Looking at the campaigns surrounding body positivity being represented by a diverse population, all we can do is continue the conversation and show appreciation.
Following the Marie Claire naked issue published August 2018 that had celebrities using nudity to campaign for a good cause by writing a letter to their bodies and flaws, Ackermans has introduced a new campaign to create a movement of women who are proud to show their true selves and embrace their imperfections.
Similarly to the naked issue, the #IAmMe campaign by Ackermans features some of our favourite celebrities by the likes of Busiswa, Rami Chuene, Kim Jayde, Minki van der Westhuizen and Pearl Modiadie pose in their well-fitted lingerie, expressing how they’ve learnt to embrace their flaws.
Check out some of the letters they've written publicly to themselves:
Being body positive is not just about accepting your true yourself but is also about changing society's notion around what they deem to be ‘perfect’, thus we show appreciation to public figures that lead such movements and are bold enough to depict themselves in the manner that you wouldn’t normally see embraced on social media.
