If you’re looking for something to brighten up your day, look no further. Actress Danielle Brooks said she’s gotten tons of positive reactions to her body positive Lane Bryant campaign! She is going to continue her mission of promoting body positivity. Furthermore, other designers will see the value of doing this themselves.

Danielle joins other celebrities including Gabourey Sidibe, Ashley Graham, and Candice Huffine in Lane Bryant’s #ThisBody campaign. Lane Bryant carries clothes from size 14-28.

In a series of photos and videos, the women share their body positivity journeys and dance.

According to an interview between the Orange Is The New Black fan favoriteand The Cut, the reaction to the campaign has been overwhelmingly positive. Brooks said:

“I have not really come across too many trolls, which is nice. Women are seeing themselves and are feeling beautiful about their bodies because they’re having people who are bold enough to say that they’re fearless in their skin.”

Danielle Brooks makes sure to remind people that it is representation that truly changes hearts and mind.

By seeing different types of women on screen and in advertisements, we lessen the societal stigmas that say women should look a certain way. Instead, we make it safe for any woman to feel glamorous and well-dressed. Brooks continues by saying:

“It’s been cool to get their reaction and see women be proud to be in bathing suits and not be afraid of showing stretch marks or whatever.”

Danielle Brooks is the perfect spokesperson for this movement. Not only are her characters powerful, she doesn’t hold anything back in real life, either. Her fashion taste is impeccable, inspiring other women to dress however they want, no matter what their size is.
