5 body positive crusaders to follow now on Instagram

Growing up plus size in the early 2000s, there was never much body diversity. In fact, there wasn’t anyone I could even relate to in media. This had a significant effect on my self-esteem, but I am happy to share that those days of feeling less than are gone!
