Twenty-eight stunning women of color from Florida A&M University’s Delta Sigma Theta Sorority traveled to Costa Rica.

The sorority sisters posed in nude-colored bathing suits to show that women of all colors can be comfortable and beautiful in their own skin.

The message of the classy natural-themed shoot is simple: every woman, no matter shape, size or skin tone, is beautiful.

The women reconnected over the three-day trip with plenty of adventurous activities including zip-lining and horseback riding.

The sisters, now a collection of successful business women, entrepreneurs, mothers, wives – were also sure to make time to relax.
