4 Kick-Ass Body Positive Instagrammers You Should Follow



The Body Positivity (BoPo) community encourages everyone – regardless of age, sexual orientation or gender – to embrace their own uniqueness and individuality. What’s not to love? Want to find out more? Here are four seriously kick-ass BoPo activists we think everyone should know about…


1. Charli Howard


Charli Howard doesn’t take inequality lightly. After being dropped by her former model agency for being not being thin enough (she was a UK size 6/8 at the time) Charli went on to launch the All Woman Project, a movement dedicated to redefining the fashion industry’s portrayal of beauty. “Beauty is everywhere, and while the industry is on its way to representing more diversity, a lot more can and should be done,” says Charlie. We agree! Charli, you rock.


2. Megan Jayne Crabbe


Body-positive babe Megan is an anorexia conqueror, blogger and author. She recently released her first book, Body Positive Power: How to stop dieting, make peace with your body and live. “We’re more than bodies. We should love our bodies, but we should also know that we are more than them,” she explains. Megan, we love you. 


3. Troy Soloman


The body-positive conversation isn’t a female-only dialog. Troy Soloman is a leading voice in the growing male body-positivity movement.  “Having a negative body image isn’t something that people are born with,” says Solomon, “it’s a learned behaviour. The body-positivity movement is helping people unlearn that behaviour.” If you love self-love, fashion, bold colours and unicorns, check out Troy’s Instagram – you won’t be disappointed. 


4. Denise Bidot


Mother, model and BoPo activist Denise Bidot founded the No Wrong Way movement last year to inspire people to understand that there truly is ‘No Wrong Way’ be you. “My movement is all about inspiring others to love themselves exactly as they are because our differences are what make us perfect,” says Bidot. “If we are sincerely ourselves without apology, there’s no way we can go wrong." We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves Denise. You’re a goddess.
