We live in an age where our phones reign supreme and social media heavily influences the way we look at others and ourselves. With society constantly telling us what we should look like and how we should feel about our bodies, Instagram has emerged as a huge platform to promote the powerful message of body positivity.
Scrolling through a sea of overly Facetuned selfies and waist trainers, it’s easy to feel like we have to keep up with unrealistic ideals of beauty. As a plus-size, body positive fashionista myself, it is so refreshing to see fellow crusaders who actually wholeheartedly embrace their differences and promote the importance of body acceptance to the masses. The body positive movement comes in all different shapes, sizes, colors, ages, and genders. All being equally beautiful in their own unique way, these Instagrammers will inspire by bombarding your feed with their necessary affirming attitudes and radical acts of self-love.
