"This weather will NOT win over the #thickgirls!" Danielle Brooks posted on Instagram
Danielle Brooks isn’t shy about showing off her body.
The Orange Is the New Black star, 26, shared a selfie on Instagram on Sunday while wearing a purple stomach-baring shirt and jeans with text reading, “It’s so hot, I’m showing tummy all week!”
“This weather will NOT win over the #thickgirls!” she captioned the photo. “Might not be small but I’m hot!! Literally and figuratively.”
The actress also wore a crop-top in a mirror selfie she posted on Saturday.
“Feeling pretty groovy,” she captioned the snap.
Brooks recently shared a photo from after a spin class, in which she “proudly” worked out in just a sports bra.

Last year, Brooks posted about finally feeling comfortable enough to work out without a shirt on.
“I’ve always wanted to do this but have felt shameful and have told myself, ‘until my body is perfect I’m forbidden,’ ” she wrote on Instagram. “Today my inner-being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love. I should not be ashamed of my body. I’m not a walking imperfection! I’m a Goddess.”
“Secondly, I’m a confident woman!” her post continued. “That doesn’t stop once I take off my Spanx. Sometimes it’s a struggle. Sometimes I don’t like what I see, but I have the power to change the way in which I relate to my body both physically and mentally. Today I woke up feeling beautiful and motivated to love myself and take care of the one body that I’ve been given. I’m not saying, ‘World take your shirt off, twist it round your head, spin it like a helicopter,’ I’m saying everyone live in your confidence.”
