Cathy Hummels shows up on her Instagram channel without a bra and wants to encourage other women to do the same.

“I’m working on something very special. Something I’ve wanted to do for a few years. A body and soul retreat for women,” with these words, moderator and influencer Cathy Hummels begins a post on Instagram, with a picture of her. At first, everything seems harmless.

His new position is celebrated for another reason. Because under her advertising message she posts a personal statement: “I do not like bras. I am a woman and I am proud of it. (Only in sport)” underlines. The pride she describes can be seen in this photo – and her followers are celebrating too.

Cathy Hummel’s latest post with over 10,000 likes

Her followers on Instagram are enjoying her post with all kinds of comments, approval and so far more than 10,000 likes.

She obviously doesn’t want to lose her pride in herself and her body. In her view, so-called body shaming – that is, the attempt to spoil the pride and joy of one’s own body – is still prevalent. “I don’t think anything has improved, otherwise we wouldn’t be fighting for such body positivity,” she said recently in an interview with the German Press Agency (dpa) in Munich.

She recently teamed up with fitness influencer Sophia Thiel to bring attention to the subject. Women in particular still have to justify their bodies. “My mission is for you to stop letting others define you and have others tell you what’s normal and what’s not,” said Hummels, who repeatedly faces critical comments that she is too thin.

“I think a lot of people are just not happy. And then you try to distract yourself and point fingers at other people,” Hummels said. “But there are different shapes, there are different sizes and as long as you are healthy, anything goes.”
