Instagram is constantly growing and we’re loving the barrage of #bodypositive, #loveyourcurves, and #effyourbeautystandards posts coming through lately! Here’s a quick round up of some of my fave Insta-bloggers that you should probably check out if you haven’t already:
Can I just take a minute to share that @thevagaggle and I have watched each other go through 10 years of eating disorders, crash diets, body hatred and hundreds of pounds lost and gained – and the first thing we said when we saw these pictures was ‘oh my god our belly rolls match HOW COOL IS THAT!’ Friends who bopo together stay together 💜💙💚🌈🌞
Always telling it like it is and never afraid to show us the downs as well as the ups, Megan’s bodyposipanda Instagram is one of our top faves.
For real and honest reviews on lingerie and clothing, you have to check out Caroline’s awesome Instagram at curvywordy.
I have spent so many years disliking my reflection, cringing at photographs, hiding my body under my clothes and I’m honestly so bored of it! Instead of spending every other week trying out a new diet fad, I am trying to just love the person I already am. The soft belly rolls from consuming delicious cake, the stretchmarks and scars from carrying my children. The wobbly boobs that have grown bigger & heavier as I’ve got older and therefore drooped a bit more with each year… all of these things just make me, well me and why the hell shouldn’t that be seen as beautiful?! So I’m joining @curvykate to pledge to make #mybodymybff and treat it the way it deserves ❤ Wearing Curvy Kate Ritzy from @brastop
A total bra guru, Linzi the Fairy Boob Mother is on hand to share her thoughts on different styles, and keeps it totally real in the process.
Same girl, same day, same time. 〰 With a camera angle and clothing I can change my body into something that society would deem more acceptable than the photo on the right. 〰 Recently insta was voted as the most damaging app to body image/self esteem. That’s not ok. 〰 The media constantly wants us to be more filtered, more posed, more flexed. Making us ashamed, afraid and resentful of our bodies, our natural vessel. 〰 We compare ourselves to these images of posed, strategically taken photos. Comparing yourself is a thief of your joy/self love and even more so when you’re comparing aesthetics to images that aren’t reality. 〰 Both these photos are beautiful . Both these photos are worthy. However only one of these photos is truly me, comfortable and naturally loving myself… 〰 Get rid of accounts that make you feel negative, get rid of people in your life that don’t make you feel happy, loved and beautiful. Don’t let an all ruin your life. 💜💛💜
The inspiring Melly is always open with her struggles over at selfloveclubb and shows us how different real life vs social media can be.
Smaller bodies are not healthier bodies 👋🏻 Fat bodies are not less healthy 👋🏻 Smaller bodies are not better or more deserving or worthy of love and attention 👋🏻 Fat bodies are not bad or ugly 👋🏻 Fat is not the worst thing you can be. You are not body positive if you openly discuss how your body will be better when it is smaller. If you wanna be a part of this community and use the hashtags, at least pretend to give a shit about the fat women who started this movement, and the people who read your message. Fuckin sick of this shit. 👋🏻 #bodypositive #bodyconfidence #fatacceptance #fatpositive #fatactivism #embracethesquish #celebratemysize #celebrateyourcellulite #healthisnotasize #beautybeyondsize
