Yesterday saw Stacey take to Instagram to promote her new bikini line – and make a brave confession.
Whilst showing off her new bikini line, Stacey confessed that she has anxiety about stripping down to her swimwear.
In one of the posts on her story, Stacey posed in a white and yellow flower print bikini.
“I am fully aware that there are so many people who will have their opinions on what I look like because I am no Victoria’s Secret model,” she captioned the story.
“So I was nervous making swimwear and then modelling it and then sharing it on here but no matter what anyone says about you or how society tends to make people feel about themselves, just keep telling yourself…”
“[Bleep] what anyone else thinks. Don’t give them that power,” she added.

“I was so nervous about designing a summer range that included swimwear but you all have really given me so much confidence to just go for it,” she captioned the post.
“I’ve always wanted swimwear that covers my flaps and can hold up my boobs so I’m so so proud of this!” she continued.
She then went on to express excitement about the launch, saying: “I’m so so happy with it and can’t wait for you guys to see it all.”
