We love these girls for making us feel beautiful, confident and simply normal every day!
We all love social media but isn’t it about time we saw some normality when we scroll through our feed every day? We took to Instagram to search out our top body confidence influencers and we think you’ll agree they have got style, sass and plenty of skin – and it’s just how we like it!
For all the Kylie and Kendell Jenners that pop up on our feeds, you should be safe in the knowledge that there is a normal, unfiltered (just as interesting, if not more) woman coming next. And these are our absolute favourite!
