Felicity Hayward is known for for her super successful modelling career and her body positivity movement ‘Self Love Brings Beauty,’ so it’s not surprising that she hit back at body shamers by doing what she does best, by rocking those killer curves.

The beautiful Felicity was on a trip to Greece relaxing on a beach with her gal pals, when a couple decided to start making fun of the plus size model while she sunbathed in a thong style bikini.

So Felicity, being the self-love advocate that she is, decided that she would pose for a super empowering, uber glamorous bikini shot in the sea in front of the couple, which she later posted to her Instagram.

She wrote: “To the couple sitting on the beach making fun, laughing and taking photos of me and my friends enjoying our holiday in our lil bikinis, I will stand in front of you for 15 mins and take this banging photo, because my body is just as worthy as yours sweetie.

“Just because you have a toned gym bod doesn’t mean you are worthy of more respect.”

“Comparison is the stealer of joy, so i’m gunna live my best life like this and you can carry on with dealing with your own insecurities.”

Stretchies are sexy ⚡️⚡️ #SelfLoveBringsBeauty
