Body positive quotes


A survey with 45,000 women has shown that 60% of women hate their bodies. Not just dislike, they specifically said hate. This percentage is upsetting to me. When I started my Australian lingerie boutique, I wanted to help women love themselves.

I hope women can begin to change the way they look at themselves.

“Body acceptance means, as much as possible, approving of and loving your body, despite its “imperfections”, real or perceived. That means accepting that your body is fatter than some others, or thinner than some others, that your eyes are a little crooked, that you have a disability that makes walking difficult, that you have health concerns that you have to deal with — but that all of that doesn’t mean that you need to be ashamed of your body or try to change it. Body acceptance allows for the fact that there is a diversity of bodies in the world, and that there’s no wrong way to have one.” ― Golda Poretsky
