Mom-of-2 Jessica Simpson Says She's Owning Her Body -- Big Boobs & All

Jessica Simpson, vacation vibes

If you're breathing, there's a good chance you've dealt with some body scrutiny at one point or another, if not regularly. This sexist and completely inaccurate notion that our bodies must match some type of formula of perfection can be further amplified if you're in the spotlight, but mom-of-two Jessica Simpson made it clear during her interview with Women's Health that she won't fall prey to the media's vicious attacks ... and that now, after having kids, she only loves her body even more.

The singer, who admits to having been "every size there is," has decided to unapologetically love her body, from her boobs to her tummy. Simpson reportedly told the magazine, "After having kids, I look at myself and I'm like, you know what, my boobs are actually really big, but I like how they are" -- and this is despite the fact that, as she says, her boobs tend to "have a life of their own." (It's only an added bonus that her hubby likes them.)

Although she admittedly had considered a breast reduction at some point, she luckily found solace in just owning her body for all that it is -- the imperfections and the evolving perfections. She is said to have told the magazine:

I'm hard on myself, I believe everything is a work in progress. But that's okay. I do love my legs, but my favorite physical attribute is my nose, because it's not perfect ... but recently, since I've worked out so hard, I'm also loving my stomach -- knowing I grew babies in it, and then having to go through a transformation and just owning it.

Of course, this hot mama looks pretty perfect to us.

Beyond just trying to love herself, she's encouraging all women to do the same. Simpson cites both the problem and the solution, pointing out:

"... women are very jealous of each other, but they are also supportive of each other ... If we can all own what we love about ourselves, we won't have to have the jealous part."

Which weirdly is a truth -- well, for myself at least! I can encourage my friends to work out, eat better, and generally be better, but continue to obsess over how I would die to have her abs or boobs. However healthy the competitive nature of it may be, it certainly can't be the best for my (or any of our) self-esteem -- constantly pitting ourselves against one another in that way. 

Hell, don't even get me started on the unrealistic expectations placed on women after having children. I don't even have kiddos and I find myself praying for the love of all things good that I have genes that will allow me to snap back into something that society finds acceptable. 

So, I find it admirable that she's found the courage to just love herself regardless of the media's constant scrutiny and attempted takedowns. Hell, with a positive attitude like that, haters will die trying before actually achieving anything.
