Sexy is not a size. Every calorie is not a war. Our bodies are not a battleground. And our value is not measured in pounds. ⠀⠀ Let’s be kinder to our bodies and remember that another woman’s beauty is not the absence of yours. ⠀⠀ what would you say to your younger self? #bodypositivity #joja #LiveTrainTogether #Jojalife
“Don’t you guys think it’s kind of hypocritical to say that sexy is not a size while being a VS model promoting unreal body image and not featuring any plus-size models ever?” one fan questioned. Several other commentators agreed with the remarks and posted similar comments, pointing out that if size didn’t matter then the fashion industry wouldn’t be solely hiring thin models.
Fans of the two models, however, immediately came for their support and wrote that the hotties don’t have to pay heed to people’s negative comments, adding that the two ladies are amazing and truly inspiring.
Prior to posting the said picture, Josephine shared a workout video with the fans wherein she could be seen dressed up in black gym leggings and matching shirt while performing some dips. The model wrote in the caption that the exercise is great for toning one’s abs, back and arms. Fans appreciated the model for sharing the easy exercise as it neither requires equipment nor too much effort.
According to an article by Vogue, VS models train like Olympic athletes before the fashion show to attain their perfect figures. Regarding the idea behind Joja, Tookes told the outlet the following.
“We both really love fitness and health, and we wanted to give people a deeper look into our everyday fitness routine.”
