"These were taken a few seconds apart while I was at the beach the other day, the photo on the left is what I look like relaxed and not posing, basically how I look 99% of the time in a bikini! And the one on the right is how I look in good lighting, flexed and posing," she wrote on her Instagram.

"I wanted to share this because I know how it feels to go through Instagram and see photos of people looking amazing...So don't get caught up on how they look and compare that to your everyday relaxed body," she wrote.
