Bossier City resident and wedding photographer Rachel Taylor made national headlines after doing some shopping over the Fourth of July weekend.

The whole brouhaha began July 3 when Taylor was shopping at Old Navy for a patriotic outfit. "The girl picked up a plus-size tank top, showed it to her mom and said, 'Look! Me and So-and-so can fit in this tank top!'" she posted on her Facebook page. Even though the remark was not directed at her, Taylor says she walked out of the store, accompanied by her husband, sat in her car and cried before eventually returning.

"I ended up buying that tank top because, it turns out, I look fierce in it!" she posted along with a full-sized selfie. "Be kind. Think about others before you speak. And if someone hurts you, you have to move on."

Taylor says she's received lots of positive feedback on the selfie, telling E! News, "I don't understand how this is acceptable behavior in our society. No matter what their shape or size or how they got there, every man and woman should feel confident in their own skin. Body diversity isn't about promoting unhealthy lifestyles; it's about loving yourself and others. I hope that by sharing my struggle, I can help promote a society that encourages kindness and positivity instead of judgment."

Way to go, Rachel! Show those body-shamers what's what!
