Jameela Jamil on body positivity 

Taking to her Instagram handle, Jameela Jamil shared a short video where she can be seen showing her jiggly arms to her fans. For the video, Jamil can be seen donning a dark blue outfit with floral prints. She completed her look by opting for a sleek fringe hairdo, kohled eyes and matte lips. She also added a line in the video that read, “having a soft girl summer”.

Along with the video, Jameela also penned a note revealing details about the same. She wrote, “This is just a video to show you that you can have these arms at any size and to not let our cultural obsession with perfect thin toned SJP/Aniston arms stop you from wearing sleeveless or from posting brilliant photos from your holiday. These arms are normal. I’ve had them at every age, at every weight, and by the way, I lift weights and these are still my Arms. And many other eternally squishy parts”.

She added, “Shake that jiggle in celebration of the biggest ride or die you’ll ever know. Your body. Don’t waste time being self-conscious because the media gets advertising dollars from diet/exercise brands and so made us neurotic for no reason to manipulate us into spending money on things to ‘fix’ what was never ‘broken’”. Jamil concluded by saying, “#softgirlsummer for the win. Spend that money and time on your mental health instead of diet culture, for one summer, and see how you feel”.
