Draya Michele got brave today. Well, after a giant spandex-clad bendover at the gym ensured the 35-year-old kept fighting fit. Draya, followed by 8.1 million on Instagram and this year in the new for seemingly losing her SavagexFenty promo gig, was proving she’s still going strong. She shared a major muscle and booty display from her workout followed by what most women dread – removing bikini line hair. Draya, who trains with “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter’s trainer MackFit, went from gym bunny to swim one. Check it out below.
Scroll for the bikini action. The “Basketball Wives LA” alum began admitting that she wasn’t too in the mood to workout on Thursday, but the Mint Swim founder put in the effort – then showed off the results.
The videos, shared from the gym, showed the mom of two flaunting her super-ripped and curvy body in patterned leggings with a little designer injection from a Helmut Lang hoodie – Kim Kardashian adores the brand. The clothes were skimpier for the hair removal, though.
Keep scrolling for more photos. Draya’s next stop was at a beauty salon, where she had both her underarms and bikini line attended to. “Been getting laser hair removal for a few years,” Draya told her fans as she was seen masked and wearing both a bikini top and shades.
Draya, who admitted “surviving” the treatment, then hit up a fast-food joint with major disappointment. Everything seems closed right now because of COVID. No Popeye’s for Draya. But she’s got plenty going on.
Draya, best known for her stint on “Basketball Wives LA,” is now gearing up for her very own “Doses of Draya” show, airing on streaming platform Zeus. The 10-part docu-series will offer a behind-the-scenes take on the swimwear designer’s life, with Draya herself making a pumped statement this summer.
“I’ve been on a pretty incredible journey over the past decade, and I’m grateful to my fans who have been with me through the ups and downs,” she said, adding that “as a woman of color,” she was excited to be supporting black-owned business Zeus.
Draya, who founded Mint Swim in 2011 with the $12,000 she saved up, has been celebrating the tenth anniversary of the company valued at $1 million in 2017. The Kylie Jenner-approved brand got a giant shout-out last month as Draya posed in a bikini and told her fans:
“Celebrating @mintswimusa 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY….. we created a capsule collection of 2 of my favorite styles in this neutral feather print. Hope you guys love !!! @mintswimusa link in bio ? (very limited)”
