Draya Michele took less than 20 minutes to have Instagram zooming in on her ultra-tight jeans today. The 35-year-old reality star and Mint Swim founder’s Sunday update also managed to rake in the female fans – given that the “Basketball Wives LA” regularly tags the brands she wears, the total absence of any pointers quickly had a fan writing: “I was hoping she tagged, lol.”
Draya admitted to being “shy” in her photo, seen below. The star whose 2011-founded swimwear brand regularly sees her stripping down to bikinis she calls “roomy” was out to showcase more than her killer curves, though. Twists are where it’s at today.
Draya’s photo showed her looking a little caught-off-guard as she posed with her super-curvy booty to the camera. The tightest jeans known to mankind were showing off the ex to Orlando Scandrick’s hourglass figure, with a long-sleeved white crop top keeping things simple as Draya placed one hand against a plain wall and modeled her new hair twists.
“This my first pic with the twists because I’m shy ☺️,” Draya captioned the photo as she clocked herself a sweet 55,000+ likes in just 24 minutes. Keep scrolling for Draya’s hottest IG photos.
COVID-19 – which has seen Draya epically caption her bikini snap: “I like ’em 6 ft away” – was quickly alluded to in the wave of comments pouring in. For Draya, it was the thumbs-up all-round as she was called “A whole snack” by one fan – a reply quickly came in as another user wrote: “A whole face mask.”
“In my mind…my body looks just like this. But in the mirror…it’s laughable ??,” another wrote.
“Oh my gawd ???” was all one fan could manage.
Draya made headlines earlier this year for showing Instagram how she “officially owns the corner.” A giant Mint Swim billboard in L.A. proved that business is booming for this star – Draya’s brand kicked off with the $12,000 she saved up back in 2011, with 2017 seeing the company valued at $1 million. Two years later, billionaire Kylie Jenner was cherry-picking Mint Swim to feature in her “Kylie Skin Summer Trip” to Turks & Caicos. Mint Swim’s clients also include 27-year-old superstar Selena Gomez.
Promo for Mint Swim has continued on Draya’s Instagram despite COVID-19. The star made headlines for eyeing up 80-degree heat in a tiny string bikini on April 19, returning for her “6 ft away” thirst trap on April 25. Activities from Draya have also seen her reach out, though, with Mint Swim partnering up with Doordash to deliver Chipotle burritos to L.A. hospital workers amid the pandemic. As Draya wrote, Doordash “doubled the order” when they got wind of it.
Draya has 8 million Instagram followers. Her account is followed by celebrities including Nicki Minaj, Ayesha Curry, and Larsa Pippen.
