LeAnn Rimes thinks wearing a bikini is “liberating,” but that’s only because she had to hide her skin for so long because of a medical condition.
The 32-year-old country star said she’s had severe psoriasis since she was a child, and because of it she had to wear “pants or jeans and two or three pairs of pantyhose” in the summertime.
“It was a nightmare,” Rimes said. “I’ve had it under control for about 10 years, so its been this liberating thing for me to be able to wear shorts and a bikini.” (PHOTOS: LeAnn Rimes Slips Into Her Birthday Suit)
“People make so much fun of me and my bikinis, but I would walk around naked if I could because I was one big scab at one point!” (PHOTOS: LeAnn Rimes Just Proved She Still Has Her Bikini Body)
“I think, as women, were constantly judged on everything we do and say and wear. I would be lying if I said I didn’t think about it, but at the same time theres moments when I just don’t care.” (PHOTOS: The Internet Thinks LeAnn Rimes Posted A Photo Of Her Nipple)
