Despite the fierceness of the modern body positivity movement, there are still many women who feel the need to hide their light under a bushel. (So to speak.) While inclusiveness is certainly the name of the game as far as many advertising campaigns are concerned, it’s still difficult for many of us to nurture self-confidence in our physical appearance.
Fortunately, Britney Spears is here to show us the way.
Over the course of 2017, Britney has proved that there is zero shame in loving yourself, and that you can rejoice in your body as blatantly and obviously as you please. If you look especially hot, why not take that mirror selfie? If you’re proud of your abs, why not share your pride with the world? If you’re casually painting outdoors, why not have your tits out? Such is the Britney philosophy — which we could probably all stand to put into practice, occasionally.
In honor of Britney’s unabashed year of self-love, I’ve gathered up some of her most delightfully entertaining thirst traps from the year. And if you think I’m exaggerating when I say “thirst traps”… well, I can assure you that I’m definitely not. (But hey, what Britney lacks in subtlety, she certainly makes up for in enthusiasm.)
So, without further ado, here are the hottest and proudest Britney moments of 2017:
1. This casual ab-brag. (In case you were curious about that six-pack.)
2. When show showed off her artistic side while wearing a teeny sports bra. (A truly ICONIC look.)
3. The time she reminded us all that she can still rock a bikini as a top.
4. Any of her MANY home fashion shows. (Britney filmed at least three of these fashion montages over the course of the year.)
5. When she showed off her rockin’ bod during an outdoor workout sesh …
6. … Multiple times.
7. When she casually alerted everyone to the fact that A.) she has killer abs and cleavage, and B.) she can still do the splits, bitch.
8. This not-so-subtle snapshot that isn’t even trying to be a selfie.
9. When she reminded everyone that she basically INVENTED the low-rise pants-tug.
10. When she channeled her inner beached mermaid.
11. These photos, which are pretty much all about THOSE LEGS.
12. When she modeled this practically-naked dress.
13. When she stepped out in one of her iconic, plunging bodysuits.
Britney: please, never stop showing off your abs and your killer workout regimens. We need your confident thirst-traps to sustain us in 2018.
