Sixtine Rouyre is back with another gorgeous and inspiring self-love video. The 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie took to her favorite social media platform, TikTok, and shared a sweet post for International Women’s Day.

She wore a dark purple lingerie set with a balconette-style bra and lace underwear.

“How I love having a woman’s body,” read the on-screen text. Rouyre attached audio featuring music and a voiceover that said, “How I love being a woman.”

The model posed in the sun with her dark brown locks worn loose and naturally wavy. She came up closer to the camera and showed off her curves, thighs and back.

“Stretch marks and squishy thighs. Soft tummies. Back rolls,” the New York City resident wrote on the screen. “A woman’s body is a beautiful creation and should always be treated as such.”

The body neutrality influencer has built her TikTok community to 800,000 followers and often shares inspiring messages with videos of herself and her body.

“reposting in honor of #internationalwomensday,” the NYU Gallatin alumna captioned her March 8 post. “For so long i resented being a woman and all the trials and hardships that come with existing in a female body but realizing just how truly special it is to be a woman has been the greatest gift I’ve given myself.”

The 25-year-old encourages women to love their bodies at any shape and size and know that the self-love journey is anything but linear. She hopes her SI Swimsuit feature will reach women who may be able to see themselves in her.

“I don’t want to be just another pretty face on a billboard that’s been Photoshopped to the nines,” she said. “I really want people to [feel represented] and I want someone to say, ‘Oh, well that girl is not a standard size 0, 5'11" model, she looks like me. She has the same body as me.’”
