Women's Legs in All Their Shapes & Sizes Are Something to Celebrate (PHOTOS)

legsWomen's legs come in all shapes and sizes. Rather than beating ourselves up that we haven't achieved thigh gap or the gams of a waifish supermodel, one photographer is inviting the world to celebrate our pins in all their shapely splendor. New York Times associate photo editor Stacey Baker has put together a fascinating look at the vast variety of women's legs under the hashtag #Citilegs.

When you look at these, many thoughts will probably go through your head, like, "Wow, those legs look just like mine!" or "Hmmm, where on Earth did she find those pants?"

But Baker, who will release a book of her collected photos this fall, explained her inspiration to The Huffington Post: 

I'd always wanted long, model thin legs, like Christy Turlington. But my favorite photographs in this project are pictures of legs that have curves -- I think some of them look like sculptures. And that's been good for me to see.

Take a look at the interesting sets she shot:
