Mindy Kaling inspires fans to embrace their bodies
Mindy Kaling has empowered her fans to love their bodies and not feel pressured to look a certain way.
The Late Night star, who recently turned 40, shared a series of snaps of herself wearing various bikinis on Instagram. In the caption of the post, she encouraged her followers to be comfortable in their own skin and wear what they want to wear.
“IDK who needs to hear this but… WEAR A BIKINI IF YOU WANT TO WEAR A BIKINI,” Mindy wrote. “You don’t have to be a size 0. Swipe for my storytime and have a great summer.”
She further went on to urge her followers to tag her in their own bikini snaps, adding: “If you want to buy ANY high waisted bikini and wear it, tag a pic so I can comment!”
In a separate video, the star explained she never felt comfortable with her body before visiting her best friend in Hawaii, where she claimed the attitude towards women of different shapes and sizes is "so positive".
“It does not matter what your body type is. You rock a bikini. ‘Cause you’re in Hawaii," she gushed. “There’s so much body positivity there!"
