‘OITNB’ Star Danielle Brooks Says Eff Your Beauty Standards!

Sports bra selfie anyone?

On the heels of her stunning curvy girl swimwear photo shoot with People StyleWatch, “Orange Is The New Black” star Danielle Brooks said eff your beauty standards, again, with a flawless sports bra selfie on Instagram.

That’s right while you were photoshopping that extra roll out of your bikini flick, Brooks is celebrating her body just as it is.

The star confesses she’s been wanting to hit the gym shirtless for a while but was discouraged because her body wasn’t perfect.

Hey 💜rs, Today I decided to do something I’ve never done before: Go to the gym with my SHIRT OFF!! 🙊 I thought I’d share why this is significant for me. I’ve always wanted to do this but have felt shameful and have told myself “until my body is perfect I’m forbidden.” Today my inner being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love. I should not be ashamed of my body. I’m not a walking imperfection! I’m a Goddess. Secondly, I’m a confident woman! That doesn’t stop once I take off my spanx. Lol Sometimes it’s a struggle. Sometimes I don’t like what I see, but I have the power to change the way in which I relate to my body both physically and mentally. Today I woke up feeling beautiful and motivated to love myself and take care of the ONE body that I’ve been given. I’m not saying World take your shirt off, twist it round your head, spin it like a helicopter🎶, (lol) I’m saying everyone live in your confidence. One Life. One Body. Take Care of It. With 💜, DanieB #voiceofthecurves #yesmythighstouch #lovethyself #beautyinandout #goddess #imabadshutyomouth #ivebeeneatingmygreens #thickathanasnika
