IDK who needs to hear this but… ? WEAR A BIKINI IF YOU WANT TO WEAR A BIKINI. You don’t have to be a size 0. Swipe for my storytime and have a great summer ❤️ (edited to say: this accidentally sounds like an ad but it’s not- but I mean, if you want to buy ANY high waisted bikini and wear it, tag a pic so I can comment)!
“What I was struck about Hawaii is that everyone wears bikinis,” she shared. “It does not matter what your body type is. You rock a bikini because you’re in Hawaii. There’s so much body positivity there, that I, who is always really shy about my body, would wear bikinis.”
Kaling played Kelly Kapoor in “The Office” sitcom from 2005 to 2013. Recognition for her work on “The Office” include a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series in 2010. She gained wider attention for creating, writing, producing and starring in “The Mindy Project” comedy series.
