Loey Lane is an army wife, animal lover, college student, and a beauty blogger. She uploads lots of videos to her YouTube channel, LoeyLane, and receives a ton of comments and feedback from them. Sometimes she wears revealing outfits in her videos, like bikinis, and some people feel the need to say things about it. While many commentators in her audience are positive, non-judgmental, and even defend her, others are quite cruel.
To effectively deal with these ‘haters’ and address them directly, Loey made a video titled “Why fat girls shouldn’t wear bikinis.” She runs through the main reasons that people reference when they say that she should cover up and promptly points out the wrong in their reasoning. She has some very poignant and thoughtful responses and it’s refreshing to see her stand up for herself while taking the high road. She doesn’t lower herself to the level of the trolls who spout off cruel jibes and hide behind their computer screens, and that makes her all the more authentic and worthy of listening to.
Loey’s message is all about body positivity, loving life, and believing in yourself. Every single body type whether it be fit, thin, fat, average, large, and so on, is beautiful. If someone has nothing nice to say then they should keep their mouths shut. Loey is spreading the message that you are free to do what you choose, and that includes wearing whatever you want to. Life is too short to be miserable and always worried about what others think. Live it for you and only you, not random, judgmental jerks on the internet.
