How I Learned To Love My Body: Raeann Langas & Kristina Zias—Botox & Filler, The Pros & Cons of Curve Modeling & How Health Scares Impact Body Love
One of the most common questions that I get during my Sunday IG Q&As is where my body confidence comes from, and to be honest, I developed it even at all somewhat recently, and it’s still very much a work in progress. Because it’s something so many of us struggle with, I decided to invite on some of the most confident women I know and ask them: how did you learn to love your body?
My guests today are Raeann Langas and Kristina Zias. Raeann is a content creator, curve model, podcaster, and body acceptance influencer. Kristina Zias is a host, curve model, fashion blogger and body activist who also hosts size inclusive style segments for Access Hollywood and KTLA. Together, they host a super fun podcast called The Confident Collective, which they actually interviewed ME for, so definitely head over there and check that out—I shared a lot of stories and thoughts I haven’t shared anywhere else.
On this episode, we talk about:
* What they do on bad body days
* How to know when to change things you don’t like with things like Botox, filler, surgery, or even hair dye, versus accept it
* The one trick that can make anyone feel more body confident
* Behind the scenes in the curve modeling industry
* How Kristina's pacemaker and health issues have impacted her relationship with her body
* Pregnancy, childbirth, and the impact of motherhood on body love
