Team GB cheap plus lingerie in lingerie Brit beauties peel off to show sporty women are sexy too
Bryony Shaw, Amber Hill and Stefanie Reid have ditched their kit to show that sporty women can be sexy too.
Swapping their typical sports attire for racy black lingerie, trio Bryony, Amber and Stef posed in their undies to encourage school girls not to worry about their bodies.
The girls, who are gunning for gold at Rio next month, hope their #bestrongbebeautiful campaign with Bluebella will encourage more girls to stick with sport.
Their saucy shoot comes as body image is fast becoming one of the biggest stumbling blocks for female athletes.
The startling results showed that girls start to feel self-conscious about their bodies by the age of 14 – with just one in ten of girls continuing to do physical exercise.
More worryingly, 75 per cent of girls agreed that body image had a part to play in their decision to quit sport because they are “self-conscious of their bodies”.
Paralympian long jumper Stef, 32, who showed off her toned figure in a matching black bra and knickers, told how confidence comes within and is not something you can fake.
Stef, who lost her right foot in a boating accident aged 16, said in a video for the campaign:
“For me strong is beautiful because it speaks on a quiet inner confidence. It tells a lot about being strong. Strength doesn’t come from circumstances around them. You can’t fake it. it’s something that you have to live out every single day.”
Her fellow model, windsurfer Bryony Shaw, 34, won bronze in 2008 – the first ever women’s windsurfing medal for the Olympic team.
Bryony, who dared to bare in a cut-out mesh corset, said she was finally happy with the skin she was in.
Bryony said: “I love looking at my body now. I am really proud to show it off with sleeveless tops and bras.”
Skeet shooter cheap plus lingerie Amber Hill, 20, who became the sport’s youngest winner aged just 15, surely knows more than anyone else the pressures of body image while in sport.
