I said to my body, ‘I want to be your friend’. It took a long breath. And replied ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this’.

-Nayyirah Waheed

Throughout our lives, we are bombarded by messages that paint us with shame. Ads that tell us we’re not skinny enough, not smart enough… and somehow not good enough to make the grade.

At Shapermint, we’re changing the conversations women are having about their bodies.

We asked 4 extraordinary women to share their struggles with body image… and the day they learned to erase the shame and love everything they see in the mirror.

This is their truth.

What’s your truth?

Inspired? Now it’s your turn to inspire others. What part of your body were you shamed into hating, only to have to relearn to love later in life? What part of you are you still struggling to fully embrace?

Imagine there’s a young girl reading your social media posts - what message would you like her to receive? What words of encouragement did YOU need when you were her age?

Share your truth using the #ThisIsMyTruth hashtag and be the awesome you wish to see in the world.

Our truth is that no woman needs shapewear.

But we’re here if you want a little support.
