Motsi already has to “breathe a little in between” during the photo shoot. Posing in underwear is a bit different from the sexy outfit she wore as a dance professional. “Let’s Dance” enthuses the judge, “but it’s not just being a woman here and changing, it’s cool too.” She’s thrilled that more and more “ordinary women” appear in campaigns like this: “Body positivity, diversity, women’s empowerment. It’s not a trend, it’s our life,” she says.
For Motsi, that includes loving her curves: “And especially women like me, who have a large bust size by birth, tend to be shy and hideous and always have a sense of being over-sexy. That you say “No, this is my body. That’s how I am, that’s how I was born and I have the right to wear a bikini. I also want to go out and feel good in my body. I think that’s absolutely important.”
She’s Not Competing With the “Victoria’s Secret” Angels Here, Explains Motsi, who will be part of the long-awaited “Let’s Dance” tour in November. “But I love beautiful underwear.” And for him it is simply important “that we really see the breadth of humanity as often as possible”.
