There is a major conscious effort right now in the body positive movement and it’s good for all of us to keep this momentum going.

Women of all ages experience body negativity and for sure, body insecurity is not limited to teenage girls.

Younger women can be more impressionable to the need to be supermodel thin or celebrity fit but there are plenty of antidotes to this.

One such medium is in awesome books that sell the body positive image.
