Body Shaming Quotes



We get told by family, friends, and society – even strangers! – how we should look like women in order to be “accepted” and “known” as “beautiful”. Body shaming quotes are collected to showcase the negativity of people about women’s beauty. We are objectified by our partners and spouses, who tell us what feels right ‘for us’, taking advantage of our bodies in the process. 

It’s no surprise when we get body-shamed left and right. But there is a positive message underneath this barrage of negativity: the given body-shaming quotes will help you to build self-esteem. And if you go up against all these obstacles (even though they come thick and fast), hold your head high, because you already have the self-belief and strength within you to be whatever you want to be despite what other people might say about your appearance or capabilities. You are beautiful!
