Nadia's full post read: "Years ago I got papped on a beach in a bikini and the article discussed how I could dare to go on the beach at the size I was. I was a size 14.

"Sadly this [expletive] me up for years... to the point where I literally never ‘dared’ to go on the beach or by the pool again in a bikini again without a cover up on.

"Thank god those days are well and truly in the past! I feel as joyful and liberated in this video as I look!

"FREEDOM from my OWN and OTHERS 'STINKING THINKING' is a wonderful thing.

"I have a dream that my daughters and yours won’t have to go through the body fascism so many of US have had to.

"But that dream can only come true if we all work hard to make a change by being kinder to ourselves and others #letsnotjudgeeachother.

"Ditch the sarongs girls because…
