I am a big advocate for body positivity. So, when I saw Khloe Kardashian had released an article on her app called “5 Hacks to Look Thin AF in Pics” I was shocked. Angry and shocked. The tweet has been liked 3,113 times and retweeted 130 times.
Now, I’m not going to lie, I haven’t read the article. There are two reasons why 1) I don’t want to pay for the app and 2) we all know the article is BS. (Or at least I hope we do).
I was really disappointed when I saw her promoted the post with the tweet “I got you boos!! (winking face emoji)”. I thought that with her Good American line, Khloe would have a more body positive attitude and not be using her platform to promote how important it is to look thin in your photos.
In this post, I thought I would give some advice of my own on body positivity and how I help myself feel good in day to day life:
- I remind myself that how my body looks is the least important thing about me. As long as my body is as healthy (as it can be with an autoimmune disease) then it doesn’t matter.
- I do not compare myself to others – especially pictures in magazines! Though many companies are wising up to it, many still use extreme photoshop on models! So if you are sad that you do not look like the model in the magazine. Remeber, they probably do not look like that either!
- I wear what I like when I like and post pictures at any angle and any pose I like because my pictures are for me and not anyone else.
- I do not listen to people who post articles such as the one mentioned above. It is silly and you will probably just end up more self-conscious in photos!
They are my top tips for body positivity – what are some of yours?

Such good advice. I was equally as disappointed in Khloe for this – I have always loved her but I feel like with such a following she should be promoting self-confidence rather than advising people to hide behind others to look skinnier in their photos. I am trying my best to channel body confidence. I have to admit I find it difficult not to compare, but I’m trying my hardest :) xx
