Jessie James Decker offered Instagram something to look at that isn’t a doom-and-gloom headline today. The 31-year-old country singer and reality star took to the platform in swimwear, although her promo post for the Kittenish brand she runs didn’t ignore the novel coronavirus currently seeing millions begin a new lifestyle from home – COVID-19 has now been confirmed in all 50 U.S. states, with the global death toll sitting at over 9,800.
Jessie’s Thursday Instagram update attempted to keep some things normal – businesses are, after all, under more pressure than ever.
Jessie’s photo showed her in her element and posing against a multi-colored, painted brick wall as she flaunted her sensational post-baby body – the “Eric & Jessie” star welcomed her third child in 2018. Jessie was wowing the camera in a stylish and banded bikini in leopard-print, with the sexy two-piece doing wonders for the blonde’s flat stomach, killer hips, and cleavage.
Jessie smiled while looking downward, also sporting a summery straw hat, plus a full face of makeup accentuating her features.
Jessie had taken to her caption with a mention of Kittenish’s latest merch.
“Y’all @kittenish 1st swim drop is live! Hats and swim and sunglasses oh my!! For everyone sitting at home… here’s just a little something to help you pass through the time and dream about when you can wear it out by the pool again!! ✨ and guess what??? FREE SHIPPING,” she wrote.
Replies came in virtually immediately.
“YAY!!! Getting mine” was one comment.
“Just bought mine!!” saw one user appearing to have already hit checkout.
Amid the gushing over Jessie and her merch, replies did come in with mentions of COVID-19. Not everyone seemed to feel that posing in a bikini and flogging one’s product is appropriate during a time that’s seeing millions face economic instability and panic.
“There’s a national emergency going on, people are dying, countless people have lost their income and you’re promoting your swim launch. Seriously?,” a fan wrote, with others agreeing.
For the most part, though, comments were positive.
“That swimsuit looks amazing on you. You are amazingly beautiful,” one fan told Jessie.
Earlier this year, Jessie made headlines for admitting that she’d gained a little weight on tour – this followed the 25 pounds the singer lost after welcoming her third baby.
More recently, Jessie took to Instagram in itty-bitty swimwear with a reveal on what’s keeping her so trim – the post was a promotional one for South Beach Diet (also fronted by 22-year-old reality star Savannah Chrisley).
“y’all know how much I believe in @southbeachdiet … it helped me after baby Forrest to get back to my pre baby body,” Jessie began, adding:
“I’ve been using South Beach for years and I can tell you, it is amazing and absolutely works! Their keto-friendly plan is low sugar, high protein, tastes great, PLUS it’s delivered right to your door which makes it so easy! How much can YOU lose in 90 days?”
