Plus-size women from different age groups strode the ramp at this show. 

Touted as the first-of-its-kind lingerie show in India, the collection had something in store for everyone.

These models wanted to send out just one message: It is time to celebrate inclusivity.

A huge round of applause for these beautiful women.

The showstopper for the evening was Zareen Khan, who walked the ramp in black separates.

'Lingerie is not one-size-fits-all, and neither are the women who wear it both on and off the runway,' said the actor at the show.

Backstage there was not a single stressed or unhappy face. Models had a smile on their faces even as they were getting ready. 

The show was an opportunity for plus-size models to showcase their confidence and style.

A pre-make up selfie is a must.
