Bebe Rexha put body positivity first as she stunned Instagram in a skimpy bikini back in 2019. In a photo that's still live on her account, the singer went completely unedited as she showed off her fit and curvy figure from a beach, and her "real woman" caption made instant headlines. Rexha, who has been body-shamed in the past and has admitted to "starving" herself due to pressures to be thin, looked confident and healthy as she posed in her two-piece, and fans have left her over 1.1 million likes. In her caption, Bebe said that she "should" have used Photoshop to make herself look slimmer, but her fans definitely didn't appear think so.

Rocking shades and pink-tinted hair, Bebe wore zero makeup as she kept the finish natural, something that very much fed into her caption. Addressing fans, she wrote: "I probably should of photoshopped my stomach and made it look flat. I probably should of photoshopped my legs to make them look thinner. I probably should of made myself look taller and Smoothed my legs. But I didn’t. Society can really fuck with you. Here is what a real woman looks like on Instagram without photoshop."

Fans were quick to send their support. "I thought you look gorgeous as is," one said. "We prefer this," another supportively replied. "You look good no one should be so worried about little things," agreed a third. Bebe even gained a celebrity like from singer and actress, Hailee Steinfeld.

Says Designers Refused To Dress Her

Bebe has proven an open book when it comes to Hollywood secrets she alleges are alive and well in the industry. "A lot of times artists will go and talk to designers and they’ll make them custom dresses to walk the red carpet. So I had my team hit up a lot of designers and a lot of them do not want to dress me because ‘I’m too big,'" she revealed in 2019.

The star added that if being a size 6-8 is "too big," she just doesn't "know what to tell you."
