Almost all of us could do with being a little bit kinder to ourselves, but we know how difficult it can be to feel confident in the way you look when there’s so much pressure put on us to look and act a certain way.

One woman on TikTok is tackling those unrealistic beauty standards and expectations head-on though, as her whole house is dedicated to creating a “body-positive” environment that allows her to thrive and not feel bad about herself.

Charis recently shared one video on her account in which she went through some of the items in her house that help to lift her spirits and remind her that she’s beautiful in her own body – including body-positive books, as well as artwork featuring curvier bodies, which Charis herself labelled “fat art”.

The woman captioned her video: “Things in my body positive house that just make sense!”

Charis, who posts on TikTok under the username @floralfrosting, also shared a look at her fully-stocked fridge and her “non-diet coffee station”, which included several bottles of flavour syrups that she can add to her hot drinks.

The woman even noted she has a wardrobe full of “clothes that fit”, and has thrown out or donated anything that is too small for her – so she never has the guilt of looking at an item of clothing and knowing it doesn’t fit.

And Charis’ video has seen her receive high praise from people online, many of whom now want to transform their own homes into body-positive paradises.

One person said: “I just know I’d instantly feel at home at yours. I’m off to buy fat art now.”

While another added: “I want a coffee station too, that looks so cool.”

“I love this. Clothes that fit is so important. I really need to get some of those and get rid of the clothes that just hang there to make me feel bad”, someone else wrote.

And responding to that comment, Charis said: “It really makes a difference. I know it’s hard, I only recently cleared out some small clothes I’d been holding onto, but it’s a joy knowing I can choose.”

Some other commenters shared the things they include in their own homes to bring a body-positive vibe, including having large bath towels and robes that help them feel comfortable after a shower.

There were also messages from people who praised Charis’ wardrobe and sense of style as “inspiring”, and the woman revealed she buys most of her clothes from Monki, as well as Sainsbury’s clothing line Tu.
