Little Mix might be one of the biggest girl groups in the world at the moment, but like most girls they have had some body insecurities. However, in a recent interview Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson have given their fans a powerful message when it comes to their bodies.
Now, after seven years in the music industry Little Mix have grown to love any bits about their bodies they weren't initially happy with.

Little Mix, then
Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall looked very young in 2011 after winning The X Factor. To be fair, they were all teenagers at the time!

Speaking to Glamour UK, Jade Thirlwall said, "I used to really want a boob job because I use to really hate my boobs because I’ve got like a double A. But now I’m like f--k it, I love my boobs. I’m rocking it now and it’s really weird because if you asked me that six years ago, I would have been sad, but ask us now and I’m like “come and get me!"
Jade went on to say how she's, "Just learnt to love them," and now feels a lot better about them accepting what she has, saying, "Well, it’s just what my mamma gave me”.
Speaking in the same interview, her band mate Jesy Nelson revealed she had considered bum implants, but she now embraces her 'jiggly bum'. "Not to be big-headed," Jesy said, "But we are all at a stage where we really do enjoy ourselves at the moment.
"A couple of years ago, I would have said we were all quite insecure and felt like we hated certain things about our faces and our body and now we have just learnt to accept them and genuinely things I hated, I now love."
She continued, "I like my boobs and… I just like everything at the moment, I’m really enjoying myself! You need to embrace it! I don’t care about having a fake bum; I’m just happy with my nice, normal, jiggly bum."
Perrie Edwards, who's 25-years-old, also revealed that she has been criticised over her eyebrows, however she calls them 'Marmite' saying, "People either love my eyebrows or hate them so they’re like Marmite. I love them, I love a thick busy brow."
Perrie also isn't shy of showing off her stomach scar, which she received after having a number of operations as a child.
In the past, Perrie has bravely opened up about her operations and to celebrate 70 years of the NHS she recently thanked them for 'saving her life'. Taking to her Instagram Story, Perrie posted a clip of herself as a child checking out her scar. Alongside the video, the Little Mix star wrote, 'Thank you for saving my life! I'm eternally grateful #nhs70'. She then added, 'I ❤️ NHS'.
