While most women her age would obsess over big breasts to look sexy, Kapamilya actress Julia Barretto boldly says she is proud of being flat chested. In fact, her breasts were never an issue to her, so she doesn’t really get offended when bashers point out her being less gifted.
In a past interview, Julia has already mentioned her preference of not wearing bra at all times because “walang kinakapitan”, as how she puts it. Surprisingly, that moment has marked Julia as a champion of women empowerment. Since then, her oozing self-confidence made her shine as an ambassador of women who don’t rely on the society’s standards just to look and feel sexy.
Julia has since then become an inspiration to girls with body issues. Other netizens would tag her in their photos, saying they became a lot open about their flaws due to Julia’s encouraging take on sexiness.
More so, Julia believes that loving her body ignites more creativity as well in terms of her fashion sense. For instance, Julia is known for using nipple tapes and under garments with built-in padding. “I’m comfortable this way. Mas happy ako sa katawan ko na ganito”, Julia relates.
In fact, Julia gamely auditioned for the highly-coveted Darna role even if some bashers still point out that the Darna costume won’t fit into her breasts, which she also admits so. In her interview, Julia was asked to re-enact her Darna audition while wearing a piece of the costume overlaid on top of her blazer.
““Hindi talaga kumakapit”, Julia quips while fixing the Darna brassiere. Nevertheless, she pulled off the superheroine’s iconic transformation and sounded convincing as she delivered the “Darna!” yell. Though, Julia doesn’t want to be full of assumptions but if offered to do the role, she would definitely say yes.
