Louisa Johnson has shared an empowering message with fans, encouraging them to be comfortable in their own skin. The former X Factor winner posted before-and-after snaps of her bikini body on Instagram, and admitted that she has put on a little bit of weight over the past few months due to being happy.
The So Good singer revealed that far from being uncomfortable with the changes to her body, she was more confident than ever.

Sharing the post with her 816,000 Instagram followers, Louisa wrote: "I just wanted to share this because it makes me happy looking at it. All from being ME and being HAPPY. Only a lil difference but a big difference within. It made me realise that feeling comfortable from within and making the most of what you have and not what you don't have is so important."
Louisa also offered some advice to her fans, telling them: "Let yourself be who it wants to be, don't worry bout what other people want/think/look for. Be you. I'm realising that J LET YOURSELF GROW & CHANGE! I don't want anyone thinking they ain't no good cos you really are in your own way. You have something that no one else does."
The 18-year-old was unsurprisingly inundated with praise from fans, who thanked her for her honest and body positive post.
The singer said she felt more confident than ever
"Beautiful!! An inspiration to young women, teenagers and younger girls. Well done," one user commented. Another wrote: "This is encouraging just what I needed to hear."
Louisa has had an incredible year since winning the X Factor in December 2015. As well as seeing success in her music career, the teenager has also found love with her boyfriend Daniel.
The Tears singer often shares loved-up photos with her boyfriend on social media, recently writing: "Love my baby".
