Embrace Yourself

When was the last time you wore a bikini without a care in the world? Did a bomb in the pool? Jumped on a trampoline with your kids?

Taryn Brumfitt, director of award-winning documentary Embrace and fiercely passionate champion of women, has inspired more than a million people across the world to Embrace their bodies. Her message is urgent, critical and incredibly inspiring: learn to accept your body for all the wonderful gifts it brings you and reject the destructive fake images we are bombarded with every day.

Embrace Yourself is the ultimate ‘how to’ guide to loving your body at every shape and size. Do you want to be kinder to your body? Do you want to spend less time worrying about what you look like, and more time focusing on the things you love? If the answer is yes, then this book might just change your life.

It’s time to embrace yourself

Street Cred


I first watched Embrace on a flight from Australia to Los Angeles and was profoundly affected by what I saw. I was on my way to attend the 2017 Academy Awards. I had just birthed my second child, had not yet shed the baby weight and was days away from walking the biggest red carpet of my career. I felt I was under the watchful eye of Hollywood – an industry that is rife with both scrutiny and self-criticism – but watching Embrace carried me through those anxiety-ridden days and the weeks that followed.

The media would have us believe we need to reach a standard that is simply not realistic. Making people feel inadequate is a very profitable business! I have been photoshopped and airbrushed a thousand times over, which in the past has led to a private struggle in separating who I am from the way I look. I personally know so many women who suffer through this same battle, but watching Embrace reminded me that the issue is much bigger than many of us realise. We are in the midst of a heartbreaking epidemic…


It’s time to embrace yourself


“One woman doesn’t create a global movement; it’s a collective of visions and stories. Everyone’s journey to embracing their bodies is different; I’ve always found the best approach is to take a little bit of advice from lots of different people.

I wanted to recognise and honour these women who I am fortunate enough to call my friends, for the time and passion they have dedicated to our cause – I know you’re going to love them, too.”

When Embrace Yourself launched in September 2018, we took the Embrace bus on her maiden voyage with seven events in seven days in seven towns across Australia. It was a huge success, with thousands of women coming together for the ultimate girls’ night out to embrace and connect through laughter, tears, fashion and storytelling.
