Angela Simmons was a trending Twitter topic on Sunday (July 17) after posting several Instagram photos of herself wearing a bikini during Miami Swim Week.
Normally, a woman wearing a bikini in the hot Florida sun isn’t anything out of the ordinary, but Simmons was flaunting her “natural body” and unafraid to show off her ample curves.
And why shouldn't she be? Although the fashion industry has normalized very thin bodies for decades, it’s now starting to include women who aren’t a size 00, or size 10, for that matter. Still, the pressure to be thin and adhere to a mostly unattainable body type has plagued women (and men) for years. In an interview with HipHopDX, Simmons, the daughter of Run-DMC legend Rev Run and niece of Def Jam Recordings co-founder Russell Simmons, admitted she wasn’t always so confident in her skin.
