Jill Duggar has surprised fans by rocking a series of swimsuits on social media.

The former reality star, known for her conservative outlook and growing up wearing modest clothing, took to Instagram to share some new looks from brand ModliFashion.

Younger sister Joy-Anna loved the looks, however, commenting: "You're beautiful Jill," to which Jill replied: "Aww, thanks sis!"

"You look so happy and cute!" added one fan as another praised Jill for "living your best life!"

Mom-of-two Jill has been estranged from her family in recent years, with husband Derick Dillard accusing patriarch Jim Bob of withholding money from his children over their years on TLC shows 19 Kids and Counting, and later Counting On.

She has also branched away from some of the family's more conservative beliefs allowing their sons to attend public school, wearing more revealing clothing, drinking alcohol, and speaking out about birth control.

Derick has also claimed he and Jill are not welcome at the family’s compound unless Jim Bob is there, and alleged that Jill had been cut off from her younger siblings, many of whom she had helped to raised.

However, she recently spent time with 19-year-old brother James, who helped her to celebrate Derick's law school graduation, and she has also been spending time with sister Jessa, a mom-of-three.

The sisters are rarely seen together but they took their children to the Vintage Days Market in Bentonville, Arkansas, and Jill documented the fun day on social media for fans.
