Body image is how you see yourself when you look in the mirror or when you picture yourself in your mind. It encompasses what you believe about your own appearance (including your memories, assumptions, and generalizations).

 

How we define body image is entirely subjective and highly individualistic. Is the fashion industry doing enough to be body inclusive and celebrate bodies in all shapes and sizes?
