-DIE-for lingerie, the designers featured an incredibly diverse range of models, from empowered breast cancer survivors to pregnant fembots, plus-size models, petite ladies, and female skateboarders. What I really love, though, is that all these women were mixed in with more traditional "model" types -- this wasn't an event for any ONE kind of body. Seriously people, why can't ALL runways be like this?

"Lingerie is not one-size-fits-all, and neither are the women who wear it -- on, and off, the runway!" says Lauren Rich, the founder of Lingerie Fashion Week. And when you look at these stunning photos, you'll see she really means it.

Click through the slideshow to see some of the best shots from the week -- if you're like me, you'll get a little teary seeing the exuberance, joy, and true beauty in all those different packages. Which one is your favorite?
