While her series has had a lot of success — giving her over 700,000 followers on Instagram alone — it’s not without its critics. Some in Bree’s comment section say her series doesn’t have the same impact it would if she wasn’t thin, which Bree says she recognizes.
“I understand where people come from because I experience ‘thin privilege,'” she said. “I’ve never entered a store and struggled to find my size because the store doesn’t stock it, as many plus-sized people have experienced. But I entered a store and saw my body in the dressing room mirrors and cried because my body has humps and humps and roundness and softness – what I’ve come to learn is so normal human and beautiful I’m really only here to encourage inner kindness because it completely changed my life for the better .”
