    8 plus-size influencers share advice on loving and accepting your body

    The road to self-love can be a long and bumpy one, full of internal and external obstacles getting in the way of accepting ourselves. Living in a world where we are constantly told by the media and society what we should change or not like about our bodies, it’s hard not to get sucked in. Every day, we’re bombarded with overly Photoshopped pictures of unrealistic bodies on social media that leave many women feeling less than. But don’t get me wrong — social media isn’t all bad! Body-positive crusaders are taking a stand online to show that everyone is beautiful in her own way. We are seeing models like Denise Bidot start the body-positive No Wrong Way Movement , while my British sister Felicity Hayward fuels her cause, #selflovebringsbeauty , all the way from London. After going through my own self-love journey, I can tell you that it does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of work to change your mindset and start deconstructing the negative thoughts engrained in you and start recognizing the beauty in our differences. Loving your body is a choice that each individual must make on her own and happens when you stop comparing yourself with others. Cutting out your own negative self-talk can be one of the hardest and most important steps. An exercise that really helped me was positive mirror talk. Each morning I look in the mirror and say out loud five things that I love about my body. Like Instagram star Iskra Lawrence  says, the idea of this exercise is to point out the amazing things your body does for you and to be consistent. Keep telling yourself you are beautiful, even if at the time you don’t feel particularly pretty, and repeat until the feelings follow. Imagine how much we would all flourish and all the beauty we could create in the world if we could just start loving the marks and dips of our bodies instead of trying to change who we are. The world would be so boring if everyone looked the same! Diversity is what helps fuel creativity and keeps the world an interesting and inspiring place. To help you on your own self-love journey, I’ve enlisted eight major body-positive crusaders to share their top tips on how to love your body.

    7 plus size models of colour you should know about

    Plus size model, body activist and total babe Ashely Graham continues to break barriers. Graham, who was the first plus size model to grace the covers of Vogue and Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition , ecently added a  New York Magazine to her already impressive resume. But aside from absolutely slaying her 1940s-style shoot , Graham also openly discussed how white privilege has played a roll in her success as a plus size model. “I know I’m on this pedestal because of white privilege,” said  Graham in the feature. “To not see black or Latina women as famous in my industry is crazy! I have to talk about it. I want to give those women kudos because they are the ones who paved the way for me.” While we love Graham and her messages of body positivity and female empowerment, we’d also love to see more curvy women in the spotlight. So we’ve rounded up seven plus size models of colour that we think more people should know about. Click through the gallery to see more and let us know what you think by tweeting us @YahooStyleCA .

    #DiaARMy: These plus-sized ladies are starting a bare arms movement on Instagram

    Hot summer days conjures images of sleeveless sun dresses and airy tank tops for some, but for others, the heat means sweltering under cardigans and jean jackets. Stylist and community manager of plus-sized styling company Dia&Co , Ashby Vose, is only too familiar with the problem. The body positive brand, which offers a personal stylist service that sends clients packages of curated clothes in sizes 14 and up, gets plenty of requests from their plus-size clients for layers and jackets even in the summer. “We hear a lot from our customers and our community about creative ways to hide their arms,” Vose tells Allure . “It got us chatting. We talked about our own experiences with our arms and our preferences for layering up even though it’s hot… We had to do something to liberate our community and that arms are not a source of shame.” So to encourage women to stop hiding their arms, Dia & Co launched their #DiaARMy Instagram campaign, asking women to flaunt their biceps and triceps and embrace sleeveless styles. And the response is gorgeous! Check out the gallery above to see confident chicks killing it and let us know what you think by tweeting us @YahooStyleCA . “A little bare arms love.” (Photo: Instagram/styleofleslie) “Summer is here! Its crazy hot and humid, so why are you covering up ladies?! It’s too freaking hot for cardigans! I am joining the #DiaArmy in going sleeveless! Don’t cover up those puppies Tall Sisters! Be free and comfortable!” (Photo: Instagram/thetallsociety) “I’m joining my friends at @diaandco #diaarmy because it’s too damn hot out here to be covering up my arms. You don’t like my big arms then that’s your problem.” (Photo: Instagram/plusjones) “I’m showing off my arms as part of the @diaandco #DiaArmy ! Tag your bestie and challenge them to fight the stigma and show their arms in the summer! It’s hot. Let’s wear what feels good to us & forget whatever judgment someone else might have! If you like it, wear it!” (Photo: Instagram/readytostare)
