We’re on a quest to end the global body-hating epidemic.
The Body Image Movement (BIM) is an internationally recognised crusade that was founded on the belief that your body is not an ornament, it’s the vehicle to your dreams. BIM believes that everyone has the right to love and embrace their body, regardless of shape, size, ethnicity or ability.
Through educational resources, speaking events and inspiring content the Body Image Movement, headed by founder Taryn Brumfitt, is teaching the world to love the skin they’re in.

We weren’t born hating our bodies. As toddlers running around in our diapers we weren’t thinking about the dimples on our legs or the jiggle in our belly. Nudey runs through the sprinkler in summer was not an invitation to ruminate on the size of our bum. When we were young, we were free. We said yes to adventures, we jumped into the pool, we danced, we laughed, we gave less shits and then….we grew up. We started buying into the toxic messages from people and industries that told us to be anything other than what we are and we ended up here – exhausted, disconnected and hating our bodies.
I feel incredibly optimistic and confident about creating a global movement of positive change, because just as we’ve learned to hate our bodies, we can re-learn to love them. The message of Embrace has connected with millions of people around the world, and to this day I’ve never met a person that has regretted loving their body more! We walk on this planet for the shortest moment in time and it was never our purpose to spend that precious time waging a war against our body!
The Body Image Movement is a judgement-free zone. No matter what your past has taught you, or what you continue to believe and do, no matter what you look like, the size of your dress, whether you botox or not, you will always be embraced by the worldwide crusade that is Body Image Movement.
I speak from the heart when I talk about loving the body that I am in, but it hasn’t always been this way. I have abused this bo...Read More

Finally, after almost 50 years I can look at myself in the mirror…NAKED…and say I am beautiful. This is something that I never dreamed I would be able to do. What a new beginning!

Watching Embrace reminded me that the issue of body image is much bigger than many of us realise. The motivation offered by Taryn and the Body Image Movement will set you on the right path. Embrace Yourself is a gift to all women; let it be your bible.

Embrace You reshaped the way I perceive my body. As an overweight child, I adopted a negative attitude towards my body and turned to excessive dieting and exercising. Embrace You helped me to overcome feelings of self-doubt as well as the fear to let go.

After completing Embrace You I thought WOW this is what I’ve been searching for. Before Embrace You I was always saying I want to look like… I want to be slimmer… I hate my thighs… My love handles… My big nose. Now I love who I am.

Taryn was a hoot to work with! She brought our audience to their feet with her no-holds-barred approach to loving their bodies more and bringing an awareness to the issue with an unparalleled level of passion and enthusiasm that only Taryn can.

I was delighted with the response of over 120 adolescents to Taryn’s documentary Embrace. The message is imperative to assist vulnerable teenagers who are being bombarded through advertising and social media. Thanks for making a difference in so many lives.
