The Shapermint Crew is a diverse community of Shapermint ambassadors. Up next in our #ShapermintCrewLove Series is one of our Shapermint Crew Brand Ambassadors, Jen Henderson. Read to discover why she wants to shape change with us.
You’re one of our Brand Ambassadors, part of the Shapermint Crew! What inspired you to join the Crew?
I recently lost 70lbs and have had a boost in confidence. Initially, I wanted to hide my body because of all the extra skin I have and dimples, but then I realized my body is beautiful regardless! So, I wanted to encourage other women to embrace their bodies and be confident, no matter what society wants us to think our bodies should look like.
What do you enjoy most about being on the Crew?
Seeing all the other confident women and the way they style their pieces!
How do you want to shape change with us?
I want us to normalize, not think there is a standard body type! All bodies are beautiful!
How do you define body positivity?
It's embracing all shapes and sizes and not being afraid to show a little skin! - Jen
How does Shapermint help you celebrate your shape?
The shapewear definitely lifts and tucks all the areas in my body that need a little shaping so that I can look smoother in my clothing and feel and look better in pics!
Self-love is especially important. Do you have any particular rituals or routines that spark self-love?
I moisturize my entire body... I know it sounds silly, but to me, this gives me an appreciation for the body that I have so I like to show it, EXTRA love, by touching every part of it. I also like to take myself out on dates, I've learned to fall in love with spending time with myself... it's not always a fancy date, sometimes it's just laying in the park reading a book, or sometimes it's a solo trip to a luxurious resort.
We absolutely love the fact that you use social media as a liberating force to celebrate body positivity and other movers & shapers out there. Are there any women on social media who inspire you to be your best self?
I love love love @itsmekellieb @msporterdidit @criscavallari @monroesteele and @theworldofmorgo
What is your favorite Shapermint essential? How do you like to style it?
I love the body shapers and the biker shorts. I like to pair biker shorts with a colorful blazer, and leggings are a frequent part of my airport attire. I also really like swimsuits!
When was the last time you tried something new that you thought you couldn’t do? Can you share more?
This is a hard one because I try my best to attempt to do everything even if I don't think I can do it. I guess I would say being a content creator on social media. It took me a really long time to be confident enough to show my entire body and share my life and adventures with the world. I never thought I could create reels (I thought it was going to be too hard) and I never thought brands would actually be interested in working with me. This whole thing is still mind-boggling but I'm so thankful for it!
Looking in front of the mirror, what would want to tell yourself?
Keep going boo! You've come a long way!
