A blogger has posted a naked photo on Instagram to send a message of body positivity and to encourage people to love your body “no matter what it looks like”.

Grace Victory – a 26-year old YouTube blogger from Buckinghamshire – poses naked with a towel partially covering her body, alongside an inspiring caption in which she recalls the cruel words that were said to her as a child.

More rolls than a bakery,” she starts. “I remember d*ckheads at school saying that to me when I was a size 12”. 

Grace also revealed to her 141,000 followers that she struggled with an eating disorder at that age, but luckily, she’s now in full recovery.

“Now I’m in recovery and loving my body no matter what it looks like, as long as I’m healing and well and fucking living my best life – that’s all that matters.”

The post has had over 17,000 likes so far, and her followers have been sharing their support.

One wrote: “I wish more posts like this were around when I was in hs because I too struggled so hard with my body image especially because I was the big girl but thank you I appreciate you.”

Another said: “Keep doing you and representing for the females and showing everyone beauty comes in different colours shapes and sizes”.

Hear, hear to that!
