BROOKLYN - Plus-sized women across the country are flaunting their curves and tagging their photos on social media with the hashtag #fatkini.

The hashtag has been trending on social media, and the goal is to inspire women of all sizes to be happy and comfortable in their own skin.

News 12 Brooklyn hit the street to ask residents how they feel about the use of the hashtag.

Some say it's great if you're confident in your own body. Others say pictures like that should not be on social media for everyone to see.
