Love your Lines is a wonderful account that celebrates all the marks that our bodies gather throughout life, be it stretch marks, scars, burns and anything else.

4) Gina Susanna – Nourish and Eat
Gina from Nourish and Eat is an Eating Disorder survivor who is now set on spreading the Bo-Po message and making sure that she can help every girl who feels the way she once did, see the light at the end of the tunnel and realise that happiness needs to come from within not what the the scales say.
5) 4th Tri Bodies
The 4th Trimester Bodies Project is a movement that is about celebrating the beauty of Motherhood and how women’s bodies change to accommodate and nourish life. The perfect account for helping new mums and even women without children understand that bodies go through a lot in pregnancy and that it is perfectly ok for your body not to be the same as it was. Keep up the good work guys!!
6) Megan Crabbe – BodyPosiPanda
Megan from Body Posi Panda has been a long standing favourite of ours and her page is one that I often turn to when I need to feel a little bit of self-love. Her inspirational quotes and anecdotes make so much sense that you almost want to rip off all your clothes and prance about in your pants. They make you question every doubt you’ve ever had about yourself – so for that reason Megan is the definition of ‘Body Positivity’.
7) Mindset for Life LTD
Michelle Elman from Mindset For Life LTD is Bo-Po personified. Michelle suffered from many health conditions as a young girl which resulted in multiple surgeries. She used to be ashamed of her scars but has since ditched the shame and instead adopted a positive outlook on her body and scars and what they represent. She shows that we should never hide the things that make us who we are. You go girl.
So there you have it, 7 wonderfully positive and uplifting accounts to help you feel great about you. Give them a follow – we promise you won’t regret it.
