Stacey Solomon has been praised by fans after embracing her “extra tummy fold” in her latest holiday snap.
Solomon posted a picture of her enjoying the sunshine in an orange bikini on her Instagram page on Wednesday.
The Loose Women panellist wrote: “Nature = the prettiest backgrounds. No filter needed.
“Loving my extra fold over tummy lines this year, they look like a six pack wahoo! Winning! Happy hump day xxx.”
Fans flooded Solomon’s post with comments about her “beautiful” picture, praising her for “keeping it real”.
One wrote: “Keeping it real. Well done @staceysolomon. This is what young girls need to see a real woman.”
While another said: “I love your honesty, you’re an amazing role model xx.”
“You are a role model to all the young girls and ladies out there! Stay being you! Fabulous xxx,” gushed somebody else.
The former X Factor finalist has regularly spoken out against body-shaming, explaining to the Standard last week that she feels a “responsibility” to hit back at trolling.
Solomon said: “Before I did speak out, people were telling people how I should feel and how I do feel so there will be articles about my body and how it wasn’t good enough.
"That’s not how I feel about my body and I felt it was my responsibility to say that and to display that I like who I am despite what society tells me I should look like.”
