Thick thighs saved lives on the runway at Miami Swim Week, but more importantly, Angela Simmons broke the internet after posting unedited pictures in her swimsuit. While we are acutely aware of the fact that most celebs alter their photos when fully clothed, it was refreshing to see Simmons give us her raw self wearing a very unforgiving bathing suit. The photo was not only sexy and a major selling point for the bathing suit, but a reminder of what “real women” look like.
We are not monolithic, coke bottle-shaped, cellulite-free prototypes. Some of us are OK with that stubborn belly fat, thigh jiggle, and booty dimples, and for once here was a celebrity posting a vulnerable image of herself looking less than perfect and saying “RAW no edit. REAL bodies matter.”
