Stacey Solomon has always been one of our favourite relatable celebrities – not only is she a dotting mama but she’s innately funny, suitably stylish and, most importantly, totally at ease with herself.
And nothing demonstrates her ‘this is who I am’ attitude quite like her latest Instagram post, which has been heralded by her fans as ‘amazing’ and a ‘true inspiration’.
What is the post causing all the commotion? Oh, just a relaxed but totally empowering snap from her girly getaway with her fellow Loose Women hosts.
The 28-year-old mum of two, who is currently in a relationship with fellow TV presenter Joe Swash, was pictured on a beach in Ibiza with co-panellists Kaye Adams and Nadia Sawalha as they threw their arms in the air and smiled to the camera.
Wearing nothing but their swimwear and sunglasses, with the idyllic sea as their backdrop, Stacey captioned the cute snap: "No filter needed... This pic takes me back to the incredible @loosewomen #BodyStories Enjoy your summer and celebrate how wonderful you are inside and out... Every Body Is Beautiful."
For the shot, Stacey opted for a chic black ruffle bikini top with matching, tie-waist bottoms. Meanwhile, Kaye opted for a hot pink two-piece with a neon trim and Nadia, a black swimsuit with thin spaghetti straps. And you know what? We think they all look GORGEOUS.
Naturally, it didn’t take long for her 960k-strong legion of Instagram followers to see the photograph on her feed, and what ensued was an outpour of praise. And rightly so…
Clearly the candid, un-retouched photo struck a cord with her fans, with one leaving a touchingly poignant comment on the post. It read: "I honestly can’t tell you how refreshing it is to see a real body. You make me feel so much more confident about my own. Thank you x [sic]." We couldn’t agree more.
Another added: "Gorgeous natural beauty’s. Filters suck. Keep this up. So much love for you all [sic]."
One of social media’s biggest set backs is that it’s all too easy to be drawn into the seemingly ‘perfect’ lives of celebrities and public figures. So it’s refreshing to see someone like Stacey keeping it real and empowering us to love our own bodies, too. You keep doing you, Stacey.
