Aly Raisman Helped Simone Biles With Her Body Confidence

Simone Biles is opening up about how certain haters used to bully her for her muscular arms, and just how Final Five teammate Aly Raisman helped her overcome it.

“People would say mean things at the time. They used to call me a ‘swoldier,’ which didn’t make me feel the best,” the Olympic gymnast shared in a piece with Today. “I wore sweaters or jackets all year long to cover my arms.”

But although she was bullied for being more on the muscular side, Simone has learned to love how she looks with help from Aly.

“Aly Raisman helped me a lot with my body-confidence issues and helped me learn to love how I look,” Simone adds. “She’s taught me a lot along the way, but most of the time it’s just the same message: love yourself.”

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to wear makeup that day, if you don’t want to do your hair that day or anything else. You’re human, too, so do what you like.”
