5 Beautiful Women Who Were Born Men

With gorgeous models on the cover of every magazine and TV programs like America’s Next Top Model, it’s no wonder that in today’s day and age, we all aspire to be as beautiful as they are. Some people love the skin they’re born in, and some people want to make a few adjustments to get the perfect body.

Of the latter, there are a few options available to you: change your diet, exercise more, go to the gym, opt for botox or elective surgery like breast augmentation… or if you’re a woman currently trapped in a man’s body, there are transgender surgery procedures and hormone replacement therapies that can help you attain the feminine curves you always believe you deserved.
