When it comes to our adoration for Serena Williams, there are too many reasons to count. But with a Tuesday morning Instagram post, our admiration for her famous frame took a curve.

Posing in her Serena brand Retro Fit Jeans ($135) in the light wash, Williams—in a very familiar setting—showed off one of her less famous assets. Employing a one clever and very juicy emoji, she captioned the pic to let us know that her jeans, which tout an ’80s-inspired fit with minimal spandex (1 percent), are cut to fit those of us in possession of a fairly high hip-to-waist ratio, like Williams herself.


Since most conversation about Williams’ body centers around how strong she is (a true, but an incomplete assessment), we loved this little reminder that she’s sexy and shapely, too. Our only beef? That for now, her Retro Fits are only available up to a size 32—which, unfortunately, leaves a lot of even curvier girls out of the equation.

Hopefully, those plans are in the works soon, because our peaches need love, too.
