Serena Williams recently posed for the Sports Illustrated 2017 Swimsuit Issue and the American was looking amazing.
The 35 year old was flaunting her athletic body in a series of thong-style swimsuits, including a stunning bright blue one-piece. Speaking about the shoot, Serena said she wants people of all shapes and sizes to feel comfortable and confident in their skin.
"I want people to come away with the fact that it’s okay to be comfortable in your body. I’m not a size two. It’s okay to look good and feel good and I’m strong. It’s okay to look strong and to be sexy and to be a woman and to be unbreakable — all those things," she said in a filmed interview for the magazine.
"I really want to have that influence for people out there that have my body type. I want them to be like, 'I look good too.' That’s what I hope for."
She also said that it took a while to get used to posing in such a skimpy pair of bottoms.
"I’ve never worn a thong bikini, so for that to be my first shot was like a shot of espresso for me because I had to wake up immediately."
She further added, "The thong is perfect, it really made me feel comfortable. I'm officially a thong girl now!"
