Not having it: the 24-year-old clapped back on online trolls who said her breasts lift & # 39; lift & # 39; in the dress
Her own thing: Tanerélle revealed that she had considered using tape, but decided not to do it because she loved the way her natural breasts looked
& # 39; I don't have to lift my chest to wear a dress on all negative comments about today's looks, & # 39; she wrote down twitter. & # 39; I am a woman and my natural qualities depend and I love it and I do not intend to change it to fit your eyes. I live here, my dreams are focused on better things. & # 39;
Together with the tweet, she shared a picture of herself while making a pose in her dress for the event, as well as a picture of herself on the red carpet that evening.
Tanerélle, whose number & # 39; In Women We Trust & # 39; was played in H&M stores and on the Teen Mom show, also shared a screenshot of her tweet on Instagram and elaborated on her decision to abandon a bra or tape.
& # 39; Some say I missed a critical step yesterday when I got ready & # 39 ;, she wrote in the caption.
& # 39; What they don't know is that I literally taped a thick piece of tape from the bottom of my left boob to my shoulder, looked at it, and made a conscious decision to take it off because I really liked it the way my natural breasts looked compared to the "perfect" option …
Viral: the singer went to Twitter to tell her critics & # 39; focus on better things & # 39 ;. Her tweet has received almost 60,000 retweets and more than 280,000 likes since it was posted
Self-assured: Tanerélle has also shared a screenshot of her tweet on Instagram and elaborated on her decision to abandon a bra or tape. She placed this photo of herself before the red carpet event
& # 39; The last time I checked what I thought about how I looked was the only thing that counts, so I continue to do so because it would be f ***** g impossible to please EVERYONE when it comes to ME , & # 39; she added.
& # 39; I can't be everyone's favorite and I don't want to be that, but as long as I can go home and feel good about myself, especially because of the self-hatred I have grown throughout my life … I am GOOD. & # 39;
The singer also said that she is more concerned about the number of women who hate their appearance and therefore feel unworthy.
& # 39; What I care about is that many women are trapped in a rush of self-hatred, that people please you and project how you feel about you in an effort to make someone feel the same, & # 39; she explained.
& # 39; What I care about is that there are women who still allow the male gaze to determine their value and what they can and cannot do. This memory of socialized spirits regarding a woman's body always rocks me a little, but it won't overthrow me, & she continued.
Loved it: the model's message resonated with many women who thanked her for giving them the confidence to caress their natural breasts
& # 39; It just intensifies my mission to push self-care and self-love even more. You owe it to yourself to at least try to embrace the parts of you that you don't like because someone else said you shouldn't, & she advised.
& # 39; Your body, whatever it looks like, does everything to keep you alive and thriving every day, that deserves all the love and care I can give for me, so I'm gone. & # 39;
Tanerélle ended her post by celebrating breasts in all shapes and sizes, with the words: & # 39; Cheers to the t ** s !!! Small t ** s, large t ** s, fake t ** s, no t ** s, all t ** s! And cheers to be a f ***** g woman. & # 39;
The message of the model resonated with many women who thanked her for giving them the confidence to caress their natural breasts.
& # 39; From a naturally gifted woman, myself, who tried bathing suits yesterday afternoon and didn't buy b / c, I thought my breasts were "sagging", I say THANK YOU so much! & # 39; wrote a Twitter user. & # 39; Your powerful words have moved me enough to go back, buy 1 and don't give F * (& !!!! & # 39;
& # 39; I will never wear a bra again, the child has given me freedom, & # 39; someone else said. & # 39; The damn thing is extremely uncomfortable anyway, I can't remember ever enjoying a bra on my skin. & # 39;
Message: Tanerélle continued to tweet about her breasts and wrote & # 39; Let Em Hang & # 39; while sharing this photo & # 39; s
Body-conscious movement: the singer later posted a video about herself and thanked people for their love and support
Fortunately: & # 39; I had no idea that a moment that I would put myself up would change into all of this, but I am so full of love and so full of gratitude, "she said.
Another person added: & # 39; She just gave me inspiration !! Braless all summer 2k19! & # 39;
Tanerélle & # 39; s tweet has received nearly 60,000 retweets and more than 280,000 likes since it was posted on Sunday evening and returned to Twitter a few days later to post a video of herself thanking people for their support.
& # 39; I just wanted to say thank you for all the love and all the positive messages I received & # 39 ;, she said in the clip. & # 39; I had no idea that a moment that I stood up for myself would end up in all of this, but I am so full of love and so full of gratitude.
& # 39; I wanted to thank all the women who shared your personal stories with me, personal experiences, whether it's with eating disorders, body dysmorphism, hating the body you're in, because of what society said you should want, & # 39; she added. & # 39; You are absolutely perfect as you are and I cannot emphasize that enough. & # 39;
Tanerélle also gave a shoutout to her friend Chidera Eggerue, who created the #SaggyBoobs Matter online movement to challenge society's expectations of what breasts should look like.
& # 39; This is not about me, it is about all of us as women coming together and supporting each other and embracing us and loving us, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Thank you again. & # 39;
