Mother Wears A Bikini In Public To Prove ‘All Bodies Are Good Bodies’

self acceptance

Last month, Jae West stood in the middle of London in her underwear and a blindfold, silently beckoning passersby to draw hearts on her body in a display of support for body acceptance.

On August 29, Amy Pence-Brown repeated West’s experiment in the Capital City Public Market of Boise, Idaho.

Eager to broaden the landscape of praised body types, Pence-Brown launched one major message in her video: As the 40-year-old tells her own children,

All bodies are good bodies.

In an interview with USA TODAY, the feminist artist admitted her decision was not reached without apprehension.

She shared,

I was really worried that no one would draw a heart… Not only did I have a lot of skin to show, but it’s thick skin.

Pence-Brown’s Saturday in the square proved her own bravery and the warm, supportive natures of so many in her community.

  1. All bodies are good bodies, as long as you're healthy. God bless for giving confidence to many women.

  2. And this gives confidence...self - acceptance...
