One woman told INSIDE EDITION, “Its fun."
Another said, "I feel beautiful and confident"
"I feel liberated," said another.
These bold and brave women are empowered by the new social media trend #fatkini.
The internet campaign has an army of plus size women proudly wearing bikinis and posting their photos on Instagram and Twitter.
One woman told INSIDE EDITION, “Fatkini is pretty much anytime a fat woman fears a bikini.”
But not everyone loves the fatkini trend. Critics say the photos encourage an unhealthy life style and that the women should focus on losing weight.
During our photo shoot, poolside at the Intercontinental Hotel in Los Angeles, the full figured gals say they're spreading a message of tolerance and acceptance.
“To people who say I’m glorifying anything or I should lose weight, I tell them, ‘Maybe you should mind your own business,'” said one woman.
