If you thought getting through the day on your period was a challenge, try to imagine doing it without legs. Proving that her moto "no legs, no limits" is completely true, Kanya Sesser is the new face of the PantyPop campaign. And this is way more than just your typical shoot. The legless model is giving a glimpse into her everyday life to show that nothing can get in the way of mastering life's daily moments.
Born without legs and abandoned on the steps of a Buddhist temple in Thailand, Sesser is going against societal and beauty norms to prove that nothing can get in the way of achieving your dreams. At just 15 years old, she started her modeling career and now she's teamed up with PantyPop, a company that makes underwear designed to hold pads and liners in place, to inspire others to master their day, no matter what's in store.
The gorgeous photo series shows Sesser going about her normal daily activities — brushing her teeth, reading a book, and taking a nap — showing that with right tools, you can get through any day. After seeing the Everyday (Un)Altered photo series, you won't let anything slow you down.
Shot by Robert Parrish, the series might be highlighting the underwear, but it's hard to ignore the empowering woman in the photos. Sesser started her modeling career with Billabong and now the 23-year-old is killing it with her very first campaign. She surfs, skates, and isn't letting anything hold her back.
"I'm different and that is sexy, I don't need legs to feel sexy... I love showing people what beauty can look like," Sesser told Cosmopolitan.
Uhm, yaaaas! It doesn't get any more inspiring than this.
What better way to empower others than teaming up with a product that's around to make people's lives easier? PantyPop underwear ranges from $28 to $32 and is all about keeping you comfortable and ready to take on the day, and I can't think of anyone better to convey that.
“Whatever challenges life hands you, from starting your period at an inopportune moment to living life with a physical difference, we hope these images will inspire women to master their day (un)altered; with courage, humor and confidence," says PantyProp Founder Crystal Etienne.
It doesn't get much more empowering than this.
