Reminder to myself, and to all— you don’t need a flat or perfectly toned stomach to wear a crop top. These “summer body” trends are toxic. Your body is ready for summer no matter what it looks like. Don’t let it stop you from enjoying anything 🥲🙏🏻

“These “summer body” trends are toxic. Your body is ready for summer no matter what it looks like,” she continued. “Don’t let it stop you from enjoying anything 🥲🙏🏻”.
Her fans appreciated the message with one fan writing, “i’ve been struggling so much with my body lately and because of where i live it’s already starting to get warmer so this has been on my mind a lot… thank you for this.”
The star has been candid about her own lifelong struggle with self-image and her own body.
She recently opened up about her struggles on Instagram.
“I’ve been struggling with obsessive thoughts about my body/weight the last few months and it’s gotten pretty severe in the last week,” she wrote in a series of Stories. “So, I want to take a moment to be vulnerable and share this in hope that any of you who are also struggling don’t feel so alone.”
