“Listen: I like my bikinis very small, and I also like, uh, nude-colored bikinis because people double-take – they think I’m naked on the beach.”
“I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”
“I’m not going to starve just to be thin… I want to enjoy life and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.”
“I’m sure every designer has a certain person in mind who they would ideally like to wear their clothes, but the problem is that a lot of the time that person doesn’t actually exist, unless she is a 15-year-old model.”
