MY body. #thankstho
Wow! We’re so proud of Chrissy for standing up for herself and speaking up for her right to dress herself however she sees fit. Of course, given Chrissy’s history of being open about her weight loss journey and remaining body-positive throughout it, we’re not entirely surprised.
“Size doesn’t equate to beauty,” Chrissy said in a recent interview. “I don’t understand why that’s a thing. Well, I do, because the media has told us thin is beautiful. But is it? Because I think people are miserable not eating and smoking cigarettes.”
You tell ’em, Chrissy!
