A plus-size woman who was trolled for her “granny legs” caused by a health condition has embraced her body and feels “beautiful” in a bikini.

Beckie Bold, 24, felt self-conscious growing up and she always struggled with the size of her legs. At school she was called “granny legs” but it wasn’t until she was 21 that she was diagnosed with lipoedema, a condition which causes a painful build-up of fat in her legs, arms and hips.

The communications intern, who lives in Llandudno, North Wales but went to the University of Salford in 2017, began to embrace her looks after seeing ‘fat positive’ influencers on Instagram.

Beckie, who wears a UK size 26, no longer feels she has to cover her body in long black clothes and loves to wear skimpy outfits and bikinis.
