Isle of Paradise Launch Get Body Posi Campaign and We’re Here for It
Cult-favourite tanning brand, Isle of Paradise, launched their Get Body Posi campaign earlier this month and we haven’t stopped obsessing since.
Aiming to make body acceptance top of the beauty agenda, the campaign boasts a 10-strong line-up that includes the likes of Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson and plus-size model Tess Holliday.
The movement comes after Nike revealed their plus size mannequins in the London flagship store in June, whilst the new Boots advert celebrates different opinions on ‘summer ready’ bodies.
Revealing all in a free downloadable pamphlet, founder Jules Von Hep describes how his self-tan campaign is designed to help people break free from body shaming and the comparison culture.
In the pamphlet, he shares his personal journey to body positivity, which saw him continuously body-shamed, bullied and even assaulted in a nightclub aged 31.
‘I was the victim of a homophobic attack in a nightclub,’ he explains. ‘I was beaten to the floor by two total strangers and my world fell apart. My skull ached, my body was sore, but worst of all my spirit was broken. I pushed myself to carry on, but eventually I cracked and broke down. I felt worthless, alone, bruised and lost. This was the darkest time of my life.’
Now, Von Hep lives by the advice to 'feed your happy' and wants to encourage others to do the same. Recognising that all bodies are beautiful, he actively spreads the message that you should love every inch of yourself, inside and out.
Since launching, Isle of Paradise has not only completely changed the industry with its innovative tanning formulas, but also with its positive attitude towards empowerment, acceptance and body confidence, and that's something we can definitely get behind – keep growing and glowing IOP, you're smashing it!
