A body positive influencer has recreated a number of Meghan Markle’s looks from her recent royal tour of South Africa, to show the styles work for “women of all sizes”.

Katie Sturino, founder of size-inclusive blog The 12ish Style and creator of anti-chafing range Megababe Beauty, channelled the Duchess of Sussex’s looks as part of a series on her Instagram page, which she calls #Supersizethelook.

The series involves Sturino, who is also the author of ‘ToastHampton: How to Summer in Style’, recreating the looks of a famous person to show it can work on a different body type.

According to her blog’s About page, Sturino is a US size 12 – which is size 16 in the UK (the average clothes size for a British woman, according to YouGov).
