Curvy British model Iskra Lawrence is one of the leading advocates for body positivity and self-acceptance.
Last November, the 26-year-old stripped on a New York City subway train to share a message of positivity and talk about the importance of the relationship we each have with our own body.
While stripping down, Iskra Lawrence said,
I'm going to reveal myself to you to prove that we are in control of how we feel about ourselves. No one else holds our self-wealth but us. I grew up hating what I saw in the mirror because society told me I was not good enough. I thought there was something wrong because I didn't have a thigh gap, that I had cellulite…
This week, in her latest move to fight body-shaming and promote positivity, Iskra Lawrence posted an unedited photo of herself wearing a super sexy, tiny thong.
To caption the above photo, Lawrence wrote,
'when you give up the pursuit of perfection watch your life positively grow'. ~ #qotd from my TEDx talk... Because we are all good enough, and what's beautiful is that we're imperfectly perfect and all one of a kind. Thank you @ashleyjophoto for celebrating women in your shoots and never retouching me - love you bb. #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
Can't argue with that, right?
If you'd like to argue, though, I urge you to watch the following video of Lawrence showing off her curves at the beach while dancing to Drake.
This is how you love life, people.
Yeah, I got lost in the moment, too.
Going back to Lawrence's subway strip... the 26-year-old model also talked about the issue of how women are portrayed in the media.
That is the media; that is society making a small standard of beauty, when we are so much more than that. This body is not just something to be objectified, to be grabbed, to be looked at. This is my vessel. This is my home. I respect it. No matter what I'm wearing right now, do not judge me.
Keep doing your thing, Iskra Lawrence!
