Angela Simmons likely stopped several of her fans in their tracks recently when she popped up on their Instagram timelines rocking a tiny black string bikini. The two-piece swimsuit showed off the entrepreneur/media personality’s enviable curves. In the photo, Angela wore her hair down and it flowed past her shoulders in loose curls. She accentuated her eyes with dark smoky shadow and eyeliner, pairing that with a nude lip color.
The bikini Angela wore is part of the merch line for her app, Purpose. According to the bio on the project’s Instagram page, its goal is to “empower and support one another through all dimensions of womanhood.” This uplifting message was reflected in the caption of Angela’s post, in which she opened up about how she built up her self-confidence over the years. She talked about loving herself “no matter what” and how she had to learn to avoid dealing with other people’s issues in order to focus on her own inner growth.

Angela is no stranger to flaunting her curvaceous body in bikinis on Instagram. In an upload posted to the social media platform in December of last year, she posed on a beach while wearing a pink string bikini under a white cover-up with appliques that sparkled in the sunlight. According to the geotag on that update, the images were captured during her vacation in Bali. She accessorized her look with a long blue tassel necklace and circular sunglasses, and wore her black wavy hair down in both photos.
“Working on me for me,” she wrote in the caption.
The upload proved popular with Angela’s fans as it has racked up over 120,000 likes and more than 1,100 comments.
