One of the most powerful things that I do to reinforce my personal body love journey is to seek out positive representations of fat bodies. I live in a culture that barrages me with negative images of, and messages about, fat bodies. It’s important to me that I counteract that.
I was thinking about it today because the Adipositivity Project Annual Calendar is out [link NSFW unless your work is really cool), and, as always, it is awesome! I was lucky enough to be an Adiposer for the awesome Substantia Jones’ fabulous fat positive project [NSFW] and it was an amazing experience..
It inspired me to take pictures of some of the positive representations of fat bodies that we keep around the house…
I was also reminded of these soft sculptures by Yulia Ustinova on Facebook today (and thus reminded that I desperately want one!)
What are some of your favorite representations of fat bodies? Please feel free to leave links to them in the the comments!
