The digital era is all about body confidence and body positivity. Showing skin has become the norm, which has meant people embracing their flaws and learning to deconstruct their insecurities.
Often, showing skin brings up questions. How much is too much? Where does sexy end and risque begin? It is easier for celebrities to pose confidently in beachwear, for instance. But the questions are asked even of them.
According to Psychosexual therapist Cathy Holden, "Deciding on how much we show to the world is a personal choice. In the digital age, however, the internet never forgets. As such, pictures and videos can remain in the cloud for an unlimited period of time. Being mindful over this is important for us to think about it in the long term. "
For centuries women have been stigmatized for what they have chosen to wear facing lots of negative connotations. Psychologist Holden further stipulates that "This is not just for women and any human being as we are all deserving of respect, service and human dignity regardless of what we look like."
Here are some high-profile celebrities who are all about body positivity, and who flaunt their figures even in the face of internet trolls:
