Chaz Bono's dancing queen on Dancing with the Stars is a beautiful woman.
But she definitely isn't the Hollywood norm…and that's a good thing!
Lacey Schwimmer is a woman of curves, and she couldn't be happier.
After defeating an eating disorder as a teenager, one that held her down at a size zero while she survived on six slices of turkey a day, she has maintained a self-love about herself that keeps her healthy.
The dancer exclaims:
I have boobs, I have a huge butt and I have a lot of muscle. I like having curves - I'm proud of them!
Yeah! Preach it!
Honestly, the main thing is that you're healthy.
If you're obsessed with thinspo and starving yourself, that ish is just not cute! But if you're naturally slender, wonderful!
The same goes for curvier women like Lacey. If that's your natural body shape, beautiful! But if you're sulking around all day with pints of Ben & Jerry's, you could gain more poise and happiness through a healthy regime of exercise!
REAL women aren't bound by a certain dress size, and REAL women come in all shapes and sizes, but the most important aspect of a REAL woman is that she's healthy.
And Lacey is most definitely the personification of health. You go, girl!
