In my last post, I shared 3 realisations that will make you feel body confident AF. One of which being how important it is to surround yourself with positivity. Since hitting publish several people have reached out on social media to share how much they appreciated the post, so… I thought I would follow it up with a quick round-up of some of the most body confident mega babes that you need to follow.
So (apparently) summer is just around the corner, therefore, it’s the perfect time for a reminder that everybody is beach ready. Regardless of what you may have trained yourself to believe previously, I can tell you with 100% confidence that you are gorgeous as you are. If you’re having trouble believing me, maybe hearing it from these amazing women will help you see it’s true.
But before we get into it, while I’m not quite conceited enough to put myself on this list, it goes without saying that if you aren’t already then you should probably follow me on Instagram too.
Body Confident Mega Babes That You Need to Follow.
In a sea of images portraying unrealistically perfect models and over-filtered selfies, we could all do with a bit more REAL on our Instagram feed. Luckily, there are a ton of amazing women that fill that need. Posting photos that proudly display their so-called “flaws” and challenge the current beauty standards in a big way.
To get you started, or maybe add to your current selection of mega babes, here are just a few Instagram pages you’re gonna wanna follow…
Learning to connect to my body, appreciate it and utilise all the amazing things it can do is very much a journey. I wish the fitness industry was morehonest, inclusive and authentic so that marginalised people and people outside of the ‘norm’, are welcomed with open arms. Maybe then people of all shapes andsizes would feel safe and confident to exercise 🙌🏽😌 Shop my @nikewomen plus size training outfit by clicking the link in my bio 📸 by @jkgphotography http://liketk.it/2vy4A #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKeurope #LTKcurves
So grateful. So humbled. So incredibly happy that I get to live life and experience what the universe has to offer. I feel so safe, so grounded, so loved. ✨ I can’t believe I used to exist trying with all my might to not be me. I am wonderful & I will never EVER stop believing that 🌻 I owe myself so many apologies & I will commit the rest of my life to making up for lost time. 📸 by @jkgphotography ✨ #healgrowglow
File this one under “Things to Keep Reminding Myself Over and Over Until it Breaks Through” – You do not exist to be visually appealing to other people. Your purpose in life will always be more than pretty. You are worthy of your space in the world however you show up in your body. Okay? Okay. Read it again. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 Quote from fandomsandfeminism on Tumblr, adapted from an original quote by Erin McKean 🌸 Edit by @dothehotpants ✨
I’m sure you’ll find these girls as inspirational as I do. Diversifying your Instagram feed may seem like a small change but it’s honestly been the thing that has made the biggest difference in my life over the past year. A little bit of variety will go a long way toward breaking down the unrealistic beauty standards that we often feel held to.
I’d love to hear your recommendations on who to follow too. Let me know in the comments
