Aly Raisman's Body-Positive Instagram is the Best Thing You'll Read Today

Aly Raisman is constantly inspiring us with her words of wisdom, and she penned a gorgeous essay about staying positive through everything earlier this year.

Now, she is speaking out again, this time about body-shamers, in a fiery and eloquent Instagram post.

The 23-year-old Olympic athlete uploaded an Instagram of herself wearing a deep-V one-piece swimsuit with frills, looking positively stunning — but, as the caption reveals, that so isn’t the point.

“Wear whatever makes you feel happy and confident,” Aly writes, “Don’t EVER let anyone tell you how you should or shouldn’t dress. We are all entitled to wear what we want.”

She then says something especially important: “Females do not have to dress modest to be respected.”

*bursts into applause*

“Be proud of your body,” she continues, “It’s never about the number on the scale it’s about the way you feel. You are all unique and beautiful in your own way. No one is perfect. AND no matter who you are, male or female, we all have those days of insecurity. We are all human. Everyone’s story is important. EVERYONE. You never know what someone is going through. Thank you all for continuing to inspire me each and everyday. Spread the love guys and enjoy your Monday.”

Aly‘s words are catching the Internet’s attention, and fans are calling them “beautiful,” “true,” and “strong.”
