LOOK: KC Concepcion Celebrates Her Latina Curves

KC Concepcion has a message to all her body-shamers: you won’t be able to bring this Filipina and her “Latina curves” down!

In an Instagram post, the 35-year-old actress shared a gorgeous snap of herself flaunting her body as she wrote, “Making my Portuguese curves shine everyday… in case someone’s been living under a rock, curves are in, curves are NOW, curves are TIMELESS and having this ultra feminine shape?? I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

KC shared her experience of being constantly judged for not passing the rather unrealistic Beauty Standards that Asian women like her are pressured to live up to every day, especially at the time she took a break from the showbiz limelight.

“I used to get body-shamed when I went on my 3-year hiatus for not having that Asian, stick thin body (for an Asian like me), and many women like me get affected by this mentally, emotionally and physically,” she said.

However, after realizing that there are much more pressing matters to be concerned with than our physical appearances, KC gained the confidence to love herself and her body.

“Going through a pandemic and realizing the big picture issues of the world, I realized life is to be celebrated, and enjoyed… Like, why would I choose to develop an eating disorder over losing all the extra weight healthily? Why choose to lock myself up comparing myself to everyone else, when I could be dressing up for these fire feminine hips and that booty (that some girls even pay to have by the way)? Celebrate LIFE. Tomorrow is not promised.”

She then ended her post with a note of self-affirmation: “Serving you… a FILIPINA with LATINA CURVES. I’m here to celebrate all Filipinas who are like me.”

Preach, KC!
