With the body positivity movement picking up momentum, more and more women of all shapes and sizes are embracing their natural curves. Love handles, saddlebags, muffin tops, chubby knees, big butts—it doesn't matter what perceived flaws they have. Some women are even taking to Instagram and posting sexy selfies with hashtags like #fat, #fatty, and #fatshion, but they use these words in a happy and accepting way. To the women jumping on board with this trend, "fat" is not an insult; it's a compliment and they wear their extra weight like a badge of honor. They’re not ashamed of their size and they won’t conform to mainstream standards of beauty. These "fatshionistas," as some of them call themselves, feel beautiful and radiate confidence; they look beautiful, too. They know what to wear to flatter their figures. If that means rebelling against traditional fashion rules, so be it. These plus-size beauties can pull off whatever they want. Here are 15 smoking hot fat girls who proudly show off their lovely bodies—however big—on Instagram.
