In our increasingly body-positive world, there are a ton of awesome ladies to draw inspo from.
A few have been lucky enough to go mainstream, like Ashley Graham and Gabi Fresh, but there are still so many awesome ladies flying under the radar. So for all your bopo warriors out there looking for your daily inspiration, we’ve got you covered. Below are a few of our favorite Instagram accounts you may not have heard of, but are seriously about to obsess over.
IG Handle: @mynameisjessamyn
What’s Her Deal: Jessamyn is a badass yoga ninja who challenges the stereotype that yogis have to be stick-thin blondes. She posts pictures of totally crazy yoga poses that no normal human should be able to get into.
IG Handle: @beautynotsize
What’s Her Deal: Charlotte is a gorgeous German model living in Hamburg. Not only is her feed visual perfection, but her happiness and joy radiate through every photo. Warning: she may give you major FOMO.
IG Handle: @joannathangiah
What’s Her Deal: Joanna is a kickass artist who doesn’t pull her punches. She’s constantly posting hilarious and bopo drawings of women who refuse to conform to society’s beauty standards.
IG Handle: @bodyposipanda
What’s Her Deal: Megan is a recovering anorexic who has learned to embrace her body. In addition to selfies, she’s constantly adding hilarious body positive memes and drawings from around the web.
IG Handle: @fatgirlflow
What’s Her Deal: What makes Corinne’s feed is she seems to be the master of both street style pics and the artsy pic. She clearly takes pride in her body and just seeing her photos show up in our feed brings a smile to our face.
IG Handle: @nicolettemason
What’s Her Deal: Nicolette is a former contributing editor at Marie Claire and writes for Glamour, Teen Vogue, and Refinery29. So yeah, you can bet her style is seriously on-point.
IG Handle: @daniebb3
What’s Her Deal: Ok, ok, we realize you probably know who Danielle Brooks is (who hasn’t seen Orange is the New Black). But since becoming an ambassador for Lane Bryant, Danielle has seriously stepped up her body posi game and we couldn’t help but give her a shout-out.
IG Handle: @additionelle
What’s their Deal: In case you missed the memo, Addition Elle is a plus-size retailer with some seriously stylish clothes. Bonus: they have some of the top plus-size models in their campaigns including Ashley Graham and Jordyn Woods.
IG Handle: @body_lovee
What’s Their Deal: Body Lovee curates a collection of some of the best plus size fashion pics from Instagram. They make a point of including bodies of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
IG Handle: @barbienox
What’s Her Deal: Despite modeling for brands like Forever21 Plus and Outdoor Voices, Barbie has still managed to remain relatively unknown to the public. The upside of her low-key fame is that she gets to say whatever the heck she wants on instagram, and boy does she ever!
Lena Finkel is the Editor and Founder of Femestella. Prior to starting Femestella, she worked at People, InStyle, and Tiger Beat. Her favorite Housewife is Bethenny Frankel (by far!), but when she’s not watching RHONY, you can probably find her hanging with her kitty Tom or tweeting at Sen. Chuck Schumer.
