Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes: My Favorite Instagram Thick Girls To Follow

‘Don’t wait to hit your dream weight before you start living!’


I think for a long time, what was considered ‘beautiful’ was confined between the 4 corners of thinness. If she were truly ‘beautiful’, she had to have long legs, a BMI less than 25 and definitely no stretchmarks.

But that’s all changing. We are in a different era. An era where women with more plump body structures are being appreciated and celebrated, stretch marks and all.

At some point I looked at my Instagram and I felt like I was cheating myself. The IG posts I looked at day and night looked nothing like me. Gradually without realizing it, it affected my perception of myself.

I wanted a change, so I did something about it. I found inspirational women who owned their beautiful thick thighs, big arms and belly fat and it truly made me appreciate my body more.  Here are a couple of my favorites 😊.

  1. I particularly like the part about Tabria Majors. Be thick and exercise please. Cause just like the misinterpretation of the word ‘feminist’, some thick girls might think appreciating their thickness and not exercising to stay healthy is all part of self love. Obesity comes with a lot of health problems. Be thick and healthy. 💕
