4 Local Body-Positive Influencers You Should Know

It’s getting warmer and you know what that means! Hot girl (and boy) summer is around the corner
and while summer bodies are made in winter – it’s a reminder that everyone is different. 
Men and women come in all shapes and sizes and we have the privilege to be in an increasingly
inclusive social climate. From Rihanna launching a makeup skincare brand that accurately caters
to all different shades to plus-sized bodies being normalised on the runway and
in fashion catalogues – we’ve come a long way from the 1980s where designers
started favouring ultra-thin models. Here’s are four South African body influencers you should know:

  1. Alex Beazley  

Alex has an extremely relatable approach when it comes to becoming healthier
and more confident in your abilities. She’s helped a lot of people who were sick
and tired of saying “I’ll start on Monday.” She aspires to help change women’s
lives globally by creating a diverse, encouraging and relatable platform.

photographer and digital content creator. She featured in the “Don’t let society tell you
what you can’t wear” movement for plus size women. She’s worked with a lot of local and
international brands and is always seen encouraging women to wear what they want and
show as much skin as they are comfortable showing. and plus-sized model.
 “Self Love is such a rollercoaster journey but we push through because it’s all worth it in the end”
in a society that still weighs heavily on women that don’t fit an ideal size or skin tone,
 it’s inspiring to have someone like Thick Leeyonce to look up to.
