Over 200 pounds 20-year old Sara Petty sports a bikini to hit back at female body shamers
20-year old Bowling Green State University, Ohio student Sara Petty is a true hero. She is one person who despite weighing 219 pounds believes that it is nothing to be ashamed of. But, over time she became tired of body shamers who always advocated what overweight girls should wear or not wear.

Instead of trolling such people Sara decided to give them a befitting reply by posting her pictures in a bikini and leggings and all sorts of dresses overweight women are adviced not to wear.

Along with her photos Sara paired bully posts, which she found on Twitter, saying that women who weigh in excess of 200 pounds shouldn't wear certain kinds of clothes, although these tweets were not directed at her.

Sara took to Twitter and destroyed the notion that women who are over 200 pounds can't look good in a bikini. The message from Sara to all girls who feel embarrassed of their unruly figure was: "Girls, wear whatever the hell you want!", as read the caption on all four of her selfies.

Sara in her post said, "I hope women realize how important it is to stop tearing each other down and uplift each other."

Sara added, "I also hope that girls are able to separate who they are from the number that shows up on the scale, and realize there is no number, high or low, that dictates if you're worthy of feeling beautiful."

"Body shaming will probably always be there in some way," Sara suggested, "but I hope my post helps at least some women feel beautiful in spite of it."

Sara, who is a keen blogger and is studying public relations pointed out that all cruel comments had come from other women.

Coincidently men gave a thumbs up to Sara and overwhelmingly responded to her post by saying that she not only looked perfect in a bikini but rather looked hot and sexy.
