There’s a popular notion that “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” This may or may not be true, but now that we spend so much time online, we spend a lot of time “with” our favorite content creators.
Representation matters, and as I continue my self-love and fat liberation journey, I’ve found it really helpful to follow people that look like me.
If you’re looking to see more body positive or fat liberation content in your social feeds, here are 18 creators I recommend following:
Maggie’s never-ending enthusiasm for coffee and autumn are infectious - I love following along on Maggie’s adventures with their partner in Philadelphia.
Christine, an illustrator living in Dallas, took a chance on The Scrunchie Club and was our first ever partner artist. Their scrunchie design, “Fat and Happy”, benefits NEDA in support of their work around body positivity.
We are big fans of Christine’s illustration style, and can’t wait to read the graphic memoir they are working on. Their art continues to inspire me on my own self-love journey.
I follow Sydney on TikTok, and her style continuously inspires me to try new things in my own wardrobe. Also, her content about diet culture is always incredibly relatable.
Lauren is another creator I discovered on TikTok, and she creates videos on intuitive eating, health at every size, mental health, and more. I find myself liking every single one of her videos 😂
again, if you must look... please look respectfully and don’t make it weird I’m just trying to do a cottagecore♬ original sound - Rowan
I love following along on Meagan’s journey as a curve model in NYC - her content always reminds me to never give up on my dreams. I’m also a big fan of her “gratitude check” series, as it encourages me to join in and think about what I’m grateful for that day.
Devon is a law student, caretaker for her grandmother, and possibly my fashion role model. Her content truly inspires me to push myself outside of my comfort zone with clothing, and her correct takes on living in a plus size body are always appreciated in my book.
Meg is a mother, author, and a mother-f*cking boss athlete. Enough said.
Something about fresh air during a workout that feels so dang good.♬ Girls in the Hood - Megan Thee Stallion
They always keep it real - we love having them as a part of The Scrunchie Club community. 💕
Melissa’s content always reminds me to keep after my goals - I love watching her grow her empire. Also, Melissa’s “would you rather” games are legendary.
I’m basically obsessed with Josie’s fashion aesthetic. Like me, she loves simple pieces with a splash of fun.
If you’re into bold colors, Anabethis a must follow. Her confidence shines through in every photo, and always serves as a little reminder that life (and clothes!) are meant to be fun.
