Karla Estrada bares her beach body
By posting on Instagram photos of her wearing different swimsuits on the beach, actress-host Karla Estrada said she hopes to inspire other “plus size” women to be more comfortable with their bodies.
“It seems like there are still many people here in the Philippines who are not open to the fact that big people can wear swimsuits, too. And there are people like me who becomes wary of going swimming altogether, because we get mocked,” she said in her morning show, “Magandang Buhay.”
“The sea is there to be enjoyed by everyone!” she declared.
“I want to help and tell women my size that there are bathing suits out there for our body type,” Karla added. “So, to all people, especially Filipino women out there, don’t be afraid. Go wear what you like and carry it with confidence.” —ALLAN POLICARPIO
