Small Boob Icon - Zoe Kravitz

SMALL BOOB ICON – ZOE KRAVITZ
Here’s another in our hugely popular Small Boob Icon series, where body and boob confidence comes as standard!
What can you give the woman who has everything? Zoe Kravitz – born of a gorgeous, rock star father who’s been an icon for nearly 30 years, and an actress mother who looks like your (slightly) older sister. She has the genes, she has the talent – in both music and acting - and she has the award-winning career to go with it.
So, Little Women decided to make her our own small boob icon – and here’s why…
A true natural beauty
Lack of body confidence can lead to eating disorders
Zoe has been candid and upfront about her own battle with eating disorders – plural - as she has suffered both anorexia and bulimia.
She told Marie Claire Magazine back in 2015: "It was f–ked up. You could see my ribcage, as I was just trying to lose more weight for the film. I just didn’t know when to say, 'You're there. Stop.' It was scary, but it forced me to not only confront my demons, but also realise and accept my own insecurity that's still there, and it’s all too easy to fall back into that pattern."

Fighting false body and beauty image
Lots of people – both male and female – feel the pressure to conform to set body and beauty images. The media, movies and doctored images all over the internet. Zoe, too, has fallen victim to the false prophets of how we should look and what ‘beauty’ means.
"I don't think it was about the fame, but I think it was definitely about being around that world, seeing that world, but I did feel pressure [to be thin].”

Even celebrities feel less than body confident
Zoe even felt that pressure at home too!
"My mother's a beautiful woman and I think, in some way, I sometimes felt intimidated by that. And my dad dated a lot of supermodels."
Now, we don’t all have rock star dads with supermodels on their arm, and as good as Zoe had it and as great as her talent and beauty genes are, she clearly saw herself in a less than confident light. Interesting, isn’t it? Maybe, just maybe, we’re all a little bit too hard on ourselves when it comes to body image.
Being too thin is not good for you – period!
Being too thin can impact on feminine health and even affect fertility. One of the most amazing things about being a woman is the fact that we can bring new life into the world. If that, as our last word, isn’t enough to convince anyone considering unhealthy crash diets or over-exercising to re-consider, we’ll let Zoe have the final say:
"I went through eating disorders while at high school, so it triggered some old issues. I ended up so thin that I wasn't getting my period. It was scary.
"Part of me didn't want to gain the weight back again, which was really, really scary. But other people were saying, 'You look so good!' I was thinking, 'Oh my God, that is so disturbing.'"
We couldn’t agree more, Zoe. Having your ribs sticking out is not a sign of a great figure – it means you’re unhealthily underweight.
Remember ladies, at Little Women we’re keeping it real! The images we see on TV, in the movies, in magazines and all over the internet have often been photoshopped. We promise, at Little Women we will never, ever, photoshop our images to present or promote unachievable body image goals in others. And that, is a promise!
