These #SquishieFishies Show Us That Mermaids Look Amazing With Curves

by Grace Easterby

As the summer kicks off, we here at BUST want to thank Instagram artist @gnightirene for her flawless portrayal of mermaids with curves. With the temperatures rising, it’s a great time to indulge in your underwater fantasies, and we appreciate the recognition that not all mermaids are size 2.

We think these body-positive mermaid drawings are stunning and capture what has been missing from mermaid representation—curvy women looking fierce in the water. We love this Instagram page and the work it’s doing to show that all mermaids can flaunt their fins, regardless of size. 

For more voluptuous mermaid love, check out @gnightirene on Instagram.
