HINANGAAN at pinuri si Iza Calzado sa caption ng post niya na naka-two-piece swimsuit, unfiltered at kita ang cellulite, stretch marks at loose skin na resulta ng kanyang pagpayat.
“My body has gone through so many changes and as a result I have stretch marks, loose skin, scars and cellulite. I no longer want to hide these behind digitally distorted images because, truth be told, this reduces the pressure of trying to look perfect in every picture. This is one of my steps in my self love journey and I have written more about this topic in the latest issue of @metromagph which will be out online soon.
“P.S. Lighting, shadows and angle not included in digital distortion so I will continue to use this to my advantage! Hahaha.”
May sinagot din si Iza ng, “ang saya to be deadma about what other people may say,” bilang tugon sa nag-comment ng isang follower na nagsabing inspirasyon niya ang aktres at hindi na rin ito nahihiyang magsuot ng swimsuit.
Sa nag-comment na happy siya dahil finally, may Filipino celebrity na nagsalita about self love at pag-dedma sa mga body shammers, sagot ni Iza: “Been speaking out for quite some time now and I know I am not the only one. So happy that more and more young ones are fighting against the oppressive beauty standards we have all been a victim of! Mabuhay!”
Isa sa mga nag-comment sa post ni Iza ang kaibigang si Sunshine Dizon na ang sabi, “My idol and inspiration! Thank you for inspiring me to learn to let go and love my mama body with battle scars. Love you always my soul sister.”
“Kapit bisig tayo sa laban na ito, Kaps! You are more than beautiful, you are worthy! Love you!”
