Instagram influencer Thick Leeyonce’s energy is contagious. The pride she has in her body has led her to break so many expectations of what beauty looks like. The body positive model, photographer and overall boss lady always reminds us to be kinder to ourselves and learn to love the bodies we are in.
Here are 4 times the model has inspired us with her powerful words while showing off her fire curves:
1. Rocking a black bikini on the Clifton beach shore the model shared “Hey world! I’m fat. I look good. That’s all, thank you.”
2. During a Valentine’s day campaign the plus size fashion designer touched on the importance of representation in the industry, highlighting how beauty needs to be diversified.
“There’s something special about being around women that look just like you. You’re able to see your own beauty through them...this is why representation is important. We are constantly exposed to the same kind of beauty, day after day & it’s disheartening when you can't even relate to it because you look nothing like the girls that the world glorifies,” she shared.
Thick Leeyonce further explained who her love goes out to: “my love goes to all the girls who have anxiety every time they have to look in the mirror, girls who believe they’re unworthy because of their physical appearance. I love you! Don't shrink yourself to make someone else comfortable!"
3. Confidence and comfort is always key and she clearly showed it in this two piece lingerie set reminding us all that “You move different when you’re comfortable with who you are”.
4. In the end we all deserve to give ourselves the love we know we deserve no matter how different we look or feel. “People love to hate what’s different or what they don’t understand. Love who you love, do what you love and give yourself all the love you deserve”.
