Australian bikini model Karina Irby has won praise from fans after revealing she gained 10 kg and "never felt better."
Karina accompanied her message of empowerment with two photographs, one showing her at 54 kg and the other as now, a good dose of 64 kg.
He then detailed the difference between the two photos to his million fans, welcoming the presence of "tits, ass, hips and thighs".
"This morning Facebook informed me of a memory of 9 years ago. I was so shocked to see how small I was when I was a teenager!"
He went on to describe how he felt when his body started to change, making her feel "clumsy".
"I remembered that while my body was maturing I was gaining weight, curves and other false reasons to feel aware of my appearance.
"I used to put so much pressure on myself to try and maintain my teenager's look, but not only was it unhealthy, it wasn't just in my papers".
After gaining 10 kg, he said: "I never felt better about myself mentally and physically.
"What I'm trying to say is stop being so hard on yourself. Your body is beautiful and keeps you alive! Worship the devil! I wish I had done it before."
Of course, the response to the post was crazy – with hundreds of praise for the model for her "brave" post.
"I love him so much !! Thank you so much for putting yourself out there and giving the message to embrace and love yourself and your body as it is," said one person.
"Ohhhhh my god, THANK YOU! Another said.
"This is crazy. You look so amazing now," one delirious.
While many others have called Karina "beautiful" and "brave".
Karina – who owns Moana Bikini – regularly shares positive messages on her social media, helping others to feel safe wearing skimpy swimsuits, regardless of the shape and size of her body.
Last week he shared an authorizing clip on his eczema, saying that "he will never have perfect legs" while describing it as "ok".
"No, I'm not contagious," he wrote, next to a video of his thighs visibly affected by the skin condition.
"I wanted to publish a raw video of my current skin situation. I will never have perfect legs, but I'm fine with that. At least they take me from A to B."
Last month he shared another powerful one before and after his physique shot in two different pink bikinis taken three years apart, revealing "so much has changed".

This morning Facebook sent me a reminder of six years of a period of my life that seems so distant, it's like it never happened. In the photo on the left, I had just started my @moana_bikini label and I was working on two jobs to support myself and my new business. I thought I had to be thin and small to look good in my new entrepreneurial adventure and promote swimwear. Not only that, but I thought it was a duty to be accepted in my personal life and in relationships. I thought I was happy, but looking back I was lost, trying to find a way to happiness and accepting myself. Not only my body has changed, but also my safety, my mentality, education, relationships and the level of maturity. Today; I love myself – every little thumb. It is not arrogant or self-absorbed; it is simply the acceptance for what I am … and I love it!
Not everyone has been nice in the transformation of the bikini designer, with some online critics who used to call her cruelly "fat".
However, Karina clapped her trolls last year, beating their behavior.
"The trolls will comment that I'm now fat, but I'm actually a happy and healthy woman. I was pretty unhealthy in my first picture. Don't eat well and don't take care of my body.
"Yes, I gained weight, both fat and muscle, but now I'm training four times a week and I'm eating for my body. It's crazy what food and weights can do."
