Curvy TikToker says shes tired of being labelled a body positive influencer

If you are on TikTok, its likely that you've seen Remi Bader.

She has over two million followers and posts videos of herself doing realistic clothes hauls for high-street brands.

The influencer has been an inspiration to curvy girls who feel uncomfortable in certain outfits – and is often referred to as a body positive creator.

However Remi has told Shape that she doesn't count herself as a body positive influencer.

She said: "Just because I'm a bigger girl that ended up on social media with a bigger following, I just don't like the idea that all of a sudden press and brands started considering me this self-love, body positivity person when that's kind of not what I was talking about.

"I never came online and was like, 'I love myself every day.'

"I came on this platform actually gaining a lot of weight, not being fully accepting of my body, and trying to get there."

As well as being a TikTok sensation, Remi is a curve model for lots of different fashion brands.

She's worked with companies like Revolve, who she didn't believe catered to curvier girls until she made a video about struggling to find an outfit that looks good on her.

She is also working with Victoria's Secret PINK, as a brand ambassador and more importantly, a size consultant.

She said: "I feel the most confident when I have an outfit that I'm genuinely excited about, and I really enjoy how I look — not because my body changed or anything about my appearance changed.

"Finding an outfit that I feel good in totally changes my mood."
