A travel blogger has shared her experience of being plus size while vacationing around the world.
And, she pushes others to feel good about themselves and explore despite their size.
Size 24 Abbie, from Cardiff, has over 36,900 followers on Instagram, @dream0graphy, where she shared her “plus size motorhome diaries”.
She also makes cheeky videos about the problems tall people face while traveling.
Recently, Abbie revealed that she wouldn’t let her fuller figure stop her from rocking a jumpsuit.
The Instagram star opened up about where you can find a suit to suit her size 24 physique – and struck a pose in the form-fitting garment.
Anyone who’s ever worn a wetsuit knows that tight swimsuits show off every bump.
And that means many of us don’t feel safe wearing them – but not Abbie.
She shared a series of photos wearing the O’Neill Men’s Reactor Wetsuit, available in sizes XS to 4XL.
And Abbie said, “Don’t let other people’s opinions stop you from doing what you love.
“I always thought I would look so silly in a wet suit, or even swimming alone in any body of water, period.
“But do you know what is going on more than anything? People argue, they want to know what the water is like or how comfortable the wetsuit is.
“I think we sometimes build these ideas in our minds based on past experiences of how others will treat us based on how we look, but that’s your sign that you’re allowed to rewrite the narrative.
“Or start a new story entirely. Go do what you want to do.
In the comments, her fans praised the plus-size bloggers’ words.
One person said, “I like it so much.”
While another added: “Well I think you look really cool!”
And a third commented: “Beautiful words from an inspiring woman.”
However, the travel blogger said in a short clip that there are some things she won’t be doing.
This included sitting on plastic chairs.
Abbie filmed herself saying the words, ‘I need to talk to a fat person’ in reaction to someone offering her a plastic outdoor chair.
In the caption, she said: “A single silent tear rolls down my face when I see a plastic chair, and I’m about to find an excuse not to sit on it because there just won’t be no chair if I do.”

Fellow curvy travelers agreed with the blogger.
One person noted, “That and folding camping chairs. I spent four hours standing at a barbecue a few weekends ago for fear of sitting down and getting on the floor.
“It’s so relatable OMG,” added another.
While a third wrote: ‘Yeah I guess over 200lbs the legs bend a bit. If they get exposed to the sun and you collapse, the legs will break.
