For swimwear designer Karina Irby, bikinis are basically her uniform. She sunbathes in them, dances in them and even got married in one. But instead of posting highly edited bikini pics like other influencers, she likes to celebrate her natural beauty. On Instagram this week, the 33-year-old flaunted her “strong and sexy” body in a printed two-piece. In the gorgeous images, you can see her unairbrushed skin texture and curves. The Aussie babe revealed she’s been on a journey of feeling healthier this year – and is celebrating her figure as a result.

Karina captioned the photos: “Woke up feeling strong and smexy. “To address the elephant in the room (I see your comments about my weight) yes, I did lose a few kgs over the past nine months. “But I was never on a weight loss journey. I was/am on a mind, skin and health glow up! “Now I’m in the phase of trying to gain weight and build muscle I’m starting to feel even more A-MAZE-ING! “And you know what that means… EAT! EAT! EAT! Lift! Lift! Lift! Sleeeeeeeeeeeeep!”

Karina promised her 1.2 million followers there’d be more sexy bikini snaps to come. She added: “Watch this space for the booty gains.” And it’s safe to say her fans are excited! One gushed: “Just breathtakingly beautiful.” Another said: “I have so much respect for you. I have a similar body type and I literally hate 90% of pictures I’m in. Would love to have your confidence boo – you look amazing.” And a third added: “You are one of the most real, body positive people I follow. Thank you for keeping it real with a great (funny) personality.”
