Influencer flaunts booty smile in thong bikini after spending years insecure

Body positive influencer Karina Irby has revealed she used to be "self-conscious" about her behind, but now loves her "booty smile".

The Australian beauty, who also owns her own swimwear line, often likes to post uplifting content of herself frolicking on the beach in teeny bikinis.

And, she is certainly not shy about flaunting her gorgeous curves to her 1.2 million followers.

So keeping up with what she knows best, in her recent Instagram post Karina has stripped down to a yellow, orange and white thong bikini to embrace her peachy bum in all its natural glory.

As she faced away from the camera, she leant to one side to showcase her tanned bottom which still had water droplets on from where she took a dip in the sea.

But, Karina had not always been so confident about her pert bottom.

The blonde babe has shared that she used to be insecure about her ‘booty smile’.

A ‘booty smile’ is how the bum cheeks sit, if they sit in an upward motion it creates a ‘smile’ like appearance – just like how Karina’s does.

The influencer felt so "self-conscious" about her bum "smile" that she would choose to cover up with shorts when going to the beach.

However, Karina has now learnt to embrace her ‘smiling’ derriere.

She captioned the post: “BOOTY SMILE

“Fun fact about me – Years ago my booty smile and praised thin culture were the main two reasons I lost too much weight.

“I was incredibly self conscious of my booty smile and would only wear board shorts to the beach.

“I’d ‘lift’ my butt cheeks in the mirror to see what I’d look like if I didn’t have them. Seriously, it was a whole deal!.”

Karina then addressed the beauty standards of women and how different figures are adored more than others.

She claimed: “It’s interesting how certain body types go in and out of “fashion”. It’s sad isn’t it?

“Your body shape isn’t fashion. Don’t forget that.”

Inspired by Karina’s booty "smiling" post, many people fled to the comments to praise Karina for embracing her natural body.

One person commenced: “It Really is SMILING.”

Another user added: “What a smile!! When you have a beautiful smile you might as well share it.”

Whilst a third person voiced: “Absolute perfection!!”

Someone else gushed: “You look amazing.”

Meanwhile, a fifth fan praised: “Thank you for this! As I have been gaining weight I’ve found it hard to see the shape of my bum and bum smile change and not be the “conventional” nice round smile anymore.”
