Essie Golden's hashtag #GoldenConfidence was actually started by Selina Weeks of Manik Magazine. Weeks was inspired by Golden's advocacy for women of all sizes to feel confident in swimwear. Since then, it has expanded to cover just about any look. No matter what you are wearing, show your #GoldenConfidence!

10. #FashionTruth

ModCloth seems to be a company that gets it. They have taken a pledge to never use photoshop and seek to always be inclusive. They first used #FashionTruth when blogger babe Nicolette Mason designed a collection for the brand. Instagrammers were encouraged to share a photo with their #FashionTruth for a chance to win every piece from the collection. Not a bad deal.

11. #ImNoModelEither

Hashtag Count: 300+

Blogger Amanda Richards’ #ImNoModelEither campaign sparked an important conversation in the body positive community. Richards' goal was to have women post pictures of themselves in lingerie to increase the visibility for women who are not normally showcased in mainstream plus fashion. Some of the stories that accompany the photos have been incredibly powerful. Richards' says, “It was really awe-inspiring to realize that most women navigate a tremendously long and complex journey when it comes to their bodies — especially because it feels so lonely sometimes. The truth is no matter what the story, someone can relate to it.”

I love this! The only way to start a change, is to start a change. If you don't see yourself represented in the world, do it yourself. Who doesn't love a good DYI project?
