Emily Ratajkowski: 'Breasts are beautiful not vulgar'

Emily Ratajkowski says women should wear sexy clothes if that empowers them.

Emily Ratajkowski is bothered that people are offended by boobs.

The model-turned-actress has been vocal about the subject of breasts in recent weeks, telling Harper's Bazaar Australia earlier this month (Jul17) that she’s lost out on work because of the size of her chest.

She’s now moaned again to Allure magazine, this time not just about her bust, but women’s boobs in general.

“It really bothers me that people are so offended by breasts,” she vented. That’s when I realised how f**ked our culture is. When we see breasts, we don’t think of beauty and femininity. We think of vulgar, oversexualised images.”

Emily, 26, found fame after dancing topless in Robin Thicke’s music video for controversial hit Blurred Lines.

She’s not shy about showing off her flawless body, and once again bared a lot for the Allure shoot. And talking about dressing seductively, Emily says she’s all for women empowering themselves by dressing in a certain way.

“To me, any expression that is empowered and is your own as a woman is feminist. If a woman decides to dress sexy, it doesn’t mean she’s not a feminist,” she stated. “(We) should be doing things for ourselves. If that is the woman’s choice, and it makes her feel good, then that’s great. Good for her.”

Emily also broached the subject in a piece for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter last year, opening up about the fact she developed a size D-cup chest at the age of 12.

“I wish the world had made it clear to me that people’s reactions to my sexuality were not my problems, they were theirs," she penned.
