Tap Into Body-Positive Cam Lovin’

My name is Macy Kennedy and I have been a sex worker for six years. Body positivity in our industry and community is something I had the pleasure of touching on when I went to the ManyVids loft with three loft sisters for a week.

Camming Is a Body-Positive Mirror

Discovering yourself as a woman has never been as hard as it is now. A lot of people would disagree and would say that this is the era of the female, that it’s one of the first periods in time that women are empowered and that can be right, in a way.

This Body-Positive Campaign Is Empowering Women To #DropTheTowel

 

A new campaign is reminding women to show off their beautiful beach bodies and #DropTheTowel. 

Created by Wear Your Voice Magazine, the #DropTheTowel campaign features women of all shapes, sizes and colors to remind women that every body is beautiful and should never be hidden. 

“This is a movement for all shapes, sizes, colors, disabilities and genders to proudly proclaim that they are done hiding their already beautiful summer body — and are ready to lose that cover-up and drop the towel,” Monica Cadena, senior editor for Wear Your Voice magazine, told The Huffington Post. 

The campaign features images of ten women quite literally throwing their towels in the air to reveal their beautiful bikini bodies underneath. 

Founder and Editor-in-chief of Wear Your Voice, Ravneet Vohra told The Huffington Post that the campaign is trying to inspire freedom of body expression by ”shaking up the classic definition of what we have been lead to believe is the perfect beach-ready bikini-clad body.” By depicting more realistic body types than those seen in magazines, advertisements and pop-culture, Vohra hopes the campaign will “inspire and evoke a deeper thought about what a perfect body is.”

“I think we as a society have to ask ourselves this — What exactly is a ‘bikini body’ and what are we doing to perpetuate the crisis we face around the false imagery we and our younger generation are subjected to,” Vohra said. ”Is there room for change and growth as a society? Yes there is!”

The images show each woman comfortable in her own skin and happily stripping off her beach towel. The campaign is just further proof that to have a beautiful bikini body all you need is a bikini and a body

Teen’s Body-Positive Selfie Proves Her Rare Disorder Doesn’t Define Her

 Isa-Bella Leclair isn’t letting let her medical condition get in the way of body love. 

Nineteen-year-old Leclair suffers from Parkes Weber Syndrome, a vascular disorder that can cause “port-wine” stains, heart issues, and vascular swelling. The disease has caused her right leg to swell up to almost 40 pounds — but that doesn’t stop her from snowboarding, competing in beauty pageants and taking pictures in a bikini.   

“My condition doesn’t define me and no way I will let it stop me from wearing a cute swimsuit or a cute dress,” Leclair told blogger Alexa from The Lymphie Life. “I don’t fit in skinny jeans or fancy shoes so I have to find alternatives, but I always end up still feeling good about my body.”

 Leclair said that she is used to curiosity about her leg and her other health issues, and wants to educate other people about her condition. Now that her selfie is going viral, she can share her empowering message of body love worldwide. 

“For me, confidence is the most important part, because when people see someone confident in their body — even with a handicap — they don’t have pity but instead admiration, and that’s when you have the chance to be a good influence and change the standards of beauty,” she told The Lymphie Life.

Preach, girl.

Target Takes A Body-Positive Approach To Swimwear This Summer

Every body is a bikini body, this is true. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that one bikini fits all.

Thanks to the new “Target Loves Every Body” campaign, featuring four women of all different shapes and sizes, it’s clearer than ever than when it comes to bathing suit shopping, we’re all in the same boat.

While the ad is informative — triangle shaped tops are good for creating curves, high-waisted bottoms that sit at your natural waist are good for supporting your tummy — the reason it’s so great is that it’s actually representative of real women, with real insecurities.

Stylist and fashion journalist Zanna Roberts Rassi along with Chantè Burkett, Nashelly Messina, Sarah Boyd and Nikki Minton chat about what they love most about their bodies and their biggest problem areas before each of them find the right suit.

In creating the video, Target is telling customers that they can and should feel good about wearing a bathing suit. Any bathing suit.

“I’m so happy I had the opportunity to showcase my body in a swimsuit for the girls who look just like me,” Burkett, creator of the blog Everything Curvy And Chic told The Huffington Post. “Campaigns like this are so important because girls and women need to see others embracing their bodies in ads no matter what size they are.”

Target’s relationship with its customers, specifically plus-size consumers, has certainly come a long way, thanks in part to working with influencers in the community and creating campaigns like this.

Trisha Paytas’ Fierce Body-Positive Anthem Reclaims The Term ‘Fat Chicks’

“All my fat chicks where you at?”

That’s what author and body-positive vlogger Trisha Paytas asks in her new song and music video “Fat Chicks.” The video shows just how empowering life can be as a fat woman.

“All my fat chicks where you at? Now drop it low and shake that fat,” Paytas sings in the catchy chorus.

The 27-year-old preaches body-positivity throughout the entire song. Towards the middle of the video, Paytas slows the tempo and talks about why she embraces the label “fat.”

“Now I know, I know. Fat is a word used to negatively bring down the girls with a little extra junk in the trunk,” she says. “But being called ‘fat’ is just a label. A label put on to us by others who can’t handle all this wow, wow, wow. So I’ll take that label and wear it because it does not define me. You want to call me fat? Well, you’d be right. I am F-A-T: Fabulous and tasty.”

Paytas has received positive feedback about her fat-positive anthem from fans and media outlets. There’s nothing better than a catchy tune paired with some body love.

Go on with your bad, beautiful and fat self, Trisha.
