Nearly 1 in 6 ballet dancers have an eating disorder, according to a study published by the national library of medicine.

‘Love Your Leo’ is a campaign launched by the ballet club at the University of East Anglia aiming to spread the message that you don’t need to be a certain size to wear a leotard or participate in sports.

Now in its third year, the campaign has gone national, with universities across the UK getting involved.

Members of various sports clubs are posting photos of themselves in leotards or tight-fitting sports kit around campus and iconic locations in the city.
