At RunwayRiot, we believe that the fight for body acceptance gets stronger every day on the backs of body positive women. With RunwayRiot’s tell-all video series My Body My Story, we take you up close with today’s body positive warriors. Each one will tell you about her complex and inspirational relationship with her body, because every woman has one.
Here to tell that story today is Emmicia Bracey, Eloquii model and a ferocious advocate for women of all sizes. In this video, this stylish, inspirational woman talks about how she said to hell with her fear of being ridiculed for her shape, that time she tried to will her body into a knot for some other man’s comfort on a flight, and how she does not have the time nor the energy to be obsessed with wearing what everyone else says she should wear. She even coughs up some body positive life advice for the folks at home. Watch below, and react and get at us with your body image story in the comments.
The Runway will hear us. Let the Riot begin. Watch the trailer below.
