Women can wear whatever they want and still be respected — just ask Aly Raisman.
According to HuffPost, the gold-medal-winning Olympic gymnast took to Instagram to make a statement about body confidence. Posting a photo of herself in a swimsuit with a plunging neckline, HuffPost says Raisman captioned the photo this way:
“Wear whatever makes you feel happy and confident. Don’t EVER let anyone tell you how you should or shouldn’t dress. We are all entitled to wear what we want. Females do not have to dress modest to be respected. Be proud of your body.”
Raisman continued her inspiring message by offering that despite our insecurities or the number we see on the scale, we are “unique and beautiful in your own way.”
That’s a message we’ll be sure to keep in mind all summer long!
