"I think it is so beautiful to feel confident [about your body]," remarked Bailey.
Further, the singer told Katie Krause of Extra that it is normal to use photo filters to enhance your looks, but one shouldn't "let it ruin the image of who you truly are inside and out."
"You are beautiful in every form that you are," Bailey claimed in her response.
Bailey's sister Halle, who was also present during the video conference, said she had body insecurities of her own growing up.
Halle, one-half of the Bailey sister's R&B group Chloe X Halle, cited her sister as a "perfect example" for learning to accept oneself and one's flaws.
She said watching Bailey go through her journey of self-love has inspired her to do the same.
Unlike her sister, Halle always wanted to gain weight and get over her petite look.
She further told Extra how she was slowly embracing to love her body, and her petite body is okay.
"As I am getting older, I am realizing, I am in shape," Halle remarked on her body.

Later, Bailey told the host how she managed to embrace body positivity and refrained from her thoughts and feelings being controlled by others.
"I kind of had to not give it so much power," she added to her previous remark.
As per Bailey, she hasn't done anything wrong by appreciating and loving herself and her body.
