Being beautiful? What is body positivity?

Relayed by social networks over the past few years, the body positive movement aims to help people accept and love themselves as they are, far from today's standardized diktats. However, this movement had its origins much earlier, created in 1996 by two women, body positivism aimed to be a "caring and inclusive" movement. Indeed, Connie Sobczak wanted to use the movement to combat the diktats of appearance, which led to her suffering from eating disorders and cost her sister her life.

Alongside Elizabeth Scott, a psychotherapist specializing in eating disorders, they created the body positive movement, conceiving it as a community that frees itself from stifling social messages to finally accept its own body.

Today, this movement is gaining ground in our societies, reflecting a desire to take back control of our bodies, to accept them in all their diversity and, above all, without the need to rank them, regardless of skin color, age, weight, gender... The important thing is to accept and love ourselves as we are, seeing the beauty in all bodies.

Body positivism is also a movement that claims to be fed up with retouched girls on every magazine cover, fed up with the "Body summer" headlines that claim we should all have a muscular, slim body so we can show it off on the beach. Body positivism is about recognizing that all bodies are beautiful, and that there's no need to compare ourselves or try to look like anyone else to be beautiful, because there's no such thing as a good or bad body shape. Today, body positivism is also about representing all bodies, not just a single standard, so that all the diversity in society feels represented and celebrated.

How can we become more self-assured?

The first step is to stop comparing ourselves to models who seem perfect, in order to look like them. Body positivism means learning to accept your body and love it as a whole, so you can feel good inside and out, and regain your self-esteem.

This can mean taking photos where you don't pose to make sure no bulges stick out, or not paying attention to the light so as not to highlight your cellulite or stretch marks. It's about wearing clothes and lingerie that make you feel good. One that allows us to truly assume our morphology. That's what we're trying to achieve by design your menstrual briefs.

It can also mean looking at yourself in the mirror and concentrating on your physical qualities for a few minutes. Then dwelling on what we see as flaws, but trying to see them in a positive light and, above all, with a benevolent eye. It's been proven that women see their faults first. Focusing on your strengths and seeing your faults in a positive light boosts your self-confidence and enables you to concentrate on what you like about yourself.
