#BodyPositivity isn't just a hashtag — it's a mantra, a movement, and a way of life.

These influencers are the epitome of that. They aren't afraid to wear a bikini (and why should they be?), and they want you to feel comfortable doing it, too. Simply put: They are queens.

I’m not in 100% high self-esteem mode all the time, and that’s okay. You don’t have to be. As long as you bounce back and remember your beauty and worth (even with help from others), you’re still working toward bettering yourself and feeling more comfortable in your skin," she wrote on Instagram.
