I wrote a post a couple of days ago about how we need to stop shaming women for celebrating their bodies. It’s here, if you want to read.
The way we feel about our bodies is such a personal thing isn’t it? And one person’s experience is never going to be the same as someone else’s. So far, on Instagram and here, I’ve mainly talked about my own experiences, as well as sharing other accounts I love and posts I love on the subject on my Instagram Stories. So I thought it might be cool to open up my little space to give other people the chance to share their own stories.
I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but it was a comment on my last post that really got me thinking. So every Tuesday, over on Instagram, I’m going to be offering my account for a takeover, for other people to share their own experiences, stories and ideas around the subject of body image, body confidence – whatever you want to call it.
You don’t have to be “body confident”. You don’t have to “love your body”. You don’t have to post pictures of yourself in your pants. You don’t have to be in Instagrammer or a body positive activist or ever have written about the subject anywhere else.
Each Tuesday there’ll be a new person taking over my Instagram Stories and appearing on my main grid. If you’d like to be one of those people then head over Instagram and slide into my DM’s!
