Fatkini. Out of all the social media buzzwords out there, it's one of the most polarizing expressions — simultaneously causing anger and delight. Like us, there are many who consider it an empowering term, as evident in the over 22,000 pictures on Instagram. Many of the 'grammers discuss body love, fears, and hopes — they aren't just inspiring because of their beauty and radiating confidence, but also because they serve as role models for those who are learning to love themselves, regardless of whatever perceived imperfections that antiquated beauty standards push.

In that spirit, we wanted to share with you some of the stunning #fatkini photos we found on Instagram to inspire you to shake off any fashion fears and love your beach body.
