Serena Williams photo shoot for the August issue ofÂ 'Harper's Bazaar' has Williams in a shapely swimsuit. The upper part of the swimsuit was fitted to accentuate her bustline as well as soften the neck area. Serena Williams claimed that the swimsuit shows off her voluptuous body.
In the magazine, Serene Williams talked about her body image,
"She's totally different( referring to sister Venus). I'm super curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She's tall and she's like a model and she fits everything. Since I don't look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good,"
Here's what Williams had to say about the dreaded D word, diet,
"I don't even know the D word." Serena Williams said she sticks with "smaller portions of every meal, a lot of grilled or baked chicken or fish, and steamed veggies. I can never turn down a good piece of cherry pie, but all I know is that in 10 years, I don't want to be as wide as this couch."
What a great interview and Williams sounds like a very likable person. I'm glad she embraces her body and sets a good example for girls out there who look to her as their idol!
