The images of Kim Kardashian showing her cellulite are storming social media like crazy. Every day I see these images of her.
Even if the press praises her for her unapologetic attitude about her look, she is not the first one to be brave to show her natural unedited skin to the world. Furthermore, Kim didn’t revolutionise the way we see cellulite, nor did she start a movement as the press tried to point out.
I applaud her for being brave and confident enough to present her natural skin to the world. I’m also happy to see that she joined the body positive movement, but we know it started long before her.
We from Style & Curve Magazine follow this movement for a long time now and we are used to images showing cellulite, stretch marks, thick thighs and belly’s.
Therefore, I picked the most known plus size models and bloggers who were unapologetic about their bodies before Kim Kardashian in the collection below:
All these women and Kim deserve our respect for showing their so-called flaws to the public. I also showed my own cellulite in shootings from the past as you can see in the post below:
Always be unapologetic about your look. I was so insecure as a teen about my #booty, my #thickthights, my #strechmarks and #belly. I tried to cover up as good as possible, but you can't cover up what's meant to #shine! Today I am much more #confident about myself and my #body. I don't mind to show my #naturalskin anymore. I love my body and my personality. I am special and precious in my own way. Now I only feel bad for following the rules of the society, the media, my friends and family for way too long. I am perfect the way I am and the man who loves me, does this cause I am like this! #loveyourself & #loveyourbody! You rule over your life, but trust me you can't do it if you hate yourself or if you try to please others. Please your own wishes for your life first and the people who love you will still follow. Trust me, I know this for sure!

WE CURVY WOMEN ARE UNAPOLOGETIC ABOUT OUR BODIES, BECAUSE WE ARE FINALLY ENJOYING THE WAY WE LOOK AND WE ARE FINALLY CONFIDENT ABOUT OURSELFS!
At the end of the day, why should we hide the cellulite when it was meant to shine?
Silvana Denker, German body positive activist, photographer and model, thinks we shouldn’t hide our flaws as she shows in her post:
#wokeuplikethis when I was in Madrid after a short night. #nomakeup #nofilter #nophotoshop And please register the beautiful toilet in the background, it is very important for the message of the picture 😂😂😂😂 I have big thighs, a belly with rolls, I have bumps, stretch marks, dark under-eye circles and I have to wear glasses or contact lenses because I can't see very well and I have scars. That's me, without styling, without any beautiful fashion, not retouched, just me the way I am. My life wasn't always easy, I went through some very hard years but I never gave up and became the person who I am now. I'm proud to be me, proud I never gave up no matter what happened. And my body tells the story of my life, I learned to love my body with all the "flaws", I learned to love myself and now I'm happier than I ever was. Don't hate yourself, life is too short ❤ #bodylove #bodypositive #loveyourself #loveyourbody #spreadlove #nobodyshaming #nobullying #selflove #acceptance #love
