fatkiniBody confidence is trending on Instagram and Twitter, all thanks to the #Fatkini hashtag! Por fin, a selfie trend that promotes self-acceptance. I can get down with that.

The trending hashtag has been attributed to Gabi Gregg, a plus-size style blogger and plus-size swimwear entrepreneur. In 2012, Gregg (who also goes by Gabi Fresh) encouraged women of all sizes to ditch the cover-ups in favor of body-baring bikinis.  "As always, I truly encourage you guys to get to the beach (or a pool) this summer. Don't let body shame keep you from having a good time!" Gabi writes. "I don't expect everyone to feel comfortable in a two piece, but hopefully I can inspire some of you to take the plunge. I can't tell you how freeing it is to just have fun without worrying about what other people think."

It took a few years, but the #Fatkini finally caught on and it looks like it's here to stay.

It's truly a beautiful sight to behold.

It used to be that plus-size women only had one swimsuit style to choose from--the dreaded skirted one-piece. Ugh! Thank goodness times have changed. These days, plus-size women have hundreds of fashionable one- and two-piece swimsuits pick from.
