She travels the world to interview an impressive range of women about their attitudes to their bodies, including: Mia Freedman, the youngest ever editor of the Australian edition of Cosmopolitan; Adelaide researcher Professor Marika Tiggemann; UK talk show host/photographer Amanda de Cadenet; body image blogger Jess Baker (a.k.a. The Militant Baker); and motivational speaker Turia Pitt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must see for everyone In this documentary Taryn Brumfitt, positive body image advocator demonstrates how every woman's body is unique, and argues that women should not be controlled by judgement on how they 'should' look. Taryn does not disagree that health and well being are important - but enforces the need for us to embrace our bodies and shows that leading a happy life is much more important than obsessing over how you look. I first saw Embrace in the theatre with my mum and I would recommend it for anyone who has ever had any doubts about their body - male or female. It really made me realise how crazy some social expectations are, and I will never again allow myself to be controlled by them! I will watch this DVD many more times!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deeply meaningful Young, old, girl or boy - everyone needs to see this! The issue of body image effects everyone, and the film encourages us to speak more openly about our insecurities and sheds light on how society is creating unrealistic expectations about the way we should look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Embrace I bought 2 copies of this movie for use in my NGO organization's educational work because it is such a fantastic resource. I have already seen the movie at a Film Festival and couldn't wait for it to be released for purchase. A Body Image story for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring! I felt so inspired and empowered to be confident in my own, unique skin after seeing this documentary on body positivity. Taryn Brumfitt's bubbly personality and humour make the documentary an enjoyable watch too!
