What is the Body Image Movement?

We’re on a quest to end the global body-hating epidemic.

Despite being happily married and successfully juggling motherhood while running a thriving photography business, Taryn Brumfitt was privately struggling with crippling body image issues. Close to resorting to plastic surgery to ‘fix’ her post-childbirth body, Taryn decided that what she really needed to change was not in fact her body, but her attitude towards it.

This was the beginning of the Body Image Movement (BIM), a now 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.

By travelling the globe, headed by founder Taryn Brumfitt, the Body Image Movement is working to put an end to body loathing and spread the message of body loving.

We say no to…

  • Society and advertisers preying on women’s insecurities
  • Excessive Photoshopping of body images in the media
  • Being programmed into accepting unrealistic body images
  • The notion that being a certain weight determines whether you’re healthy
  • Women being treated as sexual objects and the objectification of women

And we say yes to…

  • Body diversity and revelling in the beauty of the human form
  • Celebrating the journey our bodies have been on
  • Growing old, and acknowledging the privilege to do so
  • Focusing on things that are important, rather than comparing ourselves to others
  • Being healthy at every weight
